This fall I, Jon Howard, am coaching 3rd grade flag football. My son plays on the team. I have chosen four words to instill in these boys throughout the course of the season. They are focus, fast, execute and fun. Our focus in 3rd grade flag football is fun. If they play with great focus, speed and execution however, they will have more fun and have started to have more fun as they have gotten better at the first three.
How does this relate to business? I don't know if that question warrants much response from me. I think you can all come to your own conclusions. According to a 2013 Gallup poll, however, 70% of Americans hate their jobs. That is a number that businesses cannot afford to ignore.
I've already written about keystone habits and the impact that wellness, as a keystone habit, can have on the climate and the bottom line. With over 18 months experience now working with small businesses, I've seen our wellness focus transcend the fitness center into the lunchroom, the hallways and the home-front. Individuals are managing stress more effectively, sleeping more productively, making better food choices and exercising regularly.
