Building a Winning Team - Lessons from the Business of Sport

Wednesday 17 October, 12:30 - 16:30 at Linco;n City Football Club

When the Great Britain Women’s Hockey Team won Gold at the 2016 Olympic Games their coach at the time, Danny Kerry MBE, said of their performance throughout the games “It all sounds a bit clichéd, but it was the whole piece around values, visions and behaviours, and off the back of that they have driven a very high expectation of what their daily training environment looks like.” He emphasised that 'culture precedes performance' and the importance of common purpose. He encourages his players to consider scenarios and to work out for themselves how to 'find a way' in game situations. So for Danny, a culture and a style of leading through empowerment was key to his teams success.
