Studies Show Athletes Bring Leadership Skills to the Workplace

An article exploring the transferrable qualities and skills athletes gain through participation that make them invaluable in the corporate setting. An interesting note is the idea of public accountability. Athletes are put into situations where tests are conducted in front of an audience, and their successes and failures are measured by scoreboards. They are forced to learn and apply intellectual agility to problem solve on the fly, and handle adversity in a public forum.  These leadership qualities and skills are not easily taught in the framework of standard educational system and can be extremely beneficial to a business organization.  #leadership #corporateathletes #teambuilding #athletics #conflictmanagement #business
