Pacey Performance Podcast

Success leaves clues. Reflections from NRL, NBA & AFL with Lachlan Penfold (Director of Performance at Melbourne Storm)

December 24, 2020

In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast I am speaking to Director of Performance at Melbourne Storm, Lachlan Penfold. Lachlan has tasted a lot of success across an incredible career. That can of course can be put down to many different factors but in my opinion, success leaves clues. It isn't by chance that he has won the NRL final with Sydney Roosters in 2013, lost in the final of the NBA playoffs with Golden State Warriors, and has won two out of the last three NRL finals with Melbourne Storm. This podcast is a reflection of what has been a fantastic career spanning rugby union, water polo, AFL, NBA and rugby league.

In this episode, we discussed...

  • Winning environments

    • Creating a culture of winning
    • Differences across sports
      • How did you change?
    • Influence of a head coach
    • Where you go for inspiration
      • Influence from your time in other sports

        • What did you learn that you still come back to now?
    • How have players changed over your career?
      • How have you had to adapt?
