Teamwork Speaker

 Team­work speak­er Mark Eaton empha­sizes coop­er­a­tion in his speech­es, which are designed to help com­pa­nies opti­mize their per­for­mance and pro­duc­tion. His team­work pro­gram has been honed from years of expe­ri­ence play­ing a team sport at the high­est lev­el. In order to reach that lev­el he learned what it meant to be a good team­mate. That knowl­edge helped him and his team, the Utah Jazz, become successful.

Know Your Job

In bas­ket­ball, there is noth­ing more impor­tant than the team and its suc­cess. In order to achieve the lat­ter, you must learn how to coop­er­ate with oth­ers and learn how to be a good team­mate. There are many aspects to being a good team­mate, which Mark talks about in his keynotes. The same char­ac­ter­is­tics that make some­one a good team­mate on the court will also make them a good team­mate in the office.

One of the most impor­tant aspects of being a good team­mate is to know and exe­cute your role on your team. Nobody can do every job on a team. That’s why there is a group of peo­ple around them who do jobs in the areas where they are not as strong. As a team­work speak­er, Mark shows team mem­bers from cor­po­ra­tions and orga­ni­za­tions how to fig­ure out what their roles are and how they can exe­cute them to the best of their abilities.

Learning a Lesson About Teamwork from a Pro Athlete

Mark had to learn his role on the team before he became suc­cess­ful. One sum­mer while he was play­ing pick-up bas­ket­ball games at UCLA and tir­ing him­self out by try­ing to run with the guards, Wilt Cham­ber­lain approached him. He stuck Mark under the bas­ket and said:

Let them wor­ry about scor­ing. Your job is to stand here, pro­tect this bas­ket, grab the rebound, and then throw it to the guards.”

That advice was a turn­ing point that helped Mark become a two-time NBA Defen­sive Play­er of the Year and an NBA All-Star. Lessons such as this are what Mark brings to the table as a team­work speaker.

Com­mu­ni­ca­tion is impor­tant, too, espe­cial­ly when it comes to know­ing exact­ly what your role is. Too often in the busi­ness world peo­ple assume they are doing things the way they should be done. It is impor­tant, for greater team suc­cess, that employ­ees ask about what is expect­ed of them. If you know what is expect­ed rather than assum­ing what should be done, your team will be bet­ter off. This is some­thing Mark teaches.

Speaking to Your Team

When you are look­ing for a team­work speak­er, there is no one bet­ter than Mark Eaton — some­one who has played a team sport at the high­est pos­si­ble lev­el. As a team­work speak­er, Mark teach­es cor­po­ra­tions that no indi­vid­ual is greater than the whole. Every per­son must be uti­lized to ful­fill their role on the team.
