What Michael Jordan said about his team

Michael Jordan (“MJ”) was a professional basketball player in the NBA. He played for the Chicago Bulls team for many years and later, the Washington Wizard. Quoting from his biography on the official NBA website: “By acclamation, Michael Jordan is the greatest basketball player of all time.

It’s not easy to remain reach the apex. It takes talent, skills, and diligence. Plus, a growth mindset helps. But MJ has this to day about enduring success. This is what he said:

In basketball, you need a team to play and to win. This applies to our work and personal life. Even when you ‘work alone’, your team is made up of people and resources that help you be more effective and efficient. It can be someone in your professional network, your family members, or your suppliers.

Having a team does not mean there will be teamwork. Do you know what your role is and how you can contribute to a winning team? Do you know their strengths and weaknesses?

Leadership plays a major part in creating a safe environment for everyone to work together; for ideas to thrive and for people to excel in.

I have been blessed with great team members. We come from different cultures, have different personalities and even have differences in opinions. Despite that, we always have the eye on the championship and back each other up like a tag team. I am a freelancer now. I cannot help but miss my team members. If you are reading this, let me say ‘Thank you for having my back! You were all the wind beneath my wings.
