Nick Maxwell Collingwood Premiership captain

NICK MAXWELL is the epitome of hard work, persistence & ‘team’. After years of knock backs, he became one of the AFL’s greatest success stories, going from the rookie list to an AFL Premiership Captain, leading the Collingwood Football Club to a drought breaking flag in 2010.

Maxwell is recognised for his excellent leadership capabilities, becoming a successful Leadership coach with the Melbourne Storm, & advisor to Leaders in business.

“Make no mistake about it, the key to being a great leader & to building a great team is relationships. Investing in people & building trust & belief is the key.

While many people want a quick fix, this is not possible. But fast tracking the development of your emerging and future leaders certainly is.”

“I don’t think it is overstating things to say that Maxy redefined what it means to be a leader in the AFL in the 21st century.

He was a wonderful captain and leader, a shrewd tactician and teak tough. Above all, though, he was a reminder of what is possible to achieve in football, and in life.”
