The “R” Factor

Tim Kight, Focus 3

The “R” Factor is a key performance resource built on a simple, powerful equation:
E (Event) + R (Response) = O (Outcome).

The performance of your business is determined by how people manage the “R.” The key to producing outcomes is not the events or circumstances that people encounter, but how they choose to respond. 

Tim worked with The Ohio State University football team to solve this equation, which resulted in the Buckeyes winning the NCAA title in 2012. Copies of “Above the Line: Lessons in Leadership and Life from a Championship Season” will be available for purchase. All proceeds benefit the SIMA Foundation.
