Legacy of the Lions - Lessons in Leadership from the British & Irish Lions
Peter Burns, Gavin Hastings
Legacy of the Lions explores leadership lessons learned in one of the most challenging environments in the sporting world: touring with the British & Irish Lions. Drawing on the author’s own experiences – and those of other tourists and managers – Gavin Hastings examines what lessons can be transferred from this elite, pressurized environment to other aspects of business and life. Based on interviews with an array of past and present greats of the game – including Sam Warburton, Warren Gatland, Brian O’Driscoll, Martin Johnson, Finlay Calder, Gareth Edwards and Willie John McBride, plus many others – Legacy of the Lions discovers what leadership lessons have been learned in one of the most pressurized environments in world sport – and how they can be made to work for you.
