Winners @work: FLP Workshop on 8th November from 6-730pm followed by drinks and networking. Venue TBC.
Winners @work: Why the entrepreneurial edge matters in identifying, developing and mentoring elite talent. What can you do to maximise your own talent. Lessons from the champions.
What does World Class Talent look like and how is it best identified and deployed? Do you have what it takes to get to the top? How can mentors make the difference? Richard Cross has conducted a unique benchmarking exercise examining personality and talent at work. This presentation explores what winners at work from international rugby players, Olympians and world champions to elite performers elsewhere such as head coaches, global CEOs, CIO’s award winning entrepreneurs have in common….and where they differ. The findings reveal the impact of personality at work including the basics of elite performance as well as the pivotal, game changing value of the entrepreneurial edge in leadership roles.
There are fundamental lessons that any individual and mentor can learn from benchmarking with ‘champions’ particularly head coaches. Using the benchmark data participants will be able to compare themselves to the best, reflect on priority areas for their own development and make their own luck.
