Over time, I’ve observed that much of Dave’s advice doesn’t just apply to fitness and weightlifting. The psychology and coaching he uses to push me to achieve more than I could alone can also apply to being successful in the workplace.
This is a good three post series from my friend Kevin Kaminski. In it he takes several lessons he has learned from his personal trainer and applied them to work. Really a lot of it centers around focus, motivation, and accountability. Many of these often get overlooked in traditional environments but they are critically important in an agile environment. Thanks Kevin for the great comparison and reminder on many of these lessons.
