21 Feb Volleyball, Training, IT & Me – A Learning Journey
I’ve played volleyball for more years than I care to admit. I’m also a qualified coach and National League referee.
Today, I spent this cold and frosty morning helping to coach around 20 enthusiastic beginners, aged between 14-17. And it was a joy.
Seeing their enthusiasm, will to succeed and desire to master the considerable skills of Volleyball was, for me, the purest form of enjoyment. As a coach, this is the greatest “fix” – seeing them achieving their goals and stretching for more.
It has made me reflect on my journey. My career didn’t start in developing people but, like many of us, I gravitated towards what resonates with me. My training career started in IT, at a point when technology was developing exponentially and for some reason, I got it – and I wanted to help others “get it” too.
Fast forward many years and I have expanded my reach beyond IT. I know that I have helped many people over the years who were deemed not worth the effort and the accolade goes to them, not me. All I did was to do a deal with them; if you want to improve, I can help you.
This is what drives me, inspires me and has brought me to this point in my career. Sam and I have created a unique framework for business success which is entirely grounded in helping people and businesses to succeed. This year, we founded @bebusinessfit and our joint passion for being successful in both sport and fitness is what has driven us to create our unique fitness test.
Are you up for the challenge?
