Do you think like a winner?
Having a winning mindset is the most powerful tool in achieving success!
Often you see and hear sport coaches and athletes talk publically – and proudly – about the need to develop a winning mindset; the need to have a “positive mental attitude.” It has always surprised me that outside of sports this way of thinking – and its importance – is not understood and often quickly dismissed. Declaring the importance of having a winning mindset in the office can get you dismissed as soft. Everyone is so busy trying to get things done that they reject anything that sounds idealistic. But… Here is the truth, battles are won and lost in people’s minds long before they are fought! I can think of one team of content creators who have talked themselves into defeat. They think they are being beaten and it is that mindset alone that is causing them to misstep.
Are we are own worst enemy? We, as an industry, seem to continually relegate the importance of talent. We seem intent on de-humanising our brands in favour of uninterrupted music sweeps.

Giving feedback is an essential part of developing another person (or team’s) performance. Offering someone feedback gives them an observer’s insight into how they’re doing.
Welcome to another installment of “Things Talent Should Know.” As we work with stations, shows and individual talent we make note of the themes that seem to be common across formats and markets. It is our hope that by sharing these we can help talent make improvements to their performance.

It doesn’t matter how experienced you are as a coach, I guarantee you’re making mistakes. I know I do. Often. Working with people to improve performance is tough and there is no secret blueprint for how to do it perfectly each time.
