EP079: 5 Leadership Secrets From One Of The Worlds Greatest Teams To Help You Win In Life

I grew up watching my oldest brother play rugby – something he still does to this day. The current captain of the Slovenian National Rugby Team, he has become someone the sport respects.

Growing up I would watch rugby with him; which led to an infatuation with the New Zealand All-Blacks. There was something different about them. And I loved the Haka they did before their games… even though I didn’t know what it meant at the time.

Fast forward two decades to my current life. As a business owner, a friend recommended a book to me called “Legacy”. The book covers 15 leadership lessons from the All Blacks. In particular, how they overcame struggle and a failing team to build a culture of champions that leave a legacy.

I devoured the book. Going onto a mission to learn everything about how the team has become the most successful team sports franchise in history.

In today’s podcast I wanted to share 5 lessons of leadership from my studies. I have implemented these lessons in my own life – using them to help me change things around so that they serve my vision for my business and life. I am confident if you apply them to yours, they will help you turn things around in yours too.

Let’s go.

  • The lesson you must learn to win in business and life
  • The one principle that is key to building a great team and overdelivering on results to clients – that will become the catalyst to you building an incredible network
