The Wales Nuclear Forum Steering Group enjoyed a break during last week’s meeting to meet with former Welsh Cricketer, Robert Croft.
Robert Croft MBE has previously played international cricket for England and captained the Glamorgan cricket team from 2003 to 2006. He was appointed Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in the 2013 New Year Honours for services to cricket.
Croft retried from first class cricket at the end of the 2012 season and became the head coach of the Glamorgan cricket team in 2016.
Having experienced first-hand the overwhelming pressures faced whilst being in leadership positions, Robert gave an insightful talk to WNF’s Steering Group members on the importance of being able to “switch off” from your work and preserving a healthy work-life balance.
Robert’s perspective prompted the group to reflect on their own experiences in leadership positions. The group and Robert engaged with each other about the effects of work related pressures may have on people. All members of the group left the meeting reflecting on the importance of being able to manage pressure and balancing work life with down time.
