fls supports the improvement of leadership through sport
Leadership is a fundamental driver of performance for individuals, teams, coaches, administrators and whole organisations. We work with these groups to develop leadership qualities that will aid success whether within or outside the sporting environment.
Our aim is to encourage and facilitate athletes and sporting organisations to invest in leadership development. This includes National Governing Bodies of Sport, universities and clubs.
Directors and Associates have extensive top-level experience in leading and coaching within sport, business, public service and the military. The know-how and knowledge of world-class practices is drawn from all these sectors.
FLS seeks to assist in improving the effectiveness of sports organisations, enhancing sporting performance and enabling athletes to transfer their leadership skills to careers and fields beyond sport.
‘Taking control of emotion in sport, business and the military’
On March 11, a very successful workshop was held at Bristol’s Ashton Gate stadium. The theme was ‘Taking control of emotion in sport, business and the military’. Frank Dick and Claire-Marie Roberts gave inspiring presentations on the subject, Frank basing his more on practical experience and Claire-Marie on research in the field. Their talks led to a great deal of discussion among the delegates.
A discussion panel, comprising sporting Internationals Eboni Usoru-Brown and Elenor Snowsill, plus Lt Col Justin Baker, Mark Evans and Gordon Lord provided fresh insight based on their own experiences.
