[FLR] A Gold Medal Approach To Leadership

August 19, 2016 The | “Backstage Pass” Edition


Happy Friday,


There is a team behind staging the Olympic Games. The athletes and coaches are the focus of the games, but if you had backstage pass you would see teams of professionals in finance, information technology, logistics, security, lighting, sound, catering, marketing, engineering and yes, even pool technicians, hard at work.


The Olympic organization is just like any other organization. It takes a village of leaders behind the scenes who enable the “stars” of the show to shine. It takes a lot of great people doing great work to enable the more visible parts of the organization to succeed.
