            Don’t Just Show Up

So it is Baseball playoff season – the second season following the 162 game regular season which lasts about 6 months.  It is this time of the year that some cities get to watch their team struggle it out to win and advance or lose and go home.

Professional sports is “BIG” money.  Lots to be won by team owners, their clubs and athletes. It is really interesting watching who shows up to play, who really plays and which one might just be over compensated for their playoff performance.

In this winner take all campaign, it gets lots of press coverage and plenty of prime time TV time.  The players are on showcase and under a microscope for each action they take or don’t take. Everyone has an opinion about their performance and what should or should not have happened.

The same is true in the business setting as well.  It just does not have a broadcast booth and 6 to 10 cameras watching what is going on and slow motion reviews of each pitch and out or safe call.  In your business club house it boils down to the last sale, the last error, the last what ever was done either good or not up to company standards.

That being said, each and every day you have to do more than just show up.  You must come ready to play and perform for your business. You also need to get your staff to come ready to play and not just show up.

This week, as you work on your business rather than just in your business, look around at your team.  Are they arriving ready to play?  Have you equipped them with the right equipment to be successful? Have you provided an environment which gets them motivated to be at their very best?
