My first passion was rugby, I started playing when I was 9 years old and in my first full season, we played in the local cup final against a team that was far better than us. But with the great coaching and the right vision we succeeded. I didn’t know it at the time, but that was a pivotal leadership moment for me and one that would go on to help shape my future career. I continued to play rugby until I was 43, both League and Union, often playing 3-4 games a week, sometimes twice a day – did I say it was my passion. Being from Yorkshire, a rugby hotbed, I was also fortunate to play against some of the best players in the world, Ellery Hanley, Brian Moore, Nigel Melville, and many, many more. At 18 I even had professional trials. But unfortunately, I was found "not guilty" of being talented enough to play at that level. Apparently, passion will only take you so far. At university I studied Mathematics, as my second passion was problem solving and math was a great mental toolset for achieving that, and of course, I also captained the university Rugby team. As I moved into my professional career, I discovered that my real passion was actually for building successful teams, coaching and developing people, creating strategies to turn around under-performing teams and failing projects, or delivering complex change programs. The bigger the challenge the more I loved to compete and to find ways to succeed. In a nutshell, my passion is Leadership. Now I speak, write, coach, and teach on leadership. I make leadership simple. I show people how to create engaged, empowered, and excited teams that will achieve amazing results. Just like my average rugby team did when I was 9 years old. Success is not about having the best players. It’s about having the right motivation, the right plan, and the right leadership. Building confidence and showing teams their true capability and then helping them to exceed their perceived full potential. Nothing gives me more pleasure than the look on the faces of people when they feel the pride of having achieved what they previously thought of as impossible. And now with that mix of passion and ability, I have been ranked, by Global Gurus as one of the Top 10 Leadership Experts, Speakers, and Trainers in the world.
