    Lockdown conversations with Paralympic athlete, Richard Whitehead MBE.

    Throwing it back to my Zoom conversation with Richard way back in May 2021 where he takes us through his perspective on building and working with High Performance Teams.

    Now in his mid-40s, Richard has had a vast range of experience in high-level sport in teams and individual events and is someone who proactively puts the right people in the right places within his team so that he can thrive.

    Key words include - ‘values’ and ‘expectations’ - and ensuring there is alignment on these core foundational areas to ensure a high-functioning team.

    I also love his determination to build a team who BELIEVE in his ability to perform to the standards that he sets, and if they can’t get on board with the vision, well keep listening to find out…

    It’s several months late, but the info is surely timeless
