Who’s Your Team?

Take a few moments to reflect and look carefully at who’s on your team. Are there any gaps? And could a leadership coach be of benefit ?

In the wake of the AFL and NRL grand finals, you could be forgiven for thinking I mean football when I ask the question:

Who’s your team?

But instead I want to talk about who’s the team behind you as a leader.

I was listening to a podcast recently, and heard a sentence that really resonated with me:


Whether it’s on the sports field, in the boardroom, or elsewhere – success comes as a result of people working together! So let me ask the question again: Who’s your team?

Going back to football – while there might be a “man of the match” or other player singled out for glory by the media, the reality is, they wouldn’t be there without a team behind them. In the fullest sense of the word, that team consists not only of the other players, but also their coach; physio; masseuse; dietitian; psychologist; PR department; and the fans. It really does take a whole team working together to create success!

If you are a leader in the community, in management, or other sphere – take some time to pause and reflect today: Who’s on your team? And are there any gaps?

Building Your Leadership Support Network

As our star football player example shows, there needs to be more on your team than just the other players.

What about:

  • your partner/family;

  • mentor/s;

  • your leadership peers;

  • trusted partners in related industries;

  • skilled professionals;

  • a coach?

Who is stimulating your creative juices, and encouraging you to work smarter, not harder? Who is backing you up in the area of physical health and wellbeing? Who is helping you to develop a winning mindset?

While you may find inspiration and encouragement in the pages of a book, through a podcast, conference, or website, what it really boils down to is people and relationships. Who’s on your team?

If your team is lacking a leadership coach – somebody who can guide you with the evidence-based principles of psychology, and has a strong track record in business and leadership of their own – then please feel free to get in touch. I would love to have a conversation with you about the various ways we could work together – I would count it a privilege to be a part of your team, to help you achieve great things as a leader, whatever your sphere of influence. Let’s chat!
