Business Owners - Lessons to Learn from Rocky Balboa

Full View
1. #1 Go the distance!
1 of 4

When Rocky Balboa fought the world champion Apollo Creed, he set out to ‘go the distance’ and last all 15 rounds. His goal was not to get a quick knock out, but to prove his worth. This is something which managers should take on board; don’t base your business decisions on quick ‘cash ins’ - sometimes in business it is important to make decisions based on long term prospects and goals.

Having the right management style is essential to the overall success of your company and the happiness of your employees, and as we all know: high staff morale equates to high productivity.

Knowing how to run a business in such a tough economic climate has become a rarity with so many small companies falling victim to the unrelenting recession. It is therefore important that you adopt the right management approach, maintain a positive outlook, and never give up in order to achieve your career goals.
