  • You came along just at the right time for me Ben. Recently retired and got my pension only to find out my savings were earning nothing. Lets just say a "small" investment in you has been the difference between scraping by each week and spoiling 5 grand kids. Well worth the investment and glad to have met you. ♣♣♣ http://t.cn/A6vAMxkY

A World of Talent: What Perennial NBA Contenders Teach Us About Collaboration

  1. 1. What Perennial NBA Contenders Teach Us about Collaboration A WORLD OF TALENT
  2. 2. www.cureo.com Fast breaks! The NBA playoffs are on, and once again, the league has created one of the most entertaining spectacles in the sports universe. Ticket sales and TV ratings are on the rise. How does the world’s premier basketball association continue to deliver such a top-quality product? High-flying dunks! 3 pt. buzzer-beaters!
  3. 3. www.cureo.com It’s all about the talent. With 101 international players from 37 different countries and territories, the NBA hires talent from all over the world. NBA teams do not let geography get in the way of building the strongest possible team—and neither should you.
  4. 4. www.cureo.com If you are looking to build a team with the skills to set your company apart from the competition, consider hiring remotely. If hiring from a wider talent pool could help your business, try putting the following steps into practice: 1 Invest in Scouting 2 Communicate Team Values 3 Play Your Position 4 Share One Playbook 5 Choose the Right Equipment “The pool of available talent will always be larger if it is not limited to a travel radius around your office. Because of this, distributed virtual teams will always have the talent advantage.” —Josh Cramer, FullStack CEO
  5. 5. www.cureo.com Invest in Scouting NBA teams invest heavily in scouting. If you plan to hire remote employees, you’ll need to do some extra scouting of your own. When you aren’t constrained by geographical boundaries, you will find many more options for hiring talented employees. Look for the following qualities when searching for a good remote employee: 1. Strong communication skills 2. Comfort with internet technologies 3. Ability to prioritize time well 4. High level of self-motivation 1
  6. 6. www.cureo.com Communicate Team Values 2 When building a team that will set your company apart from the competition, talent is crucial. But talent without teamwork is wasted. Different teams have different values. Teams like the Atlanta Hawks value highly disciplined players who stick to the team’s process to get results. Others, like the Houston Rockets, encourage their team to work quickly and creatively, winning with exciting plays and out-of-the-box thinking. The best employees will be those whose values match your company’s. If you want to build a winning team, create a mission statement that communicates the core values for your team.
  7. 7. www.cureo.com Play Your Position Different players have different goals and different skills. The key is to get each player focused on playing their position—fulfilling the unique tasks and requirements that contribute to a winning strategy. In business, where focus is so crucial, team members are often distracted by communications irrelevant to their position. In order to avoid having team members out of position: ● Resist the temptation to forward messages to coworkers unless the subject matter requires their input ● Disable automatic updates or alerts unless they require immediate action ● Use communication solutions that allow you to group individuals into relevant teams 3
  8. 8. www.cureo.com 4Share One Playbook When announcers claim a basketball team “Isn’t on the same page of the playbook,” it means that their failure to collaborate as a team is costing them the game. In sports, the need to adopt one unified playbook is clearly understood. In business, we often see small companies using dozens of apps, programs, and systems to communicate plans and objectives. No wonder many teams feel they are not on the same page! Find one app or program that unifies your planning and communication needs. Your team’s harmony is worth it. ADOPT ONE UNIFIED PLAYBOOK www.cureo.com
  9. 9. www.cureo.com Choose the Right Equipment In business, as in basketball, the right equipment is crucial. If you plan to hire world- class talent, you’ll need to choose equipment that streamlines the process working together remotely. Look for solutions that bring focus to your team, and find “equipment” that features the following tools. 5 Team-based collaborationMeeting planningSecure file sharing
