The Twelfth Player (Why Teams Fail And What You Can Do About It!)
Is Fear Of Failure Inhibiting Your Team?
In 1996 two Blackburn Rovers players, dramatically, in the middle of a vital Champions League game, began fighting. Graham Le Saux and David Batty. Two experienced professionals. Going for each other!
But how? And why? What triggered this extra-ordinary outbreak of in-fighting in such a high-profile game. The Le Saux and Batty Moscow confrontation, goes right to the heart of the very reason why teams fail.
You Can Stick It Up Your ********
In 2002 Roy Keane theatrically walked out of the World Cup. Got the plane and returned to Manchester to walk his dog. His high profile stand-off with Ireland boss Mick McCarthy in Saipan, is still fiercely debated in the pubs and clubs of Cork.
But why did Keane sacrifice his dream of World Cup glory? This bitter and unresolved dispute, between captain and manager, goes right to the heart of the very reason why teams fail.
The Master Of Team Building...
In 1999, Manchester United scored two dramatic goals in the last last minutes of the Champions League Final, to secure an unlikely first elite title for Sir Alex Ferguson. Just when the Bayern Munich ribbons had been tied to the trophy. 'Football! Bloody ****', was Fergie's instinctive explanation, to this unlikely triumph in Camp Nou.
But what makes Fergie, a master of creating successful teams? What does he do, to create hungry winning teams year after year? And can his leadership strategies be transfered into your workplace?
