YOU HAVE BUILT UP TO 220 & NEED TO GO UP.
DO YOU... ADD A 5LB PLATE
CHANGE THE WEIGHT OUT FOR ANOTHER 45# PLATE?
We call this our 'EGO test'... What we are determining is the motivational orientation of our athlete. If the athlete feels a need to change the weights out for a 45# instead of merely adding a 5# plate, there is a good chance that the athlete is very concerned about what others in the gym might be thinking about their lifting. This would demonstrate an ego orientation and mean that much of the athletes motivational drive is coming from external sources. This can be a poor quality of motivation for the individual and as a result will not persevere well after failure.
Task orientation means that the athlete is more concerned with the successful completion of the movement and learning how to perfect this movement, than they are concerned with how they look performing the movement.
Understanding how to cultivate task orientation within your athletes will have lasting affects on both their athletic and academic futures.
It must be difficult to hire at a place like @awcanada.
Take, for example, to comically unpleasant teenager who took my order at the East Hastings location last Saturday.
Miserable? Yup. But otherwise competent--so to replace her is certainly no guarantee you'll end up with anyone better. And since hiring and training is the most expensive part of employment, well, as long as she shows up... she'll probably stay on.
Certainly, it's why independent restaurants that often offer better compensation packages, yet also demand a higher level of employee engagement, are likelier to present a more positive experience.
And really it's not a big deal. It's just a fast food joint, after all.
Oh right, the burger. It was fine. A bit sloppy on the presentation, but otherwise worth the cash. Pretty much the exact same specifics as the other Teen Burgers I've reviewed on this feed. Maybe a bit lower overall, as you can probably gauge by the image.
