The captain of any team, whether it be in business or in sport, has a specific role – after all, that person has a unique ambition,…….. is inspirational , has a special determination …….and mostly the skills to make his team as successful as possible, whatever that measure of success may be……

 

In a sporting environment, a group of individuals are brought together because of their love for the game, to achieve something that is greater than the individual is able to do on their own……

 

In most teams’, there are different personalities,…… from different backgrounds, who have their own way of thinking,…….. their own paths to take, how to play, how to conduct themselves …and what their measure of success is….

 

A successful captain is one who is able to generate that thing we that call “team spirit”…a ‘togetherness’, ………that translates into each individual opening themselves to their fellow team mates, …..and understanding and hearing each other’s way of thinking.

 

The successful captain is the one who can get the best out of his team, even though individually they may not be up to the required standard, ……..

 

The successful captain is one who is prepared to take some risks, ……..be prepared to lose some key moments in the match,…….. but only for that to enhance his chances of success…..

 

The successful captain should remain consistent in his thinking ……..and loyal to his team………..he must ‘walk the talk’…be fair and reasonable….. yet forever focused…and to ‘win with humility….and lose with dignity’……..

 

Mr Nelson Mandela passed away this week….on 5 December 2013.

….His incredible qualities as a human being, ….his foresight…his personal humility and dignity…….…., enabled all of us to have a chance to be here today …….he opened all of our eyes ……to the good…the bad….and the ugly…and above all he showed that we too …..can all be a part of  a TEAM…

 

“On the Couch” is a sport themed radio show …… but for the On The  Couch team on Heart 104.9fm  of Tapfuma ,Martin and Flapper   he was ….. our Captain!
