Carlo Ancelotti on Leadership and Managing Outrageous Talent

Issue Overview

For our cover feature we’ve gone to the very top of world sport and the Manager of Real Madrid – Carlo Ancelotti, who’s managed AC Milan, Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid within the space of five years. After speaking at our London Leaders in Performance conference in October, Carlo took time out from coaching Ronaldo, Bale et al to let us dig a little deeper into his coaching and leadership lessons.

Elsewhere in the journal you can read a revealing interview with Mike Gervais, the High Performance psychologist who’s just coached the Seattle Seahawks to Super Bowl success and helped Felix Baumgartner complete the Red Bull Stratos space dive. Also in this edition, there are interviews with the Royal College of Music’s Professor of Conducting, Peter Stark, the mastermind behind Jess Ennis- Hill’s gold medal at the London 2012 Games, Toni Minichiello, and British Cycling’s mind coach Dr Steve Peters. We’ve also included an expert’s column on communication, the bedrock of high performance, and hand-picked 10 insights from the recent P8 Sports Performance Summit in New York to share.
