What do we think we are really good at?

What have we got to improve?

What do we really need help with?

What are our competitors doing better than us?

What could we learn from other sports WCPs?

Four discrete perspectives on M2012:

1. Recognising, mobilising and rewarding exceptional

People operating at the coalface

2. Performance profiling of WCPs – the systematic

search for excellence through planning, problemsolving

and innovation at the Elements level

3. A simple, precise and productive reporting and

performance management process for both NGBs and

UKS

4. A window into our world – the interface between our

investment strategy and Gov’t, Media and the public.

Vision & Strategy

03 Strategy into Action Climate Dimension

How well is your WCP strategy translating into action?

• Your WCP strategy drives everything that you do

• The clarity of your mission generates real buy-in from athletes,

staff, service providers and other stakeholders

• A culture of ‘aim-plan-do-review’ enables you to modify plans so

that they are not followed blindly

• Plans, and changes to them, are communicated effectively in all

directions

• Membership and selection policies are applied fairly and

consistently

The mood in the camp

09 Team Environment and Identity Climate Dimension

Does your WCP have an identity and ways of working that

reflect a collective desire to achieve excellence?

• Your WCP has a strong sense of identity underscored by norms and

values that foster commitment and teamship

• Wherever your WCP operates (office, training venues, training

camps, competitions) it creates a dynamic, supportive environment

conducive to the pursuit of excellence

• Positive team dynamics are a vital component of your WCP and key

staff take responsibility to create and maintain it

• The visibility of all the above means you are admired by international

opponents (and perhaps feared)

The Dreams I have pursued….

• Be a great bike racer

• To really understand why some riders go faster

and win more than me!

• To help GB cyclists be the best in the world

• Build a world-class elite sport system in the UK

The pursuit of

excellence is

often about leaps

of faith….

……and not allowing

your ambition to be

limited by your

surroundings

Its always a bumpy ride….


You have to be constantly adapting….

• Learn quickly, from wins as well as mistakes

and losses

• Question yourself as well as others

• Constantly battle with Dogma

• Emotionally detach from processes you created

that no longer perform!

3. Build in time to step back and reflect

4.

Uncertainty….

Fear of failure….

Anxiety…..

…..Will be your constant companions in

the pursuit to excellence. They create

the level of drive necessary for

excellence.

5.

You need to be fascinated by the process

required to pursue your goals, not just the

possible outcome.

Successful pursuit of excellence…the

5 crunch questions?

• Are you pursuing your dream, and can you still see clearly

your vision of success?

• Is your ambition being restricted by the environment you

are in?

• Do you have enough time to regularly reflect?

• Are you managing you fears and anxieties effectively?

• Are you still fascinated (but not obsessed) by some of the

day-to-day processes required to pursue your dream?
