G10 Global Pay Tribute To Barcelona’s Departing Great Leader – Pep Guardiola
April 27, 2012
After a hectic week that saw FC Barcelona lose to bitter rivals Real Madrid in the league and then be knocked out of the Champions League by Chelsea, their most successful manager of all time Pep Guardiola announced his decision to leave the club at the end of the current season. G10 Global discovered that according to The Telegraph, Pep Guardiola announced he would be standing down in order to “recharge his batteries” after claiming that he had been “worn down” during his four years of managing at the Nou Camp. George Kennedy, Managing Director at G10 Global believes they are losing “an incredible leader.”
Guardiola, who was in charge of Barcelona for four seasons won an impressive 13 trophies, including 3 league titles, 3 Spanish Super Cups and of course winning the Champions League twice amongst others. G10 Global understand that Guardiola made the announcement at an press conference in the Nou Camp, with some first team players in attendance giving him a standing ovation on what turned out to be a very emotional night for everyone involved with the Catalan club. Barcelona’s Club President Sandro Rosell, described Guardiola as Barcelona’s “greatest ever coach” and George Kennedy agrees that the Guardiola’s management skills are amongst the greatest he has ever seen in the world of football.
G10 Global specialise in Direct Sales & Marketing and place great emphasis on developing strong leadership qualities and encouraging entrepreneurial thinking. George Kennedy of G10 Global commented: “Nearly every success story has a great leader who is the driving force behind it. It takes a lot of time and effort to develop the right mentality but once you have it you can achieve great things. Pep Guardiola was a great student of the game, he gave his heart and soul to becoming the best in his field and when given his chance as a coach he worked harder than most behind the scenes. At G10 Global we try to do the same; we work harder than most people, we continue to learn from others and individually we try lead by example every day.”
G10 Global believe Barcelona will struggle to replace Guardiola, but agree that his assistant Tito Vilanova, who has been shadowing Guardiola for the last 4 years is the logical choice. George Kennedy encourages others at G10 Global to shadow him and assume extra responsibility in an attempt to help develop future business owners. He believes UK business owners have a responsibility to pass on vital business skills and teach the masses how to become successful. Kennedy concluded: “Despite the current recession, G10 Global has continued to thrive and we are on course for our most successful year to date. I believe the leadership qualities we develop here are paramount to that success.”← Back to Press Releases
