What if we looked at high-performance through the lens of high-performing athletes?
Imagine this: you're a professional athlete training to compete at the Olympics.
Now, the Olympic games take place every 4 years. (Well, unless you have a pandemic and then you have Tokyo 2020 happening in 2021. But that's an exception and that's why it's in between brackets:)).
So, you're the athlete, training to get your best results at the Olympics.
You're training for gold.
You're not training just the few weeks ahead of the Olympic games.
You're training throughout the 4 years in between.
Every single day.
Does this mean you're going to be at 100% every single day?
No, not really.
That's a VERY unrealistic expectation!
What this means is that you're going to have the support, the community, the TEAM and the mindset to help pick yourself up, even on (or especially on) those days when you operate at 50%.
Or those days when you don't hit your target and you don't win the race.
Those days when you'd rather run and hide than run the race.
And then your team steps in to help pick you up.
Your trainer, your coach, your physiotherapist, your nutritionist, everyone takes the lead depending on what needs to be done.
They're all in!
They all contribute to the win!
So you go to the next race.
And you get a new personal best.
Your personal gold.
And from there, you feel you can go for the Olympic gold.
And that's priceless!
Now, what if we looked at everyone in our organizations and saw high-performing athletes?
How would we talk to each other, support one another, help each other reach our full potential and make our best contribution?
How would we all change the game?
No judging, no blaming, no unrealistic expectations.
Just a core belief that if we're all in that team together, we're all essential if we're going to win anything!
Because we 100% know that without everyone's input, there is no Olympic gold.
Let's talk more about you and your team as high-performing athletes.
The ones that LEAD DIFFERENT. TOGETHER.
