The manager, the athlete
Updated: Mar 28
I have come to understand that the best attitude a manager can have in organisations is that of a good athlete. You compete only with yourself and your best last achievement. You improve your mental resilience and grow your physical strength and capabilities every day. Fairness, team spirit and comradery are ingrained in you.
You lead when you need to, speak only if it is for something true and good and are graceful with the mistakes of others. If you need to go, you go, otherwise you stay and focus on your goals in front of you. There is truly nothing better than this.
