Genesis Business Partnership believes businesses can learn a lot from Portugal, after they rose up and took home this year’s UEFA Euro’s title.
Despite a distinctly average start by Portugal’s standards – failing to win a game in 90 minutes throughout the group stage of the tournament – Portugal were determined not to let this stop them and went on to beat tournament hosts France to win the competition. As one of the favourites, with big names including Ronaldo and Nani, the firm were expected to perform well and Genesis Business Partnership believe this helped them to achieve their goal.
Genesis Business Partnership state how many business professionals fail because they are scared of what actually achieving their goals will mean for them. Portugal never considered failure as an option and despite a shaky start went on to achieve success.
Here, Genesis Business Partnership has revealed the lessons that all business professionals should take from Portugal’s 2016 journey:
Leadership is a strong combination of strategy and character. A team will always respect and learn from their leaders and try to help their leader achieve his/her mission. The Portugal team played like a team ready to reward their captain. Ronaldo played like a hero but sadly his final was cut short. However his team didn’t give up, in his absence on the pitch they carried on ready to deliver the goods for their leader.
Learn from Failure and never give up
Success is connected with action; successful business owners keep going, they may make mistakes but they will never quit. Portugal displayed some of their worst ever performances in this tournament but they didn’t give up. In fact this made them more determined to prove the doubters wrong. Genesis Business Partnership outline that it is important for all business professionals to keep their mission in mind and keep improving and working towards it, one step at a time.
Nothing is impossible
A number of big teams were in the tournament including Germany, England, Spain, Italy and Belgium and of course the hosts France. Portugal has minimal football history in the tournament and yet they went on to beat the hosts and win the EUROs. Genesis Business Partnership outlines how business professionals should learn from this and never shy away from their mission because nothing is impossible. “It is the courage to continue which counts,” Genesis Business Partnership reminds professionals.
