Leading High Performance: Applying the Winning Principles of Sports Coaching in Your Organisation

    By

    How to develop high performance in any organization using the principles that drive success in sports coaching. In many respects business organisations reflect team sports. They both require people to operate in complex and highly competitive environments. Both environments require people not only to be the best they can be individually, but to cooperate closely over time to secure long term winning performance. In sport coaches are intimately involved in developing athletes, squads and teams and bring an impressive array of technology and wide ranging expertise to bear on all aspects of high performance development. There is much that business, especially leaders, can learn from coaches and sport. Leading High Performance takes those elements of sports coaching that are relevant to business and shows how the principles of coaching, sports science, training and even psychology offer tremendous opportunities for achieving high performance in all organisations. It looks at ways in which high performance is achieved in sport and describes, using examples, how this approach develops individuals, encouraging them towards high performance. It then analyses the most relevant ideas and techniques, converting them into easily applicable business models and tools.
