Biography

James Kerr, the author of global best-seller Legacy, reveals the simple secrets of success behind some of the world's elite business, sports and military organisations. He explores what drives the best teams to extraordinary results; a relentless focus on excellence, a collective commitment to an 'uncommon cause', a high degree of autonomy, trust and individual initiative, clear, candid and compelling communication, an emphasis on individual accountability, integrity and genuine humility, underpinned by a climate in which 'leaders create leaders'.

In Legacy, James Kerr unpicks the secrets of the world's most successful sporting team, the All Blacks. The book has been described as 'seminal' by the Independent newspaper and 'unputdownable' by Bloomberg. The Daily Telegraph newspaper called it the ‘modern version of Vince Lombardi’s guides to coaching' and says 'for those searching for genuine keys to team culture, it is manna from heaven.'

As well as small, elite teams, Kerr addresses the specific challenges faced by larger, more diverse organisations today: including the impact that female leaders can have in previously male dominated environments, the challenges of engaging millennials, the shift from a transactional towards a transformative leadership style, personal leadership, ethics and integrity, marginal gains and incremental improvement, values and vision-setting, and resilience in adversity

James Kerr has advised US and UK Special Forces, Formula 1 teams, America's Cup crews, Premier League football managers, Olympic Performance Directors - as well as many corporations from Google to PayPal, Vodafone to Dyson, HSBC to Roche, Red Bull to Unilever, Shell to Boeing.
