"All employees must come to work each day with a competitive mindset to help their company compete and win in the marketplace. They must exhibit an unending drive to do what it takes to break the will of competitors.”

 

As a sales or business professional, do you feel one step behind competitors? Are you frustrated at work, lost your motivation and want it back? Did you or your team miss your numbers last quarter and need to make a comeback? Does your team's underachievement frustrate you? Do others drop the ball at work and hurt your performance or sales?

These frustrations are common for anyone working in a complex business that needs to fiercely compete in the marketplace. There is now a proven solution to your frustrations. It’s called the Corporate Competitor Fast Start Program for individuals and teams. The program is a highly comprehensive, seven-step process conducted over four months of individual and team learning and practice.


From a Cubicle To a Competitive Mindset

Teams and businesses underachieve because many employees come to work with a mindset that does not match the competitive demands of business. In fact, it is the direct opposite of what is needed. They are using a “cubicle mindset” (safe, status quo, tolerating, individualistic) to compete in one of the most unforgiving competitive arenas in life: business and the free market

Every day, people walk out their front doors to go “do my job” without the mental aggressiveness and urgency to compete against companies who are relentlessly looking for ways to be quicker, better, cheaper and put you out of business. Employees need to come to work with the exact mindset that fits the very nature of how companies create value, by aggressively competing. This requires every employee to have a competitive mindset when playing their position in the organization.

 

Do You See Yourself In the Following Results?

As employees and teams try to compete using a passive, cubicle mindset against fierce, strong competitors, they create the following results:

  • 40% of the average company is unprofitable. Most businesses are sustained by a small division whose earnings subsidize everyone else's losses, according the Island of Profit In A Sea of Red Ink by Jonathan L. S. Byrnes.

  • 52.3% of employees are unhappy at work, according to a 2014 report by the Conference Board, the New York-based nonprofit research group. (Forbes, June 20, 2014)
  • 70% of employees say they are not reaching their full potential at work, according to Gallup’s State of the American Workplace survey. Out of those employees, 52% report not being engaged, and another 18% are actively disengaged. 

According to Gallup, “These employees are emotionally disconnected from their companies and may actually be working against their employers' interests; they are less productive, are more likely to steal from their companies, negatively influence their coworkers, miss workdays, and drive customers away.” Gallup estimates that actively disengaged employees cost the U.S. $450 billion to $550 billion in lost productivity per year. 


Break Free From a Cubicle Mindset: Become A Corporate Competitor

The underperformance illustrated in these surveys is partly the result of the cubicle mindset. This mindset does not match what’s required to be successful in the highly competitive marketplace, which causes employees to be frustrated, demotivated, tolerate mediocre performance, and hesitant. They need to have a mindset that fits the high stakes, head-to-head competition of business. It’s the mindset of a true Corporate Competitor who uses the same mental discipline and methods as the most Elite, World-Class Athletes.

As a sports psychology counselor and corporate psychology consultant with A Talented Mind Clinic, I routinely work with performers in the two separate worlds of sports and business. Over the years, I noticed that only a small number of business professionals had the same competitive mindset as my sports clients, and the vast majority did not. The professionals who had the same mindset as elite athletes were more successful helping their company relentlessly compete, elevating other employees’ performance, and keeping the pressure on competitors. 

The mental skills of elite athletes are essential for all business performers because:

  • Businesses and athletes both need to win in order to stay in the game
  • Businesses and athletes both compete against world-class talent that requires them to elevate their game to sustain a winning streak
  • Employees and athletes both need to compete each day to break the will of opponents, not just do their jobs
  • Employees and athletes always have other players on the sidelines ready to take their place if they fumble the ball


Your Path To a Competitive Mindset:

Corporate Competitor Fast Start Program

To help move employees from a cubicle to a competitive mindset, I worked with different organizations to research the qualities of the fiercest individual competitors in business. This research was the foundation of my book The Corporate Competitor: Secrets of the fiercest competitors in business.  What I discovered was that the most successful corporate competitors use the same mental skills as my most successful, world-class athlete clients, while the under-achievers do not.

So, I consolidated the elite corporate competitors' qualities with the most highly effective mental skills athletes use to win to create the Corporate Competitor Fast Start Program. This unique program teaches you the same mental skills as elite Olympic, professional, and NCAA athletes to be a stronger competitor for your business.
