Teamwork Speaker

Team­work and coop­er­a­tion are two top­ics Mark Eaton empha­sizes in his  speech to help com­pa­nies opti­mize their per­for­mance and pro­duc­tion. His speak­ing pro­gram on team­work 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 and that knowl­edge helped him and his team, the Utah Jazz, become suc­cess­ful.

In the sport of bas­ket­ball there is noth­ing more impor­tant than the team and team 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 as a team­work speak­er. 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 cor­po­ra­tions and their team mem­bers how to fig­ure out what their role is and how they can exe­cute it to the best of their abil­i­ties.

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.

It is also impor­tant to com­mu­ni­cate, 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. 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 as a team­work speak­er.

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.
