Leadership lessons from the field revisited

This webinar series revisits contributions from sports psychologists and elite sports people; all with practical experience of transferring lessons from the sporting field to the organisational arena. Webinars will be Simulated live.

Effective teamwork is critical for completing tasks, improving motivation, sharing knowledge and resources as well as generating ideas: Even the most creative individuals won’t have more ideas than your team as a whole. Developing and leading a team is a complex undertaking. Team members often have to share resources and manage competing demands on their time.

Speakers

Linda Armstrong

Linda spent her early years chasing balls…(on the tennis court or the hockey pitch), so it isn’t surprising that she decided to kick-off her career as a tennis coach. It didn’t take long for Linda to realise she was ‘skint’ and to become curious about what else she could do to earn a living, and so she accepted a position at BUPA. Linda made a fast impression and left to continue to support her boss to set-up a US backed healthcare start-up.

More recently Linda, was given a remit by the BT Global Services Board to build a Partnership Centre of Excellence to provide BT Global Services with partnership expertise, supporting global outsource deals across both Public and Private Sector.

Linda’s leadership and change skills were also utilised within BT’s transformation journey; delivering people and organisational change programmes in the UK and overseas.

Pragmatic and energetic, Linda is a great asset, not least for her ability to accelerate people and business performance.
