Minter Dialogue with Lee Mears

Lee Mears is a hooker of repute. He played sixteen years as a professional rugby player, appearing in 263 matches for the Bath Rugby Club, earning 42 international caps representing England and playing for the prestigious British and Irish Lions. Today, Lee is an executive coach at The Preston Associates and co-founder of T-Cup, a technology that helps companies to measure and address well-being issues. In this conversation, we discuss the way rugby has been evolving, how does one define leadership in rugby and how it differs when you move from the club to national to the Lions team. We look at the importance of well-being, Lee’s life lessons, useful and transferable elements for business executives as well as the T-Cup initiative.
