ADAPT were delighted to welcome back close friends and supporters of the business Judy Murray and Leon Smith for our first Human Performance Forum of 2020.
Judy and Leon talked us through some of the key learnings they’ve gleaned from their illustrious careers to date. Having both coached and led teams at the highest possible level in the world of tennis and faced all the challenges that come with intense public and media scrutiny, they shared insights into how to lead a world-class team, how to get the best out of each individual in a team and how to create high-performance cultures.
Leon spoke to our guests about his Davis Cup journey – from being announced as Davis Cup Captain in 2010 where he was selected over a highly favoured, and in some minds, better credentialed option, to getting on with the job, ignoring the detractors and leading the Great British team to victory in 2015. Leon spoke about what it takes to lead a new team, how to build trust and rapport within a team and how to help your team prepare to perform at their best.
Judy provided an account of some of the challenges she faced launching the careers of her two sons Jamie and Andy Murray, the importance of surrounding yourself with good people from the get go and why she is going back to the grassroots in the work she is doing with her foundation www.judymurrayfoundation.com
