Whether you realize it or not, business and sports have a lot in common. Playing a sport teaches you how to be a good team member and team leader, but it also teaches you the importance of being comfortable with having possession. Every player on a top performing, top ranking sports team is comfortable with possessing and controlling the ball because they know that one day they could be in a position to make the winning goal.
So, what can we learn from these top performing athletes and teams that can help us become better team members and team leaders in our organizations? On today’s episode, I’m explaining the importance of getting comfortable with “controlling the ball” in your business and organization and how it can help you become a better leader, speaker, and business owner.
“The best leaders are self-possessed.”
Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:
- Lessons we can learn from sports athletes to help us become better leaders
- The importance of getting comfortable with possession
- Identifying “spotlight masters” and “spotlight amateurs”
My Challenge to You:
- Think about your career, your business, your life as a giant soccer field
- When you have the ball, take a deep breath, trust yourself, and trust your instincts to make the right decision
