Competitor vs Collaborator

Published Sep. 27, 2022 relationship

For a big tennis fan like me, I thought that over the last few days, the tennis world and fans all over the world reeled with emotions over the retirement of Roger Federer, one of the finest athletes in history.

Just one facet to learn from Federer and his archrival, Rafa Nadal, is that they are able to transcend their epic rivalry and maintain a bittersweet bond and genuine friendship.

It's a good example and worthy of reflection.

How does respect inform our relationship with people?

Like sports, in business and in life, we can work together and collaborate to achieve bigger outcomes.

This line sums it up - start competing with yourself and collaborating with others.
