In this six part video series, we rewind to 2015 with All Blacks Coach, Steve Hansen as he discusses key lessons in leadership throughout his own coaching journey.
In our second of the Steve Hansen video series, we hear Steve discuss the value of openness and vulnerability within team environments. Steve discusses how coaches can model behaviours of vulnerability, use your eyes and ears as a leader to observe and engage with players to better understand them.
Steve shares a great example of a conversation with the legendary Richie McCaw on trust and the value of a genuine relationship between player and coach. We also hear the story of how Steve had a huge impact on Welsh rugby great, Gareth Thomas as he dealt with personal challenges off the field.
