Precision Acquisitions Direct argue that sports minded individuals possess transferable skills that will bode them in good stead for success in life and within the workplace, the London based direct marketing and sales company are looking for these types of individuals to join their ranks.  

The skills individuals with a sporting background learn are often ones that can’t be taught in a classroom or the boardroom. These skills can be applied to all areas of life, although many sportsmen and women don’t identify these skills or they compartmentalise for use in the sporting arena only.  

Precision Acquisitions Direct have identified these skills that young people learn, these not only help with all aspects of their life but they also provide young athletes, and budding entrepreneurs increased levels of self-confidence amongst others.  

1.) Setting goals – In sport, you will often set goals, targets you want to achieve during a season or within a specified time such as “Qualify for a major competition within the next two years” the same idea can be used within the sales and marketing industry. Setting goals is also a fantastic tool to help prevent burnout both on the field and in the boardroom.  

2.) Focus – The self-discipline that athletes gain from homing in on their craft is an excellent way of learning how to block out distractions while focusing on the skills that are most important and relevant for success.  

3.) Team players – Being part of a team provides sportspeople with the mentality that you can always win on your own, you need to make the most of others skills and move forward as a cohesive unit. There is no “I” in team. Learning how to co-exist with others, even the ones you might not necessarily like is an incredibly important life skill.  

4.) Resiliency – Learning resiliency is possibly one of the most important skills you can ever learn. Being able to pick yourself off the ground after a setback and keep moving forward, to quote Rocky: “It ain’t about how hard you hit, it’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward”. Much like sports, life will throw everything at you that is going to test your true character its those times of adversity that will define what you are made of.   

4.) Motivation – Sportspeople know that motivation is critical, particularly when the seasons have finished and keeping yourself in peak condition or while going through rehabilitation from an injury. The same can be said in the working world if you’re experiencing a slump in performance or doing a project that is particularly laborious. You still need to have the motivation to get over and push through.  

The firm is always on the lookout for individuals that possess these skills if you feel that you could make a difference or are looking for a change in a career they would love to hear from you. Along with a tried a tested development program the company can help you become the best version of yourself.
