Lessons from the England Football Team and the World Cup
Updated: Nov 13, 2019
Isn’t it great that the nation is disappointed with losing our in the World Cup semi-final with Croatia?
How did this happen?
What can we learn from the England team’s performance at the World Cup?
Gather the best people to help you – the support staff of coaches, physiotherapists, nutritionists … and maybe even a psychologist
Build good relationships and cohesion between you and your teammates and support staff
Create a plan for how you will improve weaknesses (penalties anyone?) and further improve strengths
Apply yourself, put the work in
Dare to go for it, to do what can make you successful, take some risks
Reflect and learn, building on what went well and considering changing what didn’t go well
