My guest on this episode of the Mann on a Mission podcast is John Steele.

John has had a truly amazing career. Ex army officer, professional rugby player, head coach of Northampton Saints rugby, CEO of the Rugby Football Union, CEO of UK Sport where he led the transformation of team GB medals success in both Beijing and the London Olympics and now Executive Director of Sport at Loughborough University.

John really knows how to get the best out of people. How to create the impact that will 'make the boat go faster' for elite performance under pressure.

I've had the pleasure of working closely with John and the team at Loughborough, where they continue to build a 'sporting excellence 'eco system' that is truly world leading.

We discuss John's thoughts on leadership, the challenges he has faced both personally and professionally and much more.

John Steele - Executive Director of Sport, Loughborough University
