“We’re going to turn this team around 360 degrees.”- Jason Kidd
Team building quotes can inspire and motivate your team to work together and complete tasks efficiently. Being motivated by famous business leaders, historical figures, or even professional sports players can spark the fire that is needed to get the job done.
This week’s team building quote comes from one of the best point guards to ever play in the NBA. Jason Kidd stated this when he was picked second overall in the 1994 NBA draft by a losing franchise, the Dallas Mavericks.
Although some consider his statement uneducated because if he turned the team around 360 degrees they would still be in a losing direction, I beg to disagree. I challenge those critics to inform Kidd of his “mathematical mistake” after leading his team to the 2011 championship where his return to Dallas finally brought the city its first NBA title.
However, Kidd did not achieve this alone. He had a talented team behind him and believed in what his team could do.
Kidd is ranked second all time in assists which shows his dedication to being a team player. This year, after retiring as a player, he will be the head coach for the Brooklyn Nets. Kidd will have a new perspective of the game and will lead his team from the sideline instead of contributing to his team on the court.
Competitiveness and drive allow teams to work together and achieve their common goals. TeamBonding offers many team building competition programs like the Winery Team Challenge or Survey Says that, like playing on a sports team, will involve every member’s talents. A little friendly competition is an ingredient for success!
