THE #1 INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER'Belonging is a must-read for anyone interested in building a long term high-performing team.' - Stuart Lancaster'One of the wisest books about winning you'll ever read...Powerful lessons beautifully expressed.' - James KerrIn BELONGING Owen Eastwood reveals, for the first time, the ethos that has made him one of the most in-demand Performance Coaches in the world.
Drawing on his own Maori ancestry, Owen weaves together insights from homo sapiens' evolutionary story and our collective wisdom.
He shines a light on where these powerful ideas are applied around the world in high-performing settings encompassing sport, business, the arts and military. Whakapapa is a Maori idea which embodies our universal human need to belong.
It represents a powerful spiritual belief - that each of us is part of an unbroken and unbreakable chain of people who share a sacred identity.
Owen places this concept at the core of his methods to maximise a team's performance. Aspects of Owen's unique approach include: finding your identity story; defining a shared purpose; visioning future success; sharing ownership with others; understanding the 'silent dance' that plays out in groups; setting the conditions to unleash talent; and converting our diversity into a competitive advantage. Whakapapa. You belong here.
