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.
