Great teams often need an Affiliator

Great teams need a mix of personality styles – too many hard-driving “alpha” types can rock the boat off course.

That’s apparent from The Last Amateurs, by Mark de Rond, a fascinating account of Cambridge University’s winning boat in the Oxford-Cambridge Race of 2007.

The CxC Consutling Balanced Leadership Model highlights four broad personality styles: Activator, Affiliator, Analyser and Conceptualiser.

Most successful leaders tend to have two, and sometime as many as three of the styles on display. A rare few, who we refer to as “Fully Balanced,” have ready access to all four styles and are able to combine them and switch in and out of one or another as the situation requires.

U.S. Rowing Coxswain Mary Whipple: A Decade at the Very Top

Two Olympic Gold Medals; One Silver
mary_whipple_thrownThree Olympics in a row: One silver medal and two golds. A winning streak that culminated in London under the weight of the heaviest of expectations.

Mary Whipple was literally the driving force of the indomitable U.S. women’s eight rowing crew for over 10 years. As coxswain she was responsible for setting the pace, motivating the rowers and steering the boat, as well as taking the lead role in hundreds and hundreds of workout over the period. Working often as go-between the coach and the rowers, Mary was the ultimate middle manager in one of the most successful Olympic rowing boats of all time.

Now she’s educating a new generation of coxswains, leading specialized training camps throughout the year and running a website called 9thseat.com – a reference to her place at the stern of the boat.

Two-Time Olympic Gold Medallist, Rower Erin Cafaro, Now CrossFit Endurance Coach

Overcoming limits, optimal nutrition
erin_cafaro_rowing1 How many female athletes in the 21st century have won gold medals in two Olympics in a row? Hopefully somebody listening can figure that out but my semi educated guess is very few.

Erin Cafaro has, and she’s done it in the brutally taxing sport of rowing. She was a key member of the U.S. women’s heavyweight 8 that won gold in Beijing and in London. In addition to her Olympic triumphs, she also won gold medals at the 2009 World Championships in two different boats, the eight and the pair, an unprecedented achievement in the modern era of US Rowing. It’s even more remarkable if you consider Erin is quite a bit on the short side to be a world class rower. She’s talks all about it in this interview.

Erin is pretty sure she’s retired from Olympic rowing and is now focusing her energies on coaching CrossFit athletes on indoor rowing as well as building an innovative sports drink company called 3FU3L.
