Successful change begins with a values-based, vision-led, purpose driven mindset. Here's what we discuss with author James Kerr in this show.   When people ask James what he does, how does he like to reply? How good are the All Blacks, what are the stats? How did James get inside the inner sanctum of The All Blacks? James explains true authentic leadership. The leadership qualities of former captain and great All Black Ritchie McCaw. Ritchie always kept a notebook. How did he use that book? The Corinthian Columns in the Crusaders dressing room, the super successful club team in NZ. Why is it so powerful? How have they been able to create an enduring brotherhood with the All Blacks team? Do the All Blacks channel a War God as kind of an identity they wear when they go to battle? When James hears the Haka, what memories does it bring back about his family? The tribal tipuna is intentionally made grotesque to always display humility. Is humility important in authentic leadership? James explains the vulnerability and softness amongst these hard men playing a hard sport. Dan Carter was known as the perfect 10. A wonderful story of humility. Debrief… what’s the All Blacks format to debrief a game? Sean Fitzpatrick former captain, after a loss would closed the door and asked the team to feel what it’s like to lose. James explains the philosophy of the second arrow? Red Head, Blue Head… can that be taught? James has 2 boys. What is the greatest legacy, he is looking to instil in his boys? The philosophy of Whakapapa, to plant trees you’ll never see. Leave the jersey in a better place.   LINKS   James Kerr book Legacy on Amazon https://amzn.to/2EyJVwk   The Mojo Radio Show on Patreon https://www.patreon.com/themojoradioshowpodcast   The Mojo Radio Show http://www.themojoradioshow.com   The Mojo Radio Show on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/TheMojoRadioShowPodcast/   The Mojo Radio Show on Twitter https://twitter.com/tmrspod   The Mojo Radio Show Answering Machine 08 7200 6656 08 7200 MOJO   The Mojo Radio Show copyright Gary Bertwistle & Darren Robertson   Products or companies we discuss are not paid endorsements.
