If you listen to Forbes, studying the teachings of the Japanese martial art Aikido could make you into a better business leader. The idea revolves around the concept of blending the energy from an attacker as opposed to resisting it. Aikido can be applied to your business in the following ways:
- Be present in the here and now for your business and its stakeholders. Do not ruminate in the past, or expend too much energy on future events that may never even happen.
- Be adaptable. Accept changes and situations rather than resisting them.
- Take accountability and personal responsibility for everything that is happening within your business.
