Thriving Teams with Jill McIntosh

Thriving teams will Jill McIntosh

This week my co-host, Professor Eric Knight and I continue our exploration of Thriving Teams with the Great Coach Jill McIntosh

Jill McIntosh is a former Australian National netball player and team coach. As a player she won the 1983 World Championship and then coached the national team to the championship in 1995 and 1999, as well as gold medals at the 1998 and 2002 Commonwealth Games.

She has also coached the National teams of Singapore, Northern Ireland and Jamaica. And is presently the coach of the Cardiff Dragons in the UK Super League.

In 2020 she was inducted into the Sport Australia Hall of Fame

The key highlights from the interview are:

  • How many coaches are good at knowing what they want, but they fall down when it comes to creating the “How” of how they will achieve it.
  • The way she uses her rule of excellence to guide all the teams activities.
  • The importance of getting in sync as a team, and they she goes about moulding teams to achieve this.
