“When you’re a driver of anything, I focus on what I can do, not what I can’t do; I’ll focus on what I have, not what I don’t have, and I’ll focus what I want not what I don’t want.”
Today’s episode is brought to you by our sponsors Football Manager, the global hit football simulation game, and was recorded shortly before Chelsea were awarded the WSL title.
Hayes spoke to co-hosts Matthew Stone, Leaders’ Senior Product Manager, and sports psychologist and consultant Michael Caulfield, whose clients include Brentford FC, Northampton Saints RFC and Hampshire CCC, and went into great depth about how her attitudes towards coaching, leadership and motherhood have changed during sports’ shutdown.
Also up for discussion were:
– The guilt she has felt during the lockdown about her ability to cope relatively well [11:30];
– Why coach education has long failed the women’s game in England [21:00];
– Chelsea’s work with UK charity Refuge, which supports women and children experiencing domestic abuse [32:00];
– The importance of mental health awareness in sport and beyond [35:00].
