Ep 041: Rasmus Ankersen with Jeff Lockyer
One reason we love to watch sports is because of the unique leadership lessons that play out on and off the field. In this episode, recorded at the 2018 GLS, Rasmus Ankersen shares his experience from the world of sports, as the chairman of two successful football clubs–one in Denmark and one in England. Ankersen talks to Jeff Lockyer about the importance of questioning success as well as failure. He also shares take-aways from his book The Gold Mine Effect which explores the reasons why certain coaches, clubs and countries produce disproportionate numbers of professional and Olympic athletes.
