Football, Business and You

Some of the people who work at International Experts never tire of football season. Photo: Cose up of an american football on the field, players in the backgroundThey look forward all year to the start of the season, and the Super Bowl is a bittersweet event.

Regardless of whether or not you are a rabid American football fan, there are many parallels between sports teams and business.

Players and Coaches

In all team sports there are key players with designated roles. Nearly every football player has a unique job to do, while also responsible for covering their teammates. Quarterbacks do not act alone—they are part of a team that includes players with speed, strength players, a staff of supporting coaches and excellent communication between the positions in the ‘field of play’.

Managers and team leaders are quite similar to football coaches. They have a playbook with instructions and strategies on how to keep their company advancing towards the goal. Managers and coaches train their players, making adjustments as needed, and know how to play to their team’s strengths. Managers ensure the team has the necessary equipment needed to help their company perform. Simply substitute football helmets and shoulder pads for company software and hardware equipment.

A team doesn’t only consist of individual players. There are also various departments who work as a team but also operate differently. For example, a Sales and Finance team, a Marketing team, and an IT team have different skill-sets, but each support the other.

The Goal

Of course, the ultimate goal in football is to win, and be a consistent winner. However, the job doesn’t end just after one game or one season. STEM fields are highly competitive.

Do you have the players in your team with the skill sets that you need? Are you afraid that another company may hire a key current employee, and not have a back-up plan?
