In his 36 years at Wigan as player and coach, Shaun Wane has led from the front and achived great success at the club. I met Shaun at the 2018 Magic Weekend in the dressing room with his team after the game and was impressed by his leadership qualities and the high regard he was held in by his players. He was an inspirational, motivating and great communicator, all qualities that are required to be a great coach and leader.

I have heard Shaun speak many times in the last decade.
I like to watch people's faces around the room as he speaks. All are completely absorbed in the messages that he is delivering.
He is clear, firm and direct. Everybody is aware of their roles and the expectations upon them.

I've known and watched Shaun work for a number of years now. I've seen first hand his ability to not only motivate and coach a team, but equally man manage individual players and staff members to a level that goes beyond the job desciption in order to get the best out of everyone on a daily basis. I've watched a man live and breath every minute of every season, on and off the pitch, good and bad.
This is what makes Shaun a truly unique manager and not just in his own sporting field.
Along with that, there's a list of accolades and trophies that puts him in a very small group with the greatest managers of any sport.

I heard Shaun speak recently and he was outstanding. His talk on Creating a Winning Culture was powerful, passionate and contained loads of leadership lessons for anyone leading a team or coaching others.
I’ve listened to a lot of people talk over the years, but for me personally, Shaun’s was easily one of the best and most impactful I've ever heard.

People will be familiar with Shaun Wane as a famous Rugby Coach but what about as a motivational speaker to nurses and doctors? Shaun came to Wigan Hospital to give a talk about his life and learning. Our lecture theatre has never been fuller. He spoke eloquently, with humour and with great insight into motivation and team work. Our audience of clinicians and managers lapped up every minute of it. I can thoroughly recommend him to any organisation that wants to inspire its staff.

The parallels between sport and business are well known, but Shaun's experience and insight takes it to a new level. His ability to dissect key skills such as leadership, team-building, motivating and goal-setting, and translate them into the real world business environment is best in class. I've run courses with Arctic explorers, first grade mountaineers and round the world yachtsmen, but none can match Shaun for the unique understanding of what makes soemone tick.
