At K2 our passionate belief is that if people played work like the elite play sport, they’d get better results. For us, the Olympics is an opportunity to contribute, appreciate and learn. We exist to help the business world think, prepare and perform like elite athletes. So what did we learn from Rio?
Olympic athletes spend most of their time training and very little time competing, so each day they must think about what they need to do to get better. Contrast this with to the world of work where it feels like a competition every day and everyone’s focused on ‘to-do lists’ much more than ‘to improve lists’.
So, the Rio Olympic Games are underway! After 4 years of preparation – for both athletes and their support teams, and for the host city – the Games got started with a spectacular Opening Ceremony on Friday night.
