I regularly talk to people before classes start at the gym. People share new classes they are taking or like, upcoming special offerings, and trends in apparel or conditioning.
Every now and then, someone will remark that they don’t get much of a workout in particular classes. Sometimes I agree, the class isn’t that tough. Other times, I’m surprised as most people thing the class is really hard. And that’s when I notice the people making the comments are hardly moving. They aren’t actually performing at the same level as the rest of the class.
The same thing happens in business. That’s why getting an accurate read of performance is critical to long term success. High-performing companies and individuals have dialed in the right metrics to judge their performance. How are you getting an accurate view of performance in your company?
