Give Yourself a Sporting Chance

I’m sure there will be plenty of people talking about the royal wedding this week.

When you get tired of talking about that, here are a few sports headlines making news. Think of this as your cheat sheet.

It’s a quick way to get up to speed on what’s happening in sports and have conversation topics at the ready.

Monday marks the start of the workweek (for most people) and before you start crossing things off your to-do list, take a few minutes to make one more list.

Make a list of people (it doesn’t have to be long just two or three people) you want to connect with this week.

It could be a new business contact or someone in your office you don’t talk to on a regular basis. Next to each name note how you plan to initiate a conversation.

I’m guessing these sports topics will come in handy.

Quick question for you – have you ever considered why your colleagues (or you, for that matter) are sports fans? Fandom isn’t accidental. There’s usually a reason. Often times it’s a connection to someone (like a family member) or somewhere (like a college or hometown.)

Sports fandom and sports talk isn’t just about the game or the headlines making news. It gives you a chance to get to know the people you’re working with on a deeper level. Use these sports topics to start conversations with colleagues this week and then try asking how long they’ve been a sports fan and why. That’s how relationships get built and work gets done.
