If you are like millions of Americans, you know the value of eating right and incorporating regular exercise into your routine.
However, you may not be aware of the fact that we can gain more than just a healthy mind and body through healthy living, we can also learn how to be a better leader.
Neal Ferrell is on the Account Development team @LucidChart, and has multiple years of sales and management experience. He is passionate about becoming the best at whatever he does, and spends 4-5 days a week progressing in CrossFit.
CrossFit is a fitness regimen developed by Greg Glassman over several decades. Glassman, CrossFit’s Founder and CEO, was the first person in history to define fitness in a meaningful, measurable way: increased work capacity across broad time and modal domains.
Recently Neal Ferrell examined his Crossfit routine and discovered a direct correlation to business in his article 4 Leadership Lessons To Take Away From CrossFit. Ferrell says:
1. Train and Coach your Employees Constantly
2. Cheer your employees & encourage them to push their limits
3. Help them see the small victories along the way
4. Make their work goals THEIR goals
These are great lessons for every manager to consider, but can be especially helpful when preparing for a trade show event, like the upcoming ExhibitorLive 2017 March 12-17.
Training your team on your products and services, what to expect from attendees, how to overcome objections and how to effectively build relationships wlil help ensure a productive event.
Being there, being visible and available so that you can encourage and redirect when necessary to help reinforce positive and successful behavior is a critical part of building a successful team.
Taking the time to celebrate individual and team successes helps motivate and encourage your team so they continue to exhibit those positive results.
Finally, communicating the company goals and encouraging each employee to set their own personal goals helps them buy into the overall success and be proud of the end result.
This week we will be working hard to build relationships with those that come visit Booth 1537 at the 2017 ExhibitorLive event in Las Vegas. We hope to see you there!
