Delivering results through people with Clive Woodward.

Clive Woodward’s former coach Jim Greenwood said about him: “Clive organises the England team as he would organise a big company”.

Both sport and business are about delivering results. To get good results, you need good people with the right mindset, ready to learn and embrace what is new. It’s a great bonus to work in a company which supports continuous learning, as does Hager Group; for example figures end 2018 are 30,000 training sessions face to face & e-learning within the group.

During the interview Clive explained that, “…every team member should be passionate about developing themselves because that helps you embrace all the changes that are out there. I think my background in the business world, my time at the multinational Xerox as well as my own small IT-leasing-company, was clearly an explanation for my success as England coach. Both taught me a lot about how to deliver results through people and indeed I set the English team up as if it was a business.”

According to Sir Clive Woodward, being successful as a team necessitates each team member being given the chance to contribute to their best. The important thing is to give them a platform and listen to them; the best ideas can come not only from the leaders or most experienced, also people who’ve been in the company the least amount of time.

The conclusion: in competition as in business, everyone - if united - can contribute to success.
