Leadership speaker Mark Eaton learned the importance of being an effective leader during his career as a player in the NBA. While a team is only equal to the sum of its parts, it’s crucial that the team is being directed effectively. Great leaders facilitate communication, cooperation, innovation, and motivation.
Mark can certainly acknowledge that all teams must draw on the strength of each individual in order to be successful. However, if the team is not being motivated to work together, they will never reach their full potential. As a leadership speaker, Mark teaches iindustry leaders how to encourage their team members to cooperate with each other.
There Are Different Methods of Motivating Your Team
Understand that every member of your team is an individual and therefore motivated in their own ways. For some it may work to give a rousing speech. Others may prefer to simply be handed a task with specific parameters and then be left alone. As a leadership speaker, Mark teaches how to identify the needs of each team member.
Finding out how to motivate your team members is only half the battle. Once you learn the best way to engage, you must then learn how push buttons to achieve optimal task execution!
Mark uses his experience on the court, in the boardroom, and in the office to show leaders how best to motivate team members.
An Excellent Leadership Speaker Proves That Communication is Key
It’s important for leaders to be able to communicate effectively in order to motivate and inspire. Being in the NBA taught Mark how to communicate with many different types of personalities. He uses that skill when he speaks; he effectively teaches that same skill to corporate leaders.
Speaking to Your Team
As a leader it is important to communicate clearly with your team in a manner that is assertive but not demeaning. This gives them a sense of empowerment and purpose. Mark shows you and your company’s leaders how to do this through his speaking program.
It happens on professional sports teams. It can happen in your business. Teamwork is not a luxury. In the world of professional sports, if there is no teamwork, you lose.
