About The Program

Join us online for our virtual meeting!

You’ll learn all about balance. By creating a solid foundation, it helps you grounded. As a boxer, when you keep your balance, you are strong, and it will be difficult for anything to knock you down. If you take this idea with you into your daily life it means when you keep your balance and you lead a balanced life, even the hardest times won’t knock you down. Your reactions help determine your success. In the boxing ring, while you may not be able to take control of a situation, you can control how you react. Boxing relies heavily on your reactions, if your responses are slow you will *allow* your opponent to win. Attitude is important, in both boxing and in life. The way you react to success and failure and other hardships in life define who you are. Don’t let your emotions get the better of you, boxing teaches us to stay cool under pressure.

Fighting Instincts to Succeed in Business and Life. Using boxing as a metaphor to understand, prepare and respond to situations can provide a greater level of clarity, and maybe even a little solace.

Key Points:
Know your opponent
Can you take a hit?
Find a good coach
Have a game plan, and adjust when necessary

All successful boxing matches—just like strategic plans and annual goals—necessitate thoughtful and focused planning. In boxing, this means having a strategy and adjusting. Skillful planning requires flexibility. Know that your opponent has a plan, and think through what their approach might be before heading into the ring.
