Don't Tell Me The Score: Life lessons from sport and beyond

Living your vision: Helen Richardson-Walsh


The power of creating and living a compelling vision of how you want to be in the world.

Helen Richardson Walsh scored one of the crucial penalty shootout goals as Team GB won a historic gold medal at the 2016 Rio Olympics.

The team's journey to the top of their sport was a bumpy one; after winning bronze at London 2012 they finished 11th at the 2014 World Cup prompting a radical rethink.

They held a no-holds barred clear-the-air team meeting, after which they set out a new vision and set of values, which enabled them to go on and create history 2 years later in Rio.

In this episode, Helen - now performance psychologist at Tottenham Hotspur women - shares wisdom on values, vulnerability, authenticity - and about being the difference you want to see in the world. She also shares her experience of the team's now-famous Thinking Thursday, and the importance of tough conversations.

If you could leave a rating - ideally 5 stars - and a kind review where possible, we would be very grateful - and will pay it forward!

Thanks. @simonmundie
