Leadership lessons from the middle

by Robin on June 2, 2015

As a cricket fan I have been watching the recent travails surrounding the England cricket team with great interest.  There’s lots of discussion at the moment about the leadership capabilities of the England cricket captain Alistair Cook.  This is particularly in the light of his apparently more ‘natural’ opponent Brendon McCullum the New Zealand captain.

I have designed and delivered enough leadership development programmes to be a bit tired of the ‘leaders are born not made’ argument which colours these discussions in the world of cricket punditry.  You can read why I think leaders are made in my most recent blog on Training Zone.
