We have arrived at the final part of the high-performance model “RESULTS”. For many, results signify just that, the result, the end. But in any high-performance team it is never the end. It’s a steppingstone to moving onto even greater success.
Before we move on though it is important to evaluate the result, be it good or bad. What have we learnt, what can we take forward to help you be even more successful?
Failure or feedback
If we had good results it is important to still look for areas of improvement, when a track athlete breaks the world record you will never hear them say that’s me done, it’s always what can I do to enable me to not only continue to occupy the top spot, but how can I move even further ahead of my competitors. Remember people will always look to mirror success, so if you are the success then you need to be constantly looking for new ways to stay at the front.
On the flip side, if you didn’t get the results you were looking for this does not need to be seen as a failure. We at 1404 Performance are strong believers in the saying “there is no such thing as failure, only feedback”. If you learn something from the experience, then there are still some wins to be had. You got a result, just not the one you wanted.
We lose more races than we win
When we work with businesses, we help the teams understand not only what the goals of the business are, but most importantly their role in achieving it. Sometimes this involves setting separate goals for the team that will ultimately move the business closer to its goal. By going through this exercise, the team and individuals now have ownership and accountability, which makes them more likely to deliver.
There are many goal setting processes out there, and yes, some work well, but the problem is often remembering what the letters stand for. We encourage the teams we work with to create their own goal setting process and the letters/word that build the model. As you can imagine there is a lot of fun to be had here, and many of the words are un-publishable. But once again, this creates ownership. The team owns that unique model, and by doing this are more likely to engage with it.
As with all of the blogs relating to the 1404 Performance High-Performance model, this is just a small snippet of each block. When we work with businesses, we design the programme to meet their individual needs. All of our programmes are bespoke but have one thing in common. The tried and tested High-Performance model that sits behind all of the sessions we run.
