Olympics for Business


“Great things in business are never done by one person. They’re done by a team of people.”
~ Steve Jobs

Every four years, we are treated to the winter Olympics where athletes from around the world come together as elite teams to represent their country. Teamwork, leadership and perseverance are the heart of what makes an Olympic team win medals.  How can the spirit behind the Olympic Games help your business or organization go for the gold?

All strong teams work together and achieve more than any individual star. Many times in the business world, we are in charge of a difficult decision that can impact us positively or negatively. It’s important to always remember to serve in the best interests of the whole team involved for the long run and not just towards a single outcome.

When it comes to the competition waiting in the wings, it’s necessary to come better prepared and ready to win.  As a business owner, creating that best edge for your brand helps you stand out among other brands in the same arena.

During the Olympics, the fierce competition and incredible accomplishments of the games can create excitement and buzz around the office. Encouraging social media posts and hash tags related to the Olympics while incorporating your business and organization brings attention from a larger audience of people and adds a personal touch.

Almost every network and media hub is following the Olympic Games and the success of the athletes. The Games give way to new ideas, teamwork, and inspiration in all of us. Use this time to take advantage of this year and help your business or organization go for the gold.
