I’m excited to speak with Stuart Lancaster in this episode. Having held various leadership, management and coaching positions at different levels of the game, Stuart became head coach of the English national rugby union team in 2011. Stuart now coaches Leinster Rugby in Ireland. He currently sits on the Technical Advisory board for the Football Association and has worked with many other sports and businesses in delivering leadership lessons and ideas on how to create long term high performing teams.
A former PE teacher, Stuart talks about learning from his experiences during his teaching days. We also speak about the importance of sport psychology; mental skills being learnable skills; coaching styles and moving between the scale of coaching; developing players’ resilience in training; and what great leadership looks like.
