    Thinking Sports Leadership 4.0

  • The State of Play (Public)

    The State of Play is for ‘second tier’ leaders. ‘Second-tier’ refers to leaders who go beyond conventional and traditional perspectives and thinking, to embrace sports business and industry 4.0 - the fourth industrial revolution.

    The fourth industrial revolution is characterised by complexity, change and problems, and these are the three specific areas where Grey Matter helps prepare/shift sports leadership mindset to be effective, more specifically,

    1. Making Strategic Complexity Clear.
    2. Leading/Managing through Change.
    3. Building Problem Solving Capacity/Capability.

    The State of Play takes an innovative approach that shapes and throws new light on subjects, often answered by conventional and traditional perspectives. We use the scientific framework of Sports Leadership Mindsets and the principles of change and problem solving to deliver unusual depth of insight on issues that are reshaping the global leadership, such as performance, management, race, directing, problem solving, change, finance, strategy and socio-cultural.


    Moreover our insight is practice based and actionable, that shows you how to approach and solve complexity, change and problems.
