Three Lessons for Business Leadership From The Rio Olympics
MultiTaction VP, Jonathan Priestley recently met with Andrew Cave from Forbes to discuss what impact Britain's Olympic success can have on business leadership.
Britain won 67 medals in the Rio de Janeiro Olympics, putting it second to the US ahead of China and beating a 108-year-old national record for most medals won.
If its achievement of 27 gold, 23 silver and 17 bronze medals is a blip, it is a multi-Olympic one, since Team GB notched up 65 medals when the Games came to London four years ago.
Indeed, the latest performance marks the first time that a home nation has bettered its Olympic medals tally on foreign shores four years later.
Jonathan and Andrew discussed the following points:
- How targeted investment can maximise return
- How human insight can trigger marginal gains
- Team cohisiveness is no accident
