LEADERSHIP & MANAGEMENT

JAMIE FULLARTON

Look after yourself, because if you’re going to lead people

you have to be in the best possible shape, physically and

mentally. Resilience is vital to any manager in any field and it’s

important to have the confidence to reach out.

EDWARD SMITH

Remind yourself that your abilities are not perfect and

your knowledge is flawed. We may sometimes infer causes

incorrectly, even when we have the correct information. We

are skewed, for example, to favour people who look how we

expect good performers to look.

BEN RYAN

Everything needs to be aligned, and we got to the point in the

team where, if we lost because of a missed pass, for example,

we could link it back to something that happened weeks or

months ago; performance was always linked to behaviour.

BRIGADIER GED SALZANO

People assume that leaders know what they’re doing and

that when times get hard they’ll come up with answers, and

leaders can get frustrated and anxious when they don’t

have those answers; they can feel vulnerable and lonely. As

a commander, you have to harden your heart, because you

cannot allow yourself to get too stressed.

NIGEL STOCKILL

Where’s your support team, who’s looking after you? Are you

doing everything you can to fireproof your life, so you don’t

just live longer, but also happy and well?

MATT HAMPSON

When I first returned home after my time in hospital, I

remember crying and saying, ‘What is there for me out there

now?’ But, there and then, I made a conscious decision that

I would be somebody and do something with my life. I would

focus on what I could do rather than what I couldn’t. I’d try to

use my brains rather than my brawn.

BRENDAN RODGERS

It can take a year to adjust to the intensity of managing a

club as big and iconic as Liverpool. There’s a huge expectancy

on you, but for me it was an incredible experience. I was very

aware that I was representing a huge global brand, so my

every word and action would be around the world in a matter

of seconds. You have to not think about that too much, and

focus on doing your best for the players and making the fans

feel good.

A
