The Winning way for Managers light up by Sports Office politics Make everyone feel part of the same team. No cliques, no favorites, no inner circles. Whatever the reality of the situation, it is enough that everyone feels that they are part of the same team and that no one is more favored than the other. Again, this is a platitude espoused by every office manager; sadly in 9 out of 10 offices it just isn't true. Continuous Encouragement Everyone likes to feel appreciated, both when things are going well and when they are going badly. Ardley and Cox delivered encouragement at every possible opportunity, for both minor and major pieces of work. It makes a big difference and would translate well in a corporate environment. Consistency The start of the race is the most accelerated part and in the last leg it is the most fatigued. Similarly, a business will experience high growth and later stagnant growth, if they sustain that difficult period they become successful. For eg. Michael Bevan, Roger Federer and Mahendra Singh Dhoni 1 Have Backup plans As we can see in cricket, football or as a matter of fact in any sports. There is always Plan B if one bowler goes for a toss have another one to bowl. Same goes for the corporate managers to have contingency plans to face any adversities. For eg. Indian team have array of batsmen and bowlers on bench. 2 34 Consistency >> Backup Plans >> Encouragement >> Politics

Your members want to know what will happen in 2014, not what happened in 2004. So be sure to constantly deliver and communicate value—the only banner that people want to see in the Boston Garden is the next one, and you should be building toward that in your organization Skate where the puck is going to be: That was Wayne Gretzky’s mantra: “Some players skate where the puck is, I skate where the puck is going to be.” Consider that with your Board selection process. Are you considering merging with a group? Bring on a Board member who has done some work with bringing two organizations together. Having technology troubles? Bring on a tech- savvy board member. Make sure your Board selections honor your organization’s future, not an individual’s past. Know your role: When a ball is hit up the middle in baseball, you never see the shortstop and second basemen collide as they both go for it. That’s because they know exactly where the other one will be. This kind of role definition is critical in any organization—know who is doing what.
