Are you ready for some football?! We are at Pisani Recruiting!
The NFL kickoff a few weeks ago got us thinking about all that the players have to do to get ready... The preparation begins months in advance to be in shape, both physically and mentally. They need to be primed, prepared, and confident. Does this sound like you before a big work meeting or event?
We can learn from our favorite players about how they approach their big events. Here are tips you can use the next time you need to prep for a make-or-break event at work:
Evaluate your last performance – Performance specialists recommend setting aside time to think about how your last performance went. What went right? What could be improved? This way you can figure out what needs improved.
Develop a mission statement – Know what your ‘why’ is before your ‘what.’ Remind yourself of your personal mission statement before setting specific goals.
Develop coping strategies – If something goes wrong you don’t want to lose sight of what you need to do. Come up with a quick way to effectively deal with stressful situations. Try deep breaths or taking a short walk. Know what you need to do to regroup so you don’t want to waste your brainpower trying to decide.
