What is T-CUP?

T-CUP stands for Thinking Correctly Under Pressure

Remember when England won the Rugby World Cup in 2003? Having looked comfortable at half-time, questionable refereeing decisions allowed Australia back into the game forcing extra time at the end of 80 minutes. The teams were still tied as the clock ran down to the end of the additional period. But England had a plan and when the ball was given to Jonny Wilkinson in the last few seconds, he executed a perfect drop goal to win England’s first World Cup.

England did not win that World Cup by accident. It took years of preparation both as a team and for each individual. Wilkinson himself was obsessive about practising for hours and utilising visualisation techniques that would help him become the best fly-half of his era.

Sir Clive Woodward was responsible for guiding that team to World Cup success. And it is Sir Clive Woodward who used T-CUP to ensure his team were ready to win under extreme pressure.

Using the 6 step T-CUP model, Your Excellency and Sir Clive Woodward have co-created this training programme designed specifically for you and your business, to ensure your team will put the skills and techniques instantly usable skills and training into practice.

What happens on a T-Cup training day?

Prior to the training day we will have a ‘diagnostic session’ with you and your team. This allows us to understand how your team is performing, what is working well, what needs improvement and what exceptional looks like.

With this information we will create a T-CUP day especially for you, designed to meet your exact objectives.

On the day your team will be inspired by:

  • Video stories from sporting legends and leaders sharing their T-CUP secrets to help you relate your experiences most effectively
  • Videos from Sir Clive Woodward himself explaining the origins of T-CUP and how you can apply it in your business
  • Practical exercises that will help your team use T-CUP in typical scenarios, building their understanding and engagement as they deal with challenges relevant to them

Thinking Correctly Under Pressure will be embedded within your team. We include a half-day follow-up session to support your progress, discuss barriers to success and agree new objectives.

Why does T-CUP training work?


T-CUP training is so powerful because the day truly inspires those who attend. Our videos will deliver stories of performance challenges under pressure from elite athletes and leaders who everyone can relate to. The winning atmosphere we create through Sir Clive Woodward’s Rugby World Cup success gets people into a positive mindset, ready to embrace T-CUP principles.


The interactive exercises we use are based on your specific business scenarios. Learning starts straight away, is more deeply embedded because of its relevance and gives your team practical skills to use the moment they go back to the office.
