I recently read an article in The Times by Sir Clive Woodward in which he said that successful businesses, like sports teams, need to remain open to new ideas and learn how to perform under pressure.
Great teams are made up of great individuals, and successful team players shared four key characteristics:
- a willingness to learn;
- the ability to perform under pressure;
- the mindset of wanting to be a champion.
Sir Clive argues that talent, on its own, is not enough for success. People must be willing to learn, and be 'sponges' not 'rocks'.
But the ability to play and perform under pressure isn't something with which you are born. It's a coachable skill.
Role-playing various scenarios gives people the necessary skills to cope with all eventualities.
