This article is why it is so great to hire athletes.  They bring a different feel to the work place and the characteristics athletes have are very different from other employees.  Forbes listed six ways why athletes are the kind of people you want to have in the work place.  These six things set athletes apart from others.  They are very important characteristics.  One reason is  they have the drive to practice a task rigorously, relentlessly, and even in the midst of failure until they succeed.  If they fail they will keep fighting until they get the task done perfectly.  It is the way an athlete is wired.  They have the drive to be successful.  Athletes achieve their goals.  They have learned it is not always about working harder, sometimes it is about working smarter and they will achieve the goals they set out for themselves.  Athletes develop new skills, they can learn fast and adjust to different situations the office throws their way. Athletes are exceptional entrepreneurs; They can think strategically and are tuned in to the “big picture” and the long-term goals. They also know how to put the strategy into action.  Athletes strive for balance.  A true business athlete will respect the laws of balance in energy, health, sleep, and nutrition (as well as the business corollaries) that will allow them to succeed and to do so not only in the present but for the long term as well.  Athletes work well with partners and in teams. Athletes know how to leverage the unique and complementary strengths of each member of their team.
