We can learn a lot from the way an elite or professional sports club manages its team and operations. Whether football, rugby or any other team sport, we can take certain practices and apply them to the way we look after our own star players and wider team.

In this webinar we join three big names in rugby who have hung up their boots and are now using their skills, experience and business acumen in the corporate world. We will be looking at how companies can improve performance, beat the competition and work hard as a team to overcome challenges – as well as focusing on what organisations can do develop, train and retain their talent.

Our panellists will discuss:

  1. How to improve the wellbeing of individuals within the team
  2. Communication, goal setting and feedback
  3. Coaching and mentoring – and the relationship between mentor and mentee
  4. Attracting and retaining the best talent and how to manage superstars
  5. Using technology to its best advantage to improve wellbeing, training and development

Who should attend?

Anyone involved with managing employees. Relevant for business of all sizes and sectors who want to develop and empower their teams.
