Career lessons from parkour

For most of us, parkour is a way of life. We’re used to looking at the world a little differently.

For a group of business students who visited the Chainstore recently, it was a brand new experience that offered lessons on community, risk evaluation and – of course – how to look at obstacles:

“Business is full of obstacles – and it can be easy to give up.  But the most successful business people keep a positive attitude and figure out a way to overcome obstacles.  When my students were faced with the wall obstacle, many did not think they could climb it. But with some coaching – and watching how others attacked the problem – every student who tried made it over the wall. There is certainly a business lesson in that story, right?”

Parkour truly is for everyone from all walks of life. Read more about what the students learned in sportscareers.about.com.
