The Spanish victory last Sunday is a great example of the importance of good leadership and the teamwork. As Santiago Iniguez, the Dean of IE Business School, stated in DeansTalk, Vicente del Bosque, the team’s coach remained calm and collected throughout the tournament and demonstrated to the world the benefits of collaborative leadership. He prioritized strategy over emotions, displayed sportsmanship with his respectful attitude towards other teams and was modest at all times passing on praise to his team.

The team also did their coach proud – they performed exceptionally and by working together won the World Cup. Spain’s King, Juan Carlos, summed it up when he said the “team is an example of sportsmanship, nobility and team work”.

 IE students along with the rest of the world should draw lessons from such fine examples of leadership and teamwork.

    Personally I was delighted with the whole team and excellence of Spanish football! I have been a devoted fan of Spanish National Football Team since 2008 when Furia Rojas had demonstrated a mastery and an organized teamwork on a high-level in Euro-2008.

    Now I’m more than happy that World Cup has come to Spain!

    Good job for all!!!

    Viva Espana!

    It’s a refreshing example. We often think about leadership in business or politics, but we can find leaders in – probably – all actvities: arts, entretaiment, academics, sports.
    Using this kind of examples helps others to understand better how a leader works, that’s why I would love to read more about Del Bosque’s leadership “techiniques” with the team, how did he improve teamwork, how did he manage the ego of some of the players; more practical examples. Hope that the author go deeper in the subject.
