Will Greenwood & Ben Fennell - World Class: Lead, learn and grow like a champion

By Workplace Evolution

02 Sep 2021

Business Psychologist Michael Costello meets Will Greenwood and Ben Fennell to discuss their life lessons and new book "World Class: Lead, Learn and Grow Like a Champion". Drawing on insights from elite athlete & coaches such as Dan Carter, Kate Richardson Walsh, Rio Ferdinand, Helen Glover & Sir Clive Woodward as well as Business Leaders from Tesco, Unilever, Virgin Media the conversation explores what businesses can learn from sport and what sport can learn from business.

This interview shares lessons learnt from

The communications in the England changing room 5 minutes before the Rugby World Cup Final (winning the battle for hearts & minds) The good the bad and ugly of coaching during his three, yes, three, tours with the Lions (ensuring brilliance can create magic & "riff") How the team grew stronger not just through a player strike days before a test match but also a little conflict injected by the Royal Marines (England's 'Code of Conduct' and what leaders do to support the 'Disagree and Commit' process) And lastly Sir Clive Woodward’s incredible response to Will’s news that his wife Caro had been taken to hospital in England during the World Cup campaign in Australia (the importance of well-being, kindness and leaders investing in their character)
