Leadership approach of Brian Clough…the replanting.

Leadership approach of Brian Clough…the replanting.

Although i attempt to emulate the gardener in leadership. I am inspired by Brian Cloughs genius as a football manager i love the story of Kenny Burns. The battling feisty centre forward of Birmingham city that ‘Mr Clough’ brought to Nottingham Forest. He then played him completely out of the position that he had been playing his entire professional career. ‘You think your a centre forward…but you are a central defender.’ He then paired him up with Larry Lloyd and one of the most effective defence partnerships in english football was created. To mix the metaphor…He was transplanted into a part of the garden that he could really thrive and produce. Then the harvest was collected in the form of European cup success.
