What do all great leaders have have in common | Matt Beeton | TEDxOxbridge

Matt has been in leadership positions for the last 20 years and has been conducting research in to the ‘common denominator’ of great leaders over the past two years. Matt will share insight into a few of those most common denominators and use these findings to offer advice to the next generation of leaders. Leadership is there within us all, we just need to know how to harness it. Matt was educated and awarded at Coventry University, Cambridge University and Harvard Business School. However, his early career path began as a racing cyclist, where he represented a French racing team and also represented Great Britain. Starting on a graduate program at Rolls Royce Aerospace, at just 26 years old, Matt was offered a Director role within the Rolls-Royce Civil Aerospace business. His next challenge took him into the service industry as a Managing Director within Serco PLC and he has since held Chief Operating Officer position at National Express and Vix. Matt now owns APT Business Solutions and advises organisations such as Transport for the North, Transport for Greater Manchester and is an associate in GLG New York. He is about to publish a book on the importance of emotional and social intelligence in leadership. He is still a keen cyclist, a multi-rated pilot and arranges charity events for children charities such as BLISS and Clic Sargent.

Axel Zein promotes a new way we manage businesses today: think of business as a sport. In sports, the team is decisive; the team with the best players usually wins. And sports are fun. So what qualifies a manager to be the perfect coach for his team?

Who is doing the work in a normal company? It is not the CEO, not the managers but the engineers, the guys on the shop floor and the sales reps. They are the players on the ield. A manager is supposed to be their coach. But we are not educated to be coaches. During our careers we usually encounter a couple of really bad bosses, many mediocre managers and only a few outstanding ones.
