unable to forge a meaningful career in the
game and switched to management

minds eye

Percolate the Vision

Visionary Leader
Even in defeat he
refuses to let his team
feel like a loser
Its no fluke that after
a defeat, Inter gets
straight back on its
feet. Thats all thanks
to Mourinho, Diego

I love players who love to win.

They not only win in 90 minutes,
but every day, every training
session, in every moment of
their lives

Love your People

Mourinho was a coach, friend and secure

base to all his players wherever he went

Interactive Leader

There was such a spirit of camaraderie

in the Chelsea dressing room

He loved his players and his fans

You must create a positive atmosphere and make

everyone feel part of the group. In this club, if you
go to the barrier, the man at the door feels part of
the group and success

Cycle of Bonding

Motivate and Inspire

His training sessions
are spectacular. They
have great intensity
but we dont feel tired
because we are
extremely motivated.
