Using March Madness to Reflect on Success Strategies
The Top Notch Consultants office is buzzing with excitement, as March Madness comes into full swing – this is a celebrated event in our firm! In fact, sports play a big role in our leadership program. There are many important qualities that can be learned by participating in sports.
For instance, practiced athletes know how to keep a positive mind-set in the face of training schedules and setbacks. This same mental grit works in office settings as well. Being able to stay optimistic while working toward long-term Top Notch Consultants goals makes it easier to overcome challenges while maintaining momentum.
There’s also the charisma that sports pros project. Their commitment to something bigger than themselves, along with self-discipline and higher energy levels, make them magnetic. This is a huge benefit in an industry like ours as well, where our work with the public is very collaborative.
Perhaps most notably though, sports teaches the value of goals. Setting objectives is vital in any endeavor, as they provide direction and focus for action. Athletics provide built-in targets for athletes to shoot for, and this habit has a positive impact on executive behavior too.
