“The score takes care of itself”
A simple formula…as Bill Walsh author of the fabulous book “The score takes care itself”, get the plan right, find the people.
I’ve had the good fortune of being invited onto a number of podcasts in recent times, with the links below.
It is important to seek out conversations with leaders who happy to share their lived experiences, and I have been so fortunate in this regard.
Podcasts are a version of these conversations.
While the common theme is football, I am more than comfortable in going deep in relation to important discussions for leaders, be it parenting, how we learn, mental health, finding purpose, and dealing with setbacks.
Each podcast offers something very different.
“Learning to dig deep and find something as a leader – understanding the leadership gaps in your life.
Cameron Schwab became the youngest CEO ever in the Australian Football League when he joined Richmond in 1988.
He spent 25 years of his career as a CEO of three different clubs, and there was one thing in common across the board: the clubs were all at their lowest ebb, uncompetitive on the field, and facing massive financial challenges.
He now takes his deep experience in leadership in sport and business to mentoring CEOs and senior leaders to build high levels of cultural and strategic direction.
“Cameron Schwab, 25 year CEO of AFL Clubs on leading in high stakes environments, hard decisions and creating high-performance systems“
Having taken on some of the sport’s most difficult and daunting challenges, Cameron established a track record of building teams and organisations, unifying groups while navigating periods of genuine adversity and complexity.
In this episode we talk about:
– The question you need to ask yourself to see if you’re ready for a promotion.
– The lessons he learned from the hardest decisions you can make – firing a close personal friend.
– How to implement systems that drive performance
– What we can learn from sport and what isn’t so transferrable.
– What we can all learn from fine art about life and work.
“In this week’s episode, Brendan sits down with Cameron Schwab.“
Cameron was an AFL CEO for over 25 years and was the youngest ever CEO in the modern game at just 24 years old when he took over the helm at Richmond!
The episode was jam-packed full of content I had to keep most of it in so we are split across 2 episodes here!
