I love to ski and it’s a sport that I have every expectation of continuing into my 80s. I actually started at around age 3, and while I have had a few long gaps, I now ski every year. Last month I enjoyed a weekend of skiing in Colorado with some supplier friends and two of my coworkers. As your “Sales Coach” I am always looking for lessons to be learned from various sports and games and I found a few good ones during this trip.
Skiing is not an easy sport to learn as an adult. Maybe it is not easy as a kid either, but kids seem to be like a combination of rubber and sponge—they bounce up and soak up some more experience. Like many sports there are varying degrees of expertise, as well as some quite different styles. My coworkers were interested in improving, so they asked me for some tips and suggestions and we worked on techniques throughout the two days.
