A team of athletes needs more than just potential: they work every day to maintain the physical fitness that lets them make that potential real. On the playing field, it’s not enough to know what to do: you have put in the work to become strong, fast, and agile enough to act sooner and better than your opponent.
Most teams today aren’t athletes, but they face the same reality. For teams of thought workers, it’s not their physical ability that matters, but their mental ability. For a team of smart, well-educated people to realise their potential, they need to be mentally fit.
Mental fitness is the measure of a person’s mental resilience, agility, and focus. Like physical fitness, it is the result of training, care, and attention. Like physical fitness, it is essential to a team’s ability to work well.
