The worlds are coming up on 17 th September, it is exciting to be part of such an event and representing IRL. It is great to see so many people from Jersey qualify for Team GB there are 10 Jersey triathlon club members racing in total.
For me leadership and sport are closely linked they both require focus, determination and perseverance. In sport we are measured by the results, the scoreboards each week enable us to determine who is performing well and which areas require more focus. In business it is not so obvious when teams are not performing as well as others which is why KPI's and 'metrics that matter' are crucial. By focusing on the key performance indicators we can seek to make continual marginal gains.
Contrary to this, there is marginal erosion if we fail to spot areas of weakness, this can undermine great achievements elsewhere in the business.
Wishing everyone the best of luck in their last few weeks training, and to all those businesses aiming to stay relevant, resilient and agile in these ever competitive times!
