Throughout my career as a professional basketball player in the NBA as well as my career as a leadership speaker I have learned the importance of having a strong and effective leader. Leaders can facilitate communication, cooperation, innovation and motivation. While a team is only equal to the sum of all of its parts, it’s crucial that the team is being properly and effectively directed.
From my years in the NBA I certainly can acknowledge that all teams must draw on the strength of each individual member in order to be successful. However, if the team is not being pushed in the right direction or motivated to work together they will never reach their full potential. As a leadership speaker I teach industry leaders how to get their team members to work together and communicate in a productive and profitable fashion.
For motivation it’s key to understand that every member of your team is an individual and therefore is motivated in their own personal way. For some it may work to give a rousing speech while others would prefer to simply be handed a task with parameters and then be left alone. As a leadership speaker I will show you how to identify how each member of your team is motivated to do his or her best work.
Finding out how to motivate your team members is only half the battle. Once you find out which method is best for engaging and incorporating the individuals that you are trying to lead now you must learn how push their buttons in the correct way so that they can take off! As a leadership speaker I can use my experience on the court, in the boardroom, and in the office to show corporate leaders how to motivate their team members in the best way possible.
In order to motivate and inspire members of a corporation or group it’s important for leaders to be able to communicate effectively. Being in the NBA taught me how to communicate with many different types of personalities. This ability translates well to my career as a leadership speaker and as a leadership speaker I teach corporations and their leaders how to learn this skill as well.
As a leader it is important to communicate clearly with your team in a manner that is assertive but not demeaning. This will give them a sense of empowerment and purpose. I will show you and your company’s leaders how to do this through my speaking program as a leadership speaker.
It happens on professional sports teams. It can happen in business, in your business. Teamwork is not a luxury. In the world of professional sports, if there is no teamwork, you lose.
