I was at the All Ireland Hurling final replay game yesterday. It was a great game, all the better because Clare won, but both teams gave their all. It was end to end, nail biting stuff. I could ramble on with the cliches till the cows come home. But a few things stood out for me.
1. The importance of a good team
2. The importance of having the right people in the right places.
At ActionCOACH we speak of the 6 Keys to a Winning team
- Good Leadership
- Common Goal
- Rules of the Game
- Action Plan
- Support Risk Taking
- 100% Inclusion
If we assessed either team against any of these 6 keys, they would score top marks on all.
If and when we assess businesses against any of these 6 keys, there are so many gaps, flaws, missing pieces.
Is it not obvious that we should embrace these even more and really achieve our potential.

About the author, Derek O'Dwyer
Hi I’m Derek O’Dwyer. I have been an ActionCOACH for the last 18 years. I live in Clare and work with businesses around Ireland to take their business to the next level. I am passionate about business and providing help and advice. In the past 18 years I have worked with over 400 business owners helping them and their business. I adapt my coaching depending on what you and your business need. I find that each coaching relationship is different but as long as we understand that we have a common objective with timescales, positive things happen quickly. I am a firm believer i the concept of “what you can measure you can manage” and “what you measure you can improve”. Key performance indicators and accountability form the bedrock of my coaching platforms. If making more money from your business, working less hours in your business and having a great team running your business then it’s worth having a discussion with me. If you are willing to implement changes I will be there to help every step of the way. In terms of personal accolades and recognition I have been awarded ActionCOACH of the year in Ireland every year for the last ten years In 2019 I was inducted into the ActionCOACH Global Hall Of Fame I was global Rookie Coach of The Year in 2002 having achieved remarkable success as the first ActionCOACH in Europe.
