Your K2
1. Can you tell us what is your current K2? We would like you to tell us about your objective and the what motivates you to face it.
!

! !

From Streets to Stadiums a Long Term Sport Development Plan is my current K2. My vision is to create a pre-eminent educational community of globally minded learners and leaders through sport. My objective is to challenge and inspire athletes to love learning and to shape a better world.
! ! !

2. Reflection how you have prepared this challenge, what steps you have taken and what would make you abandon it.
! ! Group forums encouraged stakeholders to identify a focus. We co-construct LTAD plans through 4 corners of sport. Lack of coach development and resources at all stages of age and ability would inhibit the sustainability of this project. !

Leadership Style
3. We are all know alls and learners to a certain extent. What currently predominates in you? Do you think that you are an objective person? Do you admit that your opinions are only opinions? Try to describe a situation that gives us an example of this.
!

My experience and depth of knowledge has provided a balance between knowing and learning. This resonates with current colleagues who are international educators in sport. Best practice is often evaluated amongst leaders and I am learning to consider the opinions of others as well as reflect upon my own.
!

4. Do you tend to see yourself as a protagonist or a victim of circumstance? Think of a recent situation?
!

!
I am a protagonist leading a group of coaches and international teachers to implement a sport development initiative. I instigated the implementation of local and national leagues amongst our new global education city through partnerships and liaison with local businesses.

Team
7. In your K2, do you prefer to climb as part of a team or alone? Why?
I am an authentic leader working as part of a team. Utilizing strengths of others to achieve a collective goal is important because it provides autonomy.
