What gives the world's best leaders the edge?

Will Greenwood is best-known for being an integral part of the 2003 Rugby World Cup-winning team. Ben Fennell has spent over 16 years helping the world's biggest businesses and brands grow. Together, they have established that world-class performance - in both business and sport - requires a fresh approach, and a new set of behaviours.

Having spoken to inspirational leaders across all areas of business and sport, including Michael Johnson, Tanni Grey-Thompson, Rio Ferdinand, Dame Carolyn McCall, Dave Lewis and Sir Clive Woodward, the authors have identified the key characteristics of world-class performance. These guiding principles of celebrating difference, forging togetherness and accelerating growth constitute a new framework for modern leadership.

Packed with insightful personal stories, and often painfully learnt lessons, Will and Ben offer a new playbook for world-class leadership, learning and growth.

Excellent

I don’t normally write reviews, but this book was so good I felt I had to. Lots of great anecdotes in here as you may expect, but the messages were clear and easily digestible - summarising some excellent work or books. Not just about rugby, or sport for that matter, but drawing on a good variety of sources and environment to make it relatable to almost anymore. Can’t recommend highly enough!
