Jane Woodlands-Thompson - WWO Podcast Episode 25
THE ART OF HIGH PERFORMANCE
If you’ve ever been involved in Australian netball or any female sport in South Australia, then you’ll be no stranger to this week’s guest, the relentless Jane Woodlands-Thompson.
Jane is the only dual premiership coach (now former) in the history of the ANZ Championship netball competition, has studied High Performance with the Australian Sports Commission and is the current Head of High Performance at Westminster School.
Jane’s specific essay question was:
“After more than ten years dealing with the most elite netballers, in arguably the best netballing nation in the world; a scholarship to study High Performance at the Sports Commission; and now, Head of High Performance at Westminster School, you have lived High Performance at all ends of the spectrum. What is your definition of a High Performer? And are they brought about by Nature or Nurture?”
Jane I spoke of her own experiences with family, her current role and the necessity for improved planning. We discussed stories of failure, recovery and triumph among her years with the Adelaide Thunderbirds. And best of all, I was given a straight to point, narrow view of what it takes to be a high performer – zero frills, just the way we like it.
Enjoy the show.
