Lessons With Lancaster: Developing Your Credibility as a Leader

Leinster Senior Coach Stuart Lancaster says every time you avoid doing a right you fuel the habit of doing a wrong.

“There’s lots of presentations and thoughts that I’m going to give but if there was a rank of order of importance I’d put this one at the top.”

Stuart Lancaster is talking about developing your credibility as a leader in the latest edition of his Lessons With Lancaster series here at the Leaders Performance Institute.

He asks: “Can you become a leader if you’ve started at a low level and worked your way up through the pathway?”

The answer is a resounding ‘yes’ as Lancaster himself can testify. He may be a European and Pro 14 champion as a Senior Coach with Leinster and may have guided his native England into a Rugby World Cup as Head Coach, but Lancaster defied convention in progressing from a teaching background to upper echelons of rugby union.

“It wasn’t easy and it took a long time but I’d like to share with you how I did it and – more importantly – how you can improve your credibility as a leader.”
