Change: Lessons from a Sporting Great

Steve Smith

5 July 2023

I wanted to share my thoughts on a topic that’s really important to lots of our clients and a topic that weaves its way through all of our leadership programmes – and it probably will till the end of time, and that’s ‘change’. It’s something that’s really important, because we all have to face it at some stage, and we all have to deal with it at some stage in our careers. Before I got involved in learning and development, I was an international high jumper, and if it wasn’t for somebody who was prepared to think really differently about changing things, then I probably wouldn’t be here at all today.
