"If I can go from a skinny, introverted teenager who was told he wouldn't make it as a player to someone who played and managed his country then I'm clear that 'anything is possible'.
Gareth Southgate is England Manager of the senior men's team. He is also a former professional footballer. At the 2018 World Cup, Gareth's inspirational leadership and his 'anything is possible' mindset helped to bring the nation together, leading the Three Lions to the semi-finals and one of their best performances at a tournament in decades.
In this book he shares his approach 'which focuses on what we might achieve, instead of worrying about what might go wrong' with children and parents to help young people thrive and achieve their own dreams.
Gareth's humble, positive and compassionate style has earned him praise on and off the pitch. In 2018 Gareth received an OBE and was awarded Coach of the Year at the BBC Sports Personality of the Year Awards. And as a Goodwill Ambassador for The Prince's Trust, Gareth has supported the Trust's Future Leaders Programme, which helps give young people skills in leadership and teamwork.
