Cameron Schwab became the youngest CEO ever in the Australian Football League when he joined Richmond in 1988. He spent 25 years of his career as a CEO of three different clubs, and there was one thing in common across the board: the clubs were all at their lowest ebb, uncompetitive on the field, and facing massive financial challenges. He now takes his deep experience in leadership in sport and business to mentoring CEOs and senior leaders to build high levels of cultural and strategic direction. When someone meets Cameron and asks what he does, how does he like to reply? What's the most critical question a corporate leader can ask themselves? Has Cameron learnt a process for the debrief after a business win or loss? It is not a competition of teams; it's a competition of systems. What is the system? The CEO should be the best person to read the play; how do we build that skill? How did Cameron go about creating a shared team ethos from the field to the office? How did Cameron deal with the dark times when sacked as a CEO of Melbourne? The power of vulnerability. Allan Jeans said to Cameron, "find something." What did Cameron find? What does Cameron write at the top of his journal each day? What would Cameron say to himself as a young CEO at Richmond back in 1988? One of Cameron's favourite quotes is by author David Whyte, "If your eyes are tired, the world looks tired also." What is the essential characteristic Cameron would look for in a recruit, and how would he establish they have it? Read an hour a day, write an hour a day, train an hour a day.
