Podcast #15 – Teamworking lessons from the Falklands War to the Boardroom

SheepDip podcast logo

This episode is jam-packed with thought-provoking tips about teamwork from environments as varied as the Navy, the music scene and corporate boardrooms.

In the third of our conversations with inspirational minds in the Learning and Development world, Paul Warriner – aka The Recognition Coach – shares a few of the many lessons he’s learned throughout his life and career from the battlefield at sea to that of the business world.

Top tips include:
– set an intention for your working day and enjoy the recognition (just like a shepherd and his dog as you will hear)
– leave aside your ego – there’s no place for it if teamwork is to flourish (anyone know the Fleetwood Mac story?)
– practise as a team – find all the ways that something can’t work until the task can be done without thinking and through absolute trust of everyone’s role (hear how this came to fruition first hand for Paul in the Falklands war)

We challenge you not to take away at least one actionable team working lesson from this episode…

Enjoy – and thank ewe for listening 🙂
