What business, individual and life-lessons can be learned from the world of high performance sport? Elite sport is a world where athletes, coaches and managers pursue more than simply excellence, recognizing that perfection is the ultimate target. It is a world where creating a culture of team-work, discipline, attention to detail, creativity and co-dependence are the difference between success and failure.
That difference can be as small as 0.05%, and borrowing the principles of high performance sport can provide a cutting edge to businesses and decision makers who understand the strategic, tactical and operational opportunities before them.
Business leadership faces challenges such as motivation, building a winning culture, facing competition, managing scarce resources optimally, and crafting high-performing teams under pressure. These are common to coaches and managers in sport, and the lessons learned and applied can contribute to finding the winning advantage.
