The Stakes Are Too High

So the World Cup continues without England. How many more wrong decisions will referees and linesmen make before the trophy is raised in triumph? And why does football insist on rejecting such simple solutions to a growing problem?

Just on Sunday we saw a clear goal from Frank Lampard ignored by officials – would this have changed the outcome of the game?  Then Carlos Tevez’s off-side goal was allowed – and look at the debacle that followed!

A 30 second video review of either incident would have saved several minutes of arguing (in the case of the wronged Mexicans) and several years of wondering ‘what if’ from the England team and supporters.

However it’s not just football that ignores simple tools that could make a huge difference.
Leaders are prone to human error all the time.

Take motivating your staff. We all naturally assume that other people are motivated in the same way as us – first we have to learn that they may not be; then we have to learn what really motivates and de-motivates them; then we can apply that knowledge every day to improve results.

So why keep on guessing – follow “How Motivation Drives Performance” to improve your team’s results.
