Sports are a huge part of our world. Any kind of win whether it may be in football, basketball, and any other sport, it gives insight into how important working together can be. “Just as sports as seen to get a group of individuals working together, similarly in business it should be the exact same way,” mentions Nikesh Patel, Managing Director of HRS Invictus. There are so many legends to look up to that inspire entrepreneurs to use the same type of mindset and methods to achieve their goals. There are a few key things to remember when putting business and sports in a relationship together. “For starters, it’s an excellent way to lean towards a common goal as a group. It’s also a great to build competition in a healthy manner because individuals have their own goals as well as the company’s’ goal in mind,” says Nikesh Patel of HRS Invictus.
An article posted on LinkedIn, ‘Are Sports and Business Related?’ discusses this idea in depth. The writer mentions, “While the competition is fierce, the talent is spectacular and the atmosphere is epic, there’s a lot more that goes on behind the scenes.” “This is exactly the relationship between business and sports. There’s much that goes on behind the office doors but together the results have a joint effect,” says Nikesh Patel of HRS Invictus. Take an example of the greatest athlete from the USA, Michael Jordan. There are various reasons for his success. Work ethic. Desire. Dedication. These are merely just a few factors of why Michael Jordan has secured the spot of being one of the greats. “There are things to remember and relate to yourself as a business individual, Jordan accomplished this to reach his goal and win championships — being an entrepreneur you can use the same techniques to build your own goals and win,” notes Nikesh Patel of HRS Invictus.
So many people get inspired when athletes do well and are recognized for it. An example of a business individual with a sports mindset would also be Michael Jordan. He is the face of Nike’s Air Jordan sneakers and has many other endorsements such as Hanes. “This goes to show that having a sports mind does give you an opportunity to do well as an entrepreneur also,” says Nikesh Patel of HRS Invictus. We try to instill this type of mindset in all our business partners so that they are aware of and make use of this technique in their professional goals. It has a unique upper hand and way of making things work for yourself for the long run.
