Football Field to Boardroom offers a unique methodology and framework to help your leaders manage their teams more effectively.

Our methodology can be applied to any business situation and our delegates are always impressed by the flexibility of the framework.

In order to assist you in your decision making process below is a list of the most frequently asked questions that our clients ask.

Why is football relevant to my business

Football is a global business. Our methodology is not about the game itself but how football is a business like any other and needs to be managed like any other business. The difference is that everything that happens within a club is very transparent and as such the leaders have to be more adept at dealing with situations that arise.

Q. Why are football coaches important to my learning

A. Football coaches are one of the best sources of learning the skill of people management. They manage within public scrutiny and are subject to a 360 degree review every three days. How do they set their strategy and manage their teams under this intense pressure is something that every leader can learn from.

Q. Why do you feel this will work for our company

A. All businesses succeed or fail based on the quality of their people. It is the ability of the leaders of an organization to not only select and retain the best talent but also to lead and empower them to thrive and give their best

to the company. Football provides and ideal analogy for studying how this works in a very practical and immediate way.

Using this analogy will allow you to look more critically at your people strategy and more closely align it with key corporate objective.

Q. Do I need to know about football to be able to get the most out of your programs

A. It is not necessary to understand anything about football to get the most out of our programs. Our training and consultancy is business focused and is focused around the business problems your company is facing today. The use of football is only used as an analogy to start meaningful debate and dialogue around leadership and team excellence.

Q. I don’t really like sport in general does this mean that the programs will not be relevant or understandable

A. No: What we are seeking to impart is the skill and leadership that the top managers and coaches use to inspire their best people. As business leaders this is also the task of everyone. Studying these managers and coaches teaches us some valuable lessons in team leadership and inspiration.

Q. How does your training include everyone

A. Our programs are facilitative in a workshop setting. Using our tools and business strategy game every attendee has the chance to participate and input into the discussion and takes ownership of the decisions made. As part of the sessions attendees gain valuable insight into how other leaders tackle problems and these learnings are translated into action plans that can be taken back into the workplace.

Q. What are the outcomes from the training

A. Each session is different as each company wants to achieve a different outcome. We can tailor make our methodology to suit the issue you are trying to resolve.

Q. Do I need to do any preparatory work before the training

A. Most of our clients are looking to resolve a particular issue or are looking to raise awareness of a topic. In this regard it is necessary for the owner of the programs internally to work with us to provide a relevant and bespoke program to deliver to the attendees.

Q. What services do you offer as a follow on

A. Football Field to Boardroom offer a range of additional services that our clients can take advantage of. In addition to our unique training experiences we offer keynote speeches, conference workshops and consulting programs. Many clients retain us post training to ensure that the action plans agreed upon during the sessions are adhered to as well as providing further guidance on how to maximize both leadership skills and team performance. We are happy to provide details on request.
