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。
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.
