Building a Winning Lifestyle Both for Yourself and for the Teams that You Play On

Ralph is also involved in the work the World Economic Forum is conducting on New Models of Leadership.

In this very personal, touching and funny speech, Ralph distilled his leadership principles structured around 5 axis. He expanded on the role of a team leader and demonstrated how being authentic, reflective and facing challenges or issues has allowed him to be a successful coach beyond his teams’ sporting results.

The speech was followed by a lively discussion and questions from participants who confirmed the transferability of the model into the corporate environment, The event concluded on a get-to-know each other lunch.
