110: Ryan King on operating in complexity

This week’s guest is Ryan King.

Ryan is a strength and conditioning coach by trade. He has a background working at the EIS and England FA. In addition to his conditioning work Ryan has led numerous teams, for example managing the women’s pathway team, the performance support team and the innovation work at the FA. Ryan is now a performance strategist at Kitman labs and a performance consultant for his own business Blended Intelligence.

But beyond the job titles is the way Ryan works which is highly considered, thoughtful and holistic. When I say holistic I mean he fully respects the climate, environment, the timing as well as the problem on the table. In this discussion we explore how to work in simple and complex situations, creating systems but being flexible and measuring our impact. But central to this is harnessing people and their full capability to create performance. I don’t think I will ever tire of speaking to Ryan he is one of these people who always brings fresh insight and perspective.
