Must You Run a Gold Medal Business to Run a Business Built for Success

The International, four year love fest, The Olympic Games concluded Sunday. The major broadcaster online and on USA TV was NBC. Virtually everything was on tape delay. My son called it ‘fake’ drama as we knew the results already for almost every event, yet we still wanted to watch the event in the evening when we had the time to enjoy it. We skipped the final grand finale as we felt abused by the tape delay forcing us to watch a program, although commercial free, that we had no interest in to then see folks play music at midnight.

For the athletes who were still present for the closing ceremony, (there seemed to be many who remained in London to enjoy it) do you think they all felt proud to be a participant, to be an Olympic Athlete? Or just the Gold medal winners felt that way? The TV coverage really spends most of their time speaking about the medal winners and the rest of the field is really not part of the story line.

Do you recall the day when you started your business? The idea stage, the formulation, your first client or sale – Consider where you are now with your business, company or organization. Are you and your team striving to be the absolute best in your field? Or are you instead spending your time and effort providing the best product or service for your clients and customers?

You might not recognize the two do not necessarily go hand in hand. The point here is, what is the driving mission and vision for you and your company? Is this a topic which is discussed often enough to where it is part of the culture of your business? Where everyone understands and fully buys into the mission and vision of the organization?

In order to clarify and avoid any confusion – your business might be providing a service which is provided on a national level by a much larger organization. This national organization is considered the best in the business and annually wins awards which say they are. However, on a local and regional level your business may provide the best customer and client service and interaction and your loyal following would never dream of working with the large national organization. This same story line would work for a retail or sale of a product type of business.

Your business mission and vision statement may never include any interest or intention of growing to become a large national organization. This does not mean in any way, shape, or form you are not running a very successful business! Focus on what matters most to these and you will achieve the desired outcome.

The development of your business built for success sits squarely on you and your dreams and desires for your company.

2012 Olympic Games Makes Team or Individual Choice Important

Business Succes

When we consider our business and taking our business to great success, we must understand and recognize where we are operating at our most effective. Are we more team oriented or individually oriented? Are we creating the environment for our business which matches this response? It is a balancing act. Unless you are an individual business owner with no one else on your team and you are the one who does everything. The majority of us have some type of team either in person, virtual, or works in a business with other people.

Take this a step or two further and look into the why. Why are you more comfortable working in a team environment? If you are operating more effectively and more comfortably in a team environment, and you are not currently working in a team environment, you need to create or find a team environment to work in.

When you conduct the review process you might find there are one or two small items you miss about working in a team environment. If this is the case you will want to recreate these processes.

For example: If you miss having the ability to run ideas and concepts by other members of your team, it is quite possible you will be able to replace this interaction by signing up for and participating in a Mastermind Group which meets regularly.

On the other side of the coin is the analysis of the individual performer. You may do your best work working alone and with no team interaction, no boss and no one to answer to. If this is your situation, you will want to be certain that your work environment meets this need for you. A word of caution here is necessary. If you look at the successful, medal winning Olympic athletes who are individual performers, they each have a coach and a support staff behind them. It is a lonely road working all alone. You will always assume you have the right answers with no one to offer another opinion, whether it is positive or negative, toward your solution. There is nothing like that second set of eyes to assist the individual performer in achieving their goal of success.
