Some of you are probably thinking, exercise, what does that have to do with business? Actually, a lot.
Leo has some pretty good ideas on how to mix up the exercise routine and make it fun. You should apply that same idea to your business. Okay. I admit. It will take some explaining. So here goes.
Most of us get stuck in a rut. We don’t cross train ourselves for when things get dicey. We don’t enjoy those off sites or strategic meetings because they are the same old boring routine (see, routine, as in exercise). Even if you are in a stable company, chances are, there are competitors that are nipping at your heals. These competitors are thinking difference. They are coming at you from new angles that will catch you off guard. You need to react to these new entrants by keeping things fresh by cross-training your company.
So, look for fun ways to exercise your team so that they stay engaged and recognize what’s lurking to get them.
