The Tuesday Tip

from the BCW Sports Practice

Train your teams by letting them train themselves

The training of staff is rightly seen as a fundamental aspect of development in any organisation. Not only does training develop the practical skills required to improve work performance, but the process of training itself also encourages a feeling of progression that can boost morale and prevent staff turnover. That said, it can often be…

If you want to develop a winning strategy, engage with your members first

Many sports organisations or sports cities/regions spend quite some time and resources in developing their own strategy. Despite their commitment to making it a success, only a few are satisfied with the results produced. Well, perhaps the way in which success is measured is not quite exhaustive. In general, people tend to focus on the…

When taking part in a panel, speak first

Taking part in a panel or round table discussion is often seen as a safer option than the more stressful prospect of giving a lecture. Indeed, the idea of responding to questions as part of a group is much less nerve-wracking than having to be the sole focus of attention during a speech. However, being…

To be more helpful, look for what’s different, not what’s similar

Understanding a client’s situation and specific needs is essential in establishing a relationship of trust.

Training might not be the solution to increase your staff’s performance

The benefits of staff training are increasingly being praised.

However, much too often, the initial optimism which these trainings give rise to is swept away by an ex-post difficulty…

When negotiating, the best thing to say may be nothing at all

In the run-up to a negotiation, common practice usually consists of preparing arguments and an array of possible responses. In other words, we tend to enter a negotiation ready to speak… a lot. However, mastering the art of remaining silent maybe equally important, if not more. Moments of silence in a conversation naturally tend to…

To convince an audience, tell what you know – and what you don’t know

When presenting to a small or large group of people you want to achieve something – persuade them, inspire them, motivate them, etc. Having this in mind is the basic premise of any presentation, and whatever your objective is, you will only succeed if you tick off two important boxes, which the audience will be…
