“Pressure can be your friend or your foe. We’ve done a lot of work on understanding that it becomes your friend because you know that whenever you feel it you are in that space where great things happen, not good things or average things but great things. We want them to have the attitude to say ‘bring it on’ and we don’t want them to turn away from it. We want them to walk towards it because they knew that’s got some specialness attached to it.
He further added,
“We think being vulnerable is a quality that is extremely valued in this environment. If you don’t know how to do something or you’re not sure what to do or how to do it then you ask someone. It’s not a weakness it’s absolute strength. “In business and in sport complacency is a curse. It’s a curse because it sneaks up on you because you get people who have been there for a long period of time and they think ‘well I’ve been here ten years, what have you got for me?’ This whole sense of entitlement reigns.”
