In this entertaining and informative book Clive Woodward describes the 2019 Rugby World Cup in narrative form, on the way revealing aspects of the game, the strengths of the players and the managers' strategies that made a huge difference to the results. However Leading to Victory is much more than a readable reflection on the tournament. Leading to Victory is Clive Woodward's collected philosophy and principles of leadership learned during a lifetime in elite environments, from the rugby field to the boardroom, improving individual and team performance to reach the pinnacle in sport and business. Using his experience of winning the World Cup, leading Team GB success at the Olympics and analysing first-hand the methods of managers at the Rugby World Cup in Japan, the enlightening book will provide 15 principles and educate readers on how to lead the culture of a winning team in any context, from Eddie Jones and Steve Hansen, to Owen Farrell and Kieran Read. Every individual position in rugby requires a unique set of skills, knowledge and expertise that collectively form a balanced team; the same is true in any successful business or organization. The book sets out the attributes necessary for each position on the rugby field and uses these defining traits to explain the relevant 'Teamship' principle embodied by that position. While any given company will not be formed of 15 people, in any great team all these skills need to be covered. In this way, each chapter offers a blend of strategies, insight and anecdote, using the highs and lows of the Rugby World Cup as a model. Ranging from simple but often misunderstood points about the game to complex questions on strategy Leading to Victory is not just a book to enjoy but one that will become a bible for achievers.
