Running your business is just like running a marathon

Every year thousands of people take part in various runs and marathons, pushing themselves to the limit. They are constantly training and improving, just as businesses should be. 

Despite their differences, men and women of all ages take part in these events with the shared desire to reach the finish line. To make it to the end goal and to keep improving on their previous time, these sportsmen and women are constantly training, adapting and investing in the right kit.

If people didn’t train for these events, they would be wholly unprepared. Perhaps the same is true in organisations. Some companies think that the odd team outing or team building session will be enough to energise their team and get them to where they need to go.

Just as we prepare for sporting events, businesses should be investing in staff and providing consistent team building days combined with effective training and tools to keep motivated back at the office.

Most team meetings are regarded as tedious and unnecessary when they should be creative and energising. We can help team leaders not just when they are with us for an Away Day but also when they are back in the office preparing for that dreaded team meeting. If you’d like to inject some passion and energy into your team meetings please get in touch to organise a free consultation.
