When I am not working as a consultant I am a rugby coach. I coach the Penn State Women’s rugby team and the USA Women’s Eagles. Rugby is my passion, and just like my work as a consultant I am focused on the development of the people and the team. I am able to bring my knowledge of best practice in business to my coaching, as well as my understanding of sport to my business clients.
Last week I got the chance to work with ExxonMobil, but not as a consultant. They invited me as an elite rugby coach to talk about how I develop teams and in particular how to create repeat success. It was an interesting task, and it made me think about how I coach.
Check out my ExxonMobil Presentation, and thank to Penn State Rugby Alum Laura Keating-Brannen for the opportunity.
