What type of leader are you?

As the Goal business starts to grow, I continually look at methods on how I would like to see the business take shape as we progress and grow.

My coaching philosophies have always been based around people and culture. I feel these two elements are the most important ingredients when building an enjoyable and productive environment, whether that’s in the work place or in the sporting world.

On a recent coaching tour of the USA, my horizons were broadened with all of the new information and experiences I encountered. However, the one thing that stood out the most for me was spending the day with US Navy SEALs Commander Jay Hennessey. He spoke about productivity and how everyone plays an important role in the successes of any organisation; even more so for a Navy SEALs teams when your life is dependant on one another. He went on to talk about everyone being on the same page, working together, encouraging new ideas and social connection in the work place.

A model Commander Jay Hennessey referred to was the ‘Super Chicken’, a TED talk by Margaret Heffernan. Without giving too much away, I encourage you to watch the link below and challenge yourself on what type of leader you are. Does your business or workplace have super chickens, if so what culture do you want to shape in your organisation?
