Speaker & Author
Anthony Reed was having lunch with a former staff member, Chris. Chris confided in Anthony, "I don't understand what's happening. I'm not satisfied with my job any more. I'm performing the same work that I was doing when you were over the division. However, it's just not fun or fulfilling. What were you doing to make us feel differently?"
Anthony explained that he had managed the division and lead the employees by using the same techniques that he used to run marathons and to coach other successful runners. People became highly motivated, embraced (calculated) risks, moved outside of their comfort zones, and achieved corporate and personal goals. The employees had become mental marathoners. Strong individuals make strong teams. (You're only as strong as the wekest link.)
Anthony had been successfully employing marathon coaching techniques for over 25 years in corporate America and in governmental entities. Years later, researchers discovered a direct link between successful managers and marathoners. They are both thrill seekers; Type T personalities.
