Many have commented on the parallels between athletes and business professionals. And this isn’t surprising. Dedication, passion, fixation on a goal – their characteristics are clearly very aligned. So if these similarities are so widely accepted, then can we apply the same leadership lessons that we use in sports to business? Can leaders and managers of sports teams use their expertise to lead other professionals?

Catch up on episode 26 of Challenger Network News where we speak to Fran Millar, CEO of Belstaff and former CEO of Team INEOS, about the lessons she learnt from leading a professional sports team, and how these lessons can be applied to retail.
