Leading Teams has had a relationship with the Adelaide Crows (both AFL and AFLW) since 2004.
Recently the team at the Crows and Footyplus caught up with Daniel Healy, our facilitator currently working with the men’s team.
Here is an excerpt from their discussion:
“I still believe that (Leading Teams) was strongly influential with the run of premierships (the club) had,” Healy told FootyPlus.
“The vulnerability to say ‘I stuffed up’ and “we didn’t get that right’, that’s the important bit.
“If a coach or a leader can say that, it means I walk away as a follower and say maybe I should look at my own performances.”
Crows coach Don Pyke has thrown his support behind the practice.
“The first people to get feedback were myself and the captains,” Pyke said.
“We model the behaviour that’s required in terms of what’s doing well, what I need to keep doing, what I can start doing and what I need to stop doing.
“Leading Teams really allows them to build that into a foundation to be the best they can be as an Adelaide Crow.”
