I will run a workshop in coming days for a major African brand. The firm wants us to put its team on the path of Performance and Execution, making it clear to the team that they could win despite competition from foreign firms. We have been looking at something really positive where Nigeria is the undisputed #1 in the world, and we found one: FIFA U-17 World Cup Tournament.
In the global competition, Nigeria has won 5 gold and three silver medals holding a total of 8 medals. Brazil comes second with 3 gold, 2 silver, and 2 bronze for a total of 7 medals. From this, we will draw insights on being hungry early, executing with sparks of excellence, and then lazily peaking before the dance begins.
Then, how can teams win, win and keep winning as President Trump would like to note: we will keep winning until our enemies will be tired. Yes, you will not be the one that will be tired, of winning, but those despising your wins.
How can all Nigerians play FIFA U-17 World Cup and win in other sectors of our national existence?
We are the best U-17 team in the world. Can we boast of another area in a positive way?
