Recognize this?

A random Sunday. You’ve done your bit of sporty exercise in the morning. A pleasant walk with your family and dogin the afternoon makes a great second half. By the end of the day you switch on your favorite sports channel, just before dinner will be served. You’ll never stop enjoying to watch elite athletes, bringing out the best of themselves. Or teams, battling through to the end to win a match. And not to forget the coaches, stimulating, guiding and comforting their teams.

 

Slowly your eyes start feeling heavy. Just before you give in to a power nap you visualize yourself as a coach. Coach of your team of professionals in the workplace. Wouldn’t it be great if everyone behaves as an elite athlete? Full of desire and dedication, determined to achieve the goals set. Not only  with the pressure of deadlines or calamities, but just by default. Can you imagine how life in the workplace would look like if accomplishments are celebrated as decisive scores in a match of championship?

 

Suddenly you startle awake. Reality check. Just as many have said before, elite sports is not like any business. It’s easy to come up with at least 10 fundamental differences. So for tomorrow, business as usual, just another day in the office. Or….

One of these rare, authentic professionals. Someone brave enough to give you what you need, which at fist sight might not appear what you've asked for.
