It doesn’t matter if you’re on the field or in the office, you are working as a team to complete a common goal. In football you are using everyone’s special abilities to physically push through an opposing team and make a touchdown. A quarter back has to make decisions on the field that can lead his team to victory or defeat. However, everyone on the team has to know their role in order to effectively play as a team. The team cannot think for themselves on the field – that’s the quarterback’s job, and the same goes with a boss in the office.
The business world can work the same way as a football team does. Everyone needs to know their role so they can make since of the instructions they get from their boss. Coworkers need to cooperate with each other so they can overcome obstacles that come their way in the work place. Just like a football team, a team of associates are working together trying to push for a goal to achieve a higher standing for their company. Just like a quarterback has to make decisions on the field the boss has to make decisions that could lead his team to frustration or total success in a project.
Some people may not understand why sports are a big deal when it comes to colleges. Colleges are always trying to promote leadership and team skills so that the next generation workforce can lead themselves. Students are not able to learn leadership qualities from listening to a teacher drone on about the subject. Students need to practice leadership so they know how to take responsibility for victories and failures on and off the field.
