What elite team sport can teach us about workplace culture

Elite team sports are high-pressure environments.

And the difference between success and failure is often razor-thin.

Just like the business world, how well a team works together is more important than individual brilliance. That’s why culture plays a huge role.

In this one-time-only session, Ben Ikin, Australian sporting legend and current Head of Football at the Brisbane Broncos NRL team, will join us to share what he’s learnt about building winning cultures on the field, and in the workplace.

In this engaging and informative session, we’ll reveal:

  • The essential elements to building a high-performance culture.
  • Lessons learnt from working with some of the best people leaders in Australian sport.
  • How to work effectively under the spotlight.
  • Critical culture traps to avoid.
  • Top tips to understand and improve culture in your workplace.

Ben shares his own experiences, war stories and more in a session designed to provide compelling strategies you can use in your own business straight away.
