Tuchel: Learning lessons from teachers

Changing how you are as a coach is key to his role believes the German, as is maintaining a good connection with all the players, and in order to do that he makes sure he listens when there is the chance to discuss leadership with others.

‘Sometimes it was intuition and sometimes it was planned but I don’t follow a guidance, I don’t follow a leadership book or something else,’ Tuchel said of his management decisions.

‘When there is time I talk a lot to people who are in leadership roles and in different roles, and I try to learn every day.

‘I talk to unknown persons, teachers of classes, the person who runs the school of my daughters, people who sell stuff. This can be a half-an-hour talk.

‘It is not important that you only talk to the biggest names out there in the world. It is about leadership from people and that can include teachers and anybody else who is in responsibility for people and for groups, and there you can get inspired.
