    我认为有必要在我们的“新闻简报”中增加新的板块内容,不论你是从事体育、教育还是商业活动,都能给大家提供更多的帮助。我们非常期待大家对新内容的反馈。

    你们中的不少人应该也知道我近期读了不少书。和许多人一样,我通过网络来浏览许多我所关注的事情,但仍旧保留了我的固有习惯——阅读书籍(我从来都坚信活到老学到老的),不论是出于商业目的还是仅仅为了休闲。

    在我近期的阅读清单中有一本书名叫《胜利者以及他们如何成功》(Winners and How They Succeed),是由阿拉斯戴尔·坎贝尔(Alastair Campbell)所著。坎贝尔曾担任英国前首相托尼·布莱尔(Tony Blair)的首席新闻发言人,在此书中他讲述了全球众多成功人士以及组织事例。我当然不是奥普拉(要给大家强制灌“鸡汤”),但如果你想要掌控自己的生活并取得成功,我还是强烈建议大家去阅读这本书。

    当谈及奥运会,尤其是夏季奥运会亦或者是我们所支持的运动员、运动队,获得奖牌的多少绝对是一个国家荣誉感强弱的重要因素。而获得的奖牌数同样是衡量一个国家体育项目以及体育文化发展情况的重要指标。

    当我深入阅读坎贝尔的书后我惊奇的发现偏居南半球的澳大利亚在过去的22届奥运会中,有13次奖牌榜位列前十,全部奖牌数更是居于第10位——这对一个只有2400万人口的国家来说相当的不容易。

    在国家政府和私人赞助的强大支持下,澳大利亚体育部门所建立起来的“集训式”运动员、教练员发展模式已经成为了全世界体育人的欣羡之物。2013年澳大利亚体育部所建立起来的“教练绩效中心”机制正瞄准使本国在2020年奥运会成为奖牌数前五位的目标,以下则是澳大利亚体育部的领导者们在选择国家队教练员时所重点考虑的因素:

1.       经验:国际级的持续高水平表现;专业并具有创造性的长期规划;与周边高水平环境因素的协作。

2.       知识:知道提高运动成绩的关键所在;懂得如何运用各种支持;最新的运动发展潮流。

3.       能力:交际力(交流、合作和影响力);领导力(改变、提升他人);商业/管理力(挖掘人才、设定战略目标、管理决策制定)

4.       个人态度:追求完美的激情;追求卓越的性格。

5.       个人风格:自信;自强;雄心;思辨;融入团队;坚韧奉献;激情热忱;正直忠诚;自律;乐于倾听;探索未知;适应性。

    比格公司与澳大利亚网球队已经交流合作多年,我们不仅邀请澳大利亚的高水平教练员在我们的“明日之星”青少年网球活动中扮演重要的角色,更把我们小学员们带到澳大利亚的珀斯、墨尔本等地,参与澳大利亚青少年网球锦标赛的争夺。我们可以负责任地说,澳大利亚对待他们的体育事业非常严肃认真!

    事实上澳大利亚体育部队教练员关键要素的界定已经超越了运动本身。而被选中的教练员也会用自己的努力付出,发自内心地为澳大利亚的体育事业奉献。


I thought it might be helpful to add a new feature to our newsletter that could be helpful to just about all of our readers whether you be in sports, education or business. We would be interested to hear your feedback.

Many of you know that I do lots of reading these days. Like most of you I read my favorite internet sites religiously but I still retain my old-fashion ways by reading as many books as I can for business purposes (our education never stops no matter how old we get) and entertainment.

Right now I have a few books cracked and one of them is a terrific book written by Alastair Campbell titled “Winners and How They Succeed”.  In this book Mr. Campbell, the former chief spokesman for former British leader Tony Blair, covers a wide range of successful people and organizations from across the globe. I’m no Oprah but I highly recommend this book if you care about making winning part of your life!

When it comes to the Olympic Games (especially the Summer Olympic Games), in addition to following our favorite athletes and teams, the overall medal count is a great source of pride for every country. Medals that are earned are also a great barometer to judge a country’s sports programs and overall sporting culture.

 As I move through Mr. Campbell’s volume of materials I was kind of astonished to find out that Australia, yes that sparsely-populated country down under, over the last 22 Olympic Games has finished in the top ten of nations in medals 13 times and ranks #10 all-time! Not bad for a country of a little more than 24 million residents.

With strong government and private sector support the Australian Institute of Sport has become the envy of most of the world with their centralized approach to developing coaches and athletes. In 2013 AIS launched the Centre for Performance Coaching & Leadership to support the AIS goal of becoming a “Top 5” medal winner by 2020. Below are the areas of focus that AIS leaders have made their mantra for selecting coaches to be selected for Team Australia coaching assignments.

1. EXPERIENCE: Sustained performance at international level; Devising & executing long-term plans; Working within high-performance environments.

2. KNOWLEDGE: Understanding key-levers for high-performance delivery; How to use support; Up to date with trends.

3. COMPETENCIES: Interpersonal (compelling communication, building partnerships, influence); Leadership (leading change & developing others); Business/Management (building talent; establishing strategic directions; operational decision-making).

4. PERSONAL ATTRIBUTES: Passion for results; Elite disposition.

5. PERSONAL STYLE: Self-belief; Competence-driven; Strong ambition for athletes; Clarity of thinking; Team player; Commitment & persistence; Passion & Enthusiasm; Honesty & Integrity; Disciplined; Listens; Curious; Adaptable.

BIG has been fortunate to have a working relationship with Tennis Australia for many years now. We have invited Australian coaches to play key roles in our junior tennis program “Swing for the Stars” and have sent our top “SFS” junior players top train in Perth & Melbourne as well as play in the Australian Junior Tennis Championships. We can tell you first hand that Australia takes their sports very seriously!

The key qualities that AIS identifies above transcend sports. Those aspiring to lead in any endeavor would be wise to take to heart the concepts that continue to work for AIS.
