Does the hol­i­day sea­son and end of the year crunch to hit num­bers raise the stress lev­el of your team?  If so, you’re not alone.
For­tu­nate­ly, there is a way to relieve that stress, ral­ly your team, and help oth­ers in the process.
Dur­ing my first few years with the Jazz, our coach and GM Frank Lay­den required us to attend numer­ous char­i­ta­ble func­tions and out­reach pro­grams. He did this for three rea­sons. First, it increased our vis­i­bil­i­ty and brand recog­ni­tion dur­ing a recessed mar­ket. Sec­ond, he want­ed to help the play­ers under­stand how for­tu­nate we were to play in the NBA. And third, he want­ed us to learn to serve oth­ers.
Whether it was help­ing chil­dren at ele­men­tary schools or vis­it­ing a prison, Frank took great pride to ensure we were a fran­chise who gave back to our com­mu­ni­ty.
It wasn’t always easy or con­ve­nient to spend so much of our time on these events when our job as bas­ket­ball play­ers had an exhaus­tive sched­ule of its own. How­ev­er, the result of that time spent togeth­er, serv­ing our com­mu­ni­ty, was noth­ing short of remark­able. We always felt bet­ter after going. Those expe­ri­ences bond­ed us like no time on the court could. We became much clos­er as team­mates and friends.
Over the past 30 years, many of my fel­low team­mates and I have cre­at­ed non-prof­it
orga­ni­za­tions and per­formed ran­dom acts of kind­ness that have ben­e­fit­ed thou­sands of peo­ple in our com­mu­ni­ties. Frank’s ear­ly ini­tia­tive and vision was the cat­a­lyst which inspired his play­ers to con­tin­ue good deeds to this day.
Ser­vice is a stress reliev­er! Try it with your team. Imag­ine the impact you could have.

Action Step

Do you have a favorite char­i­ty? Cre­ate a ser­vice project or fundrais­er that ral­lies your team togeth­er! Sched­ule a Spring project with Habi­tat for Human­i­ty or some­thing sim­i­lar. Many cor­po­ra­tions and asso­ci­a­tions add a ser­vice project as a core part of their annu­al meet­ings. Com­ing togeth­er for a com­mon cause will increase rap­port, improve morale and cre­ate endur­ing rela­tion­ships.
