Keys to Success

I spent the last weekend as a Teaching Assistant at a coaching intensive course with more than over 40 coaching colleagues and trainers.  One of my colleagues, Guido Furlani, from White Eagle Coaching, gave a short but yet powerful session on the Keys to Success over a lunch break, which I must share with you here.

Drawing from a variety of books (such as “Outliers” by Malcolm Gladwell, “Talent is Overrated” by Geoff Colvin, and “The Way We Were Working Isn’t Working” by Tony Schwartz), Guido presented on the 3 Key Ingredients to Success:

1) Focused Effort
2) Repetition
3) Feedback

The same ingredients are required for any projects, pursuits, or goals, regardless of whether you are a professional athlete, a business executive, or a business owner.

No one gets to be the best at what they do without single-minded focus and attention on a project, coupled with A LOT of repetition (the magic 10,000 hours is the key), and getting feedback and guidance from an objective outsider like a sports coach, executive coach, or business coach.

For those of you who are business owners, which element is missing in your business?  Perhaps now is a good time to recognize and add the missing ingredient?
