From Russia With Love: How The Olympics Can Boost Your Work Performance

Olympics 2014 NBC logo
The Winter Olympics are in full swing as the world watches athletes dreams being realized and shattered depending on their performance.

Your work performance may not get you a medal but there are relevant lessons to be learned from Olympics coach Bob Bowman – the guy who trained THE most decorated Olympian – swimmer Michael Phelps.

1. Ditch the ‘one size fits all’ attitude
Managers need to learn what motivates an employee.
Some respond to logic, others want to be left alone to
work their way. There’s no cookie cutter approach.
2. Determine your gold standard
Each organization has a certain standard that
everyone needs to buy into. Be a little better today
than you were yesterday and you’ll live up to it.
3. Continue to develop your skills
Good judgement comes from experience and experience
comes from bad judgements. You learn the most from mistakes
as they are opportunities to change what’s not working.

Olympic Medals

The Russians put on quite a performance to show the world they are a power player.

Show your organization you’re a team player by taking these tips to bring home the gold!
