Following the launch of our vodcast Workplay: Beyond the Game, we’re excited to release episode 2; and we guarantee this 10 minute watch or listen isn’t short on value.
While success on field is a key focus for our AFLW star hosts Bonnie Toogood and Lily Mithen; we know they’re also committed to developing their professional off field careers. On this episode of Workplay: Beyond the game, we’re joined by Coates People Business Partner Jackie Short. Jackie brings her wonderful energy to the vodcast and offers valuable career building advice our athletes can relate to.
“We know we learn when we’re thrown in the deep end. In your careers as professional athletes, you may be asked to do things that are out of your comfort zone; like be part of a leadership group, captain a team, change positions every once in a while.
“I think you can really use and harness that in your career after football.”
Jackie offers her practical planning strategies for life outside of football whilst also highlighting the immediate value our athletes can bring to an organisation through their transferrable skillsets.
