Belonging: The Ancient Code of Togetherness by Owen Eastwood

​Join former South African cricketer, JP Duminy in conversation with leading Performance Coach, Owen Eastwood on his new book, Belonging: The Ancient Code of Togetherness - a book that empowers readers to unlock the highest levels of togetherness and performance.

Whakapapa. You belong here.

Whakapapa is a Maori word which embodies our universal human need to belong. It represents a powerful spiritual belief – we are all part of an unbroken and unbreakable chain of people who share a special culture.

Owen Eastwood places this concept at the core of his methods to maximise a team's performance. In this book, he reveals, for the first time, the secrets to what has made him one of the most in-demand Performance Coaches in the world.

Aspects of Owen's unique approach include: finding your identity story; establishing a shared purpose; fostering player leadership rather than dictatorship; seeking the clarity of a collective why; establishing a sense of legacy; recognizing our primal need for social bonding; embracing ancestral wisdom; analyzing the link between confidence and trust, and treasuring the value of humility.

In Belonging, he shines a light on where these powerful ideas are applied around our world in high-performing settings encompassing sport, business, the arts, and the military.

About the Author: 

Over the past decade, Owen Eastwood has worked with some of the most elite teams and groups in the world, including Gareth Southgate's England Football team, the England Rugby team, NATO, Royal Ballet School, UK Sport, British Olympic Association, and the South African Cricket Team – coaching their leaders on how to build world-class cultures and take performance to the highest level.
