Thanks to Kevin Nicholson, former manager of Torquay United FC who gave a fascinating insight to the challenges of managing a football team focusing particularly on the similarities between motivating team members in the sporting environment and in the business world.
As Kevin said; “Actions not words are more important in life. People need to train hard, work hard for each other. Live one day at a time, help yourself, help team mates, enjoy the day, When adversity hits, it is critical to accept responsibility and ‘look in the mirror and not out of the window’”.
We all wish Torquay United well this season – and encourage everyone to go the matches and support your local team.
