Tamsin Greenway

Our Great Coach on this episode is Tamsin Greenway.
Tamsin is a retired Netball player and now coach. She represented England on 67 occasions and along the way, was part of the team that won bronze medals at the 2010 Commonwealth Games and at the 2011 and 2015 Netball World Cups.
In the English Superleague, she has won 7 championships; 4 as a player, and three others as player-coach, a coach and a Team Director.
Tamsin now works as a commentator on Sky Sports and in 2020 she was appointed head coach of the Scottish national netball team.
Tamsin is a passionate coach, with a deep appreciation for the influence honesty can have on team dynamics and performance.
She is self-reflective, and committed to learning and developing, which is evidenced by her amazing career journey so far.
She is also determined, optimistic and a firm believer that, in her words, as a female coach your life doesn’t stop because you have children.
The keys parts of this discussion for me were,
That good team cultures are always evolving and changing so they are difficult to describe, but they are the places you want to be, even if you have had your worst day.
How, her experience as a playing coach taught her about the need to separate herself a little from the players to gain perspective, and then use this to help better manage the players and her own emotions.
And that winning is not always the end of the goal for people in the team, and you need to take the time to understand why the athletes are there, and what they want to achieve along the way.
This was a wonderful conversation, and I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
