McKenzie Holland: How Great Athletes are Influencing Business Professionals

California-based sales & marketing firm McKenzie Holland have long believed that business professionals can learn a lot from sports. Here the firm outline just some of the characteristics these groups of determined individuals share in common.

    ORANGE, CA, May 11, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ -- McKenzie Holland is always on the lookout for sports-minded people, as they believe their skills and mind set can be put to good use within their industry. Most people involved in sport are amateurs and do it for fun, as they're never going to make the grade to a professional standard. However, the firm believes that businesses should take advantage of this and be looking to hire these individuals as they still retain traits attractive to business environments. Athletes tend to push themselves, improve their performance, and go for the win - traits often perfect for salespeople.

About McKenzie Holland:

Here, the firm outlines some of the characteristics business professionals can learn from sports people:

Zlatan Ibrahimovic

It would be foolish to simply render the 10-time 'Sweden Player of the Year' winner as arrogant without looking at the vast amount of determination he has displayed to succeed time and time again. Having had a difficult childhood and growing up in poverty, Ibrahimovic overcame expectations and persevered to become the internationally renowned footballer that has won more than 10 league titles. In business, like in football, success depends on the quality of the people, and Zlatan demonstrates that one rising star can have a positive knock-on effect on the team. This is best illustrated through the Swedish national team - although they may not be the most renowned football nation, they have managed to qualify for the UEFA Euro 2016, thanks to Ibrahimovic's continued determination to succeed.

Serena Williams

Serena perfectly embodies the combination of talent and hunger for success. The mentality Williams displays on the court would be unequivocally valuable to any businessperson looking to progress in their career. Battling against injuries, Serena's fierce approach has helped her mount formidable comebacks, and has re-imposed her dominance in the tennis world.

Chris Robshaw

The former England rugby captain was stripped of his captaincy, and was very much the 'fall guy' for England's embarrassing early exit from the 2015 Rugby World Cup. Despite the setback, Robshaw maintained a positive and professional attitude, and managed to retain his position as blind-side flanker on the team. This sort of optimism and sportsmanship in the face of failure is an excellent attribute, both on the pitch and in a business environment. Robshaw perfectly demonstrated how to take criticism and turn it into something constructive.

Surfing, football, sailing and tennis are just a few of the sports enjoyed by the management team at McKenzie Holland. The firm believes that individuals can be trained to perform day-to-day job requirements, but argue the difficultly in altering a work ethic. Amateur athletes already have intense levels of dedication, as it takes commitment to train, and put the human body through the motions required to play sport properly week in week out. McKenzie Holland believes that this motivation can prove to be extremely useful in the workplace, and ranks ex-sportsmen and women as some of the most determined professionals they've ever seen.

With offices in Melbourne and Sydney, McKenzie Holland has become one of the most successful outsourced sales and marketing companies in Australia. Their vast experience in helping brands stand out among their competitors has raised brand awareness on their clients' behalf, and helped promote and sell their products and services. McKenzie Holland has recently expanded to California in the United States, as they continue to set a great example to other industry professionals.
