Stadiums to Boardrooms

As it often happens, in Sport as in Business, goals are set, plans are made and near perfect execution follows - all towards the ascent of a visible peak. Once the final step is taken, the flag planted triumphantly, the moment captured for posterity, there is nothingness, only the inevitable descent. Having attained a High Performance Goal, teams lose Purpose, businesses stagnate, superstars retire, employees move on.  

 

In the Stadiums to Boardrooms series we work with our clients on a path that ensures Sustainable High Performance.  The path breaking framework developed and delivered by Anindya Dutta blends his 28 years of Corporate Leadership experience in leading High Performance teams with his deep knowledge and insights into the workings of Elite Sports Teams and Highly Successful Businesses.   

 

The lessons that emerge from the framework are presented in a series of Workshops that are developed and delivered Bespoke for each of our clients. The workshops are carefully curated in response to your specific needs on the High Performance journey for Maximum Impact on your teams.
