TGG Live: Modern Leadership
Written by Simon Austin — January 24, 2020
LEADING experts will be exploring Modern Leadership at TGG's next live event, at Emirates Old Trafford on Thursday April 23rd.
This one-day conference will give insights into how to effectively lead teams of both players and staff in the modern game, from Academy to senior level, from amateur to professional.
We will be looking at a range of issues, including how to:
- Develop a good culture
- Build resilience
- Empower players
- Foster creativity and experimentation
- Communicate effectively with 'Generation Z'
- Use technology to aid learning
- Understand the changing neurology of the adolescent brain
The cost of a ticket is £99 and includes a buffet lunch, refreshments and conference materials. There will be networking opportunities over drinks at the end.
Once again, we are delighted to welcome a very strong roster of speakers who will provide top-level insights:
DR PIPPA GRANGE
The former Head of People and Team Development at the Football Association describes herself as a “culture coach” who works on resilience and “the soul of the team”.
Pippa, who was performance psychologist for the England men’s team during the 2018 World Cup in Russia, will be explaining why sustained winning is underpinned by good culture and why quality relationships are at the heart of all successful teams.
BRIAN ASHTON MBE
The former England rugby coach now works as a coaching consultant for the likes of Manchester United, the Premier League and the International Rugby Academy of New Zealand.
His coaching philosophy is underpinned by a street games approach, which means "giving players a sense of engagement by encouraging experimentation and sharing decision-making and planning”.
Brian will be explaining how, as a coach, “you prepare the way, giving players the tools, resources and opportunities” to do this.
Arsenal’s Under-16 Head Coach is widely regarded as one of the most innovative coaches working in English Academy football.
The former MK Dons manager will explore how to foster creativity in young players, the balance between development and results, and explain the importance of video as a learning tool.
Webb has been Head of Football Operations since August 2019 and was formerly Technical Director at Swedish side Ostersunds.
With a background as an Academy coach at Crystal Palace and Tottenham, Webb has experience from the ground up. He will be talking about how to establish culture and values that run throughout a club.
DR LORRAINE O'MALLEY
As part of the City Football Loans Department, Lorraine provides performance psychology and wellbeing support at player, staff and club level.
Prior to this, she worked with Manchester City Women for two years, providing sport psychology support.
At the event, Lorraine will be giving insight into the player-centred approach and how modern leadership is co-created by both player and staff.
DR PERRY WALTERS
Perry is a coach and psychology consultant at Bristol City and a visiting fellow at Bristol University. He will be explaining the changes in neurology of the adolescent brain and how this knowledge should influence your coaching.
