Podcast: Episode 39 – Damian Hughes Pep Talk

Podcast

This week on the podcast we speak to organisational psychologist Damian Hughes about his new book “The Barcelona Way” and how top sports teams create winning cultures. Damian has been working with Scotland since Gregor Townsend took charge and although we don’t talk about Scotland specifically Damian provides a real insight into what it takes to create a successful team culture and lessons that can be learned from Barcelona.

Damian will be speaking about the book at Waterstones on Princes Street in Edinburgh on 5 September and you can find details of the even here. https://www.waterstones.com/events/damian-hughes-presents-the-barcelona-way/edinburgh-west-end

This week we also speak to Lana Skeldon from Watsonian’s Women and Owen Wetherhead from Berwick Rugby Club about their pre-seasons.

“Hands in the ruck” – What’s had it’s hands in your ruck? Let us know in the comments and we’ll pick out the best ones.

“Where’s Dougie Donnelly?” – It’s now mandatory to have a rumours section in a rugby podcast (apparently) so we’re looking for yours as well as news of any Scottish sporting media personalities you’ve spotted out and about. Have you seen Dougie Vipond down Tesco? Has your uncle’s brother’s aunt’s friend heard from someone down the pub that Jonny Gray is getting a new fence put in? Has your plumber been doing some work round Murrayfield and seen Richard Cockerill taking delivery of a new yoga mat? If so then let us know.
