What business can learn from elite sport

Business often turns to the football codes when seeking to understand the key concepts of team, particularly, the role of leadership in terms of establishing a winning culture and executing a game plan.

While this analysis provides some important lessons, the learnings go far deeper.

Success in elite  team sport cannot be achieved without an uncompromising attitude towards the recruitment and retention of talent, and of course integrated and sophisticated coaching (teaching) at an individual and team level.

These differences are articulated in the following model “What business can learn from football”, and forms a key component of the Design CEO and Design Leader workshops. 

Built around the core principles of teaching mastery, the designCEO programs seek to mirror the teaching expectations of elite sport by focusing on: 

 

  • Cultivating human connection through high-intensity cohort learning. For leaders, with leaders and developed by leaders with a strong emphasis on peer connection and personal growth.
  • Designing productive struggle, but with the belief that you can, and will make progress. It will be ‘hard fun’.
  • Enabling deliberate practice, with highly structured and relevant activities with the specific goal of improving leadership performance.
