Publisher's Summary

In his entertaining and informative new book, Sir Clive Woodward analyses the events of the 2019 Rugby World Cup, offering his unique perspective on the performance of players and coaches, from Owen Farrell and Kieran Read to Eddie Jones and Steve Hansen.  

How to Win: Talent Alone Is Not Enough is much more than the story of a tournament, however. It is the distillation of a philosophy of leadership developed during a lifetime in high-performance environments, from the rugby field to the boardroom. Tapping in to his experience of winning the 2003 World Cup, being a part of the leadership team that delivered Olympic Success in 2012 and lessons drawn from Japan 2019, the author delivers a go-to manual in how to improve both individual and team performance in order to reach the pinnacle in sport and in business.  

Every individual position in rugby requires a unique set of skills, knowledge and expertise that collectively form a balanced team; the same is true in any successful business or organisation. From 1 to 15, the former England and British and Irish Lions coach identifies the key attributes and uses these defining traits to explain his collaborative 'Teamship' leadership style. 

With a fascinating blend of analysis, insight and anecdote, and the highs and lows of a memorable Rugby World Cup as the setting, Clive reveals how to lead the culture of a winning team - in any context.  

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Culture at its best

Easily the best book I've read on Team
-ship and culture. Clearly explained and well articulated. Clive gives an insight to his Team-ship principles and core values that underpin success in an organisation.

Good. Insightful.

I found it an easy listen. I love rugby so it helped me understand the way it is run professionally and also kept my attention. Clive's insights into what went wrong for Ireland in 2019 RWC were pretty useful as I had been searching for answers. Overall 8.5/10. A good book which has enough in between your regular business orientated books for self improvement.

Clumsily Put Together

This book has some great lessons and great stories.
But it has poor chapter headings named after rugby player positions. While C.W is a rugby legend, the names don't work, it doesn't even make sense. Not having these chapter heading would make for better reference.
I think in hard copy this book would be much better. It is also mainly about England in the world cup, this is kind of littered throughout the book but could have been dealt with in one or two comprehensive chapters;England 2003 England 2019.
The great ideas in the book and there are many which I will use, just get lost in "easy out" rugby speak.

For all the talk of innovation this book doesn't go for it, it is not sure what it is. If he had have went for a pure leadership book it would have been great. If he had have gone for a rugby book, it would have been OK. But he went for both, took the easy option and it just doesn't work, at least for Audio.

Clive Woodward Masterclass

I came here from the High Performance Podcast he did and was immediately taken in. his views on "taking business into the sporting game" is so eye opening - it deserves a second listen.

I did think it was going to be a struggle, as Sir Clive himself doesn't make a good narrator - but when the main guy kicks in, it's a very "beautiful" listen.
