Sir Clive Woodward OBE
WORLD CUP WINNING COACH
Sir Clive Woodward is the World Cup winning Head Coach who led England’s rugby players to World Cup glory in Australia in 2003. He was a former England International and British & Irish Lion himself. During his tenure as Head Coach England moved from 6th in the world to being the number one ranked team, winning every trophy an England team can win.
In 2006 Sir Clive Woodward joined the British Olympic Association. As Team GB’s Director of Sport he worked in close partnership with key stakeholders in British Sport to support the national coaches and athletes at the Beijing & Vancouver Olympics as well as deliver Team GB’s most successful Olympic Games in the modern era at London 2012.
Based on the notion that “Great Teams Are Made of Great Individuals”, Sir Clive Woodward has identified four criteria, which he believes characterise a champion individual or team in both business and sport. ‘The DNA of a Champion’ details each of these criteria, but also how they can be coached to achieve high performing teams.
