Damian Lillard and Leadership
Building a winning culture ground up!
One would imagine it takes a lot to win a championship. Nowadays it seems the only way to get a championship is by manufacturing a team that will produce one. All you have to do is crunch the numbers, review the data, then make the right calls and voila! You have a super team in no time. There is something to be said though for Trailblazers point guard Damian Lillard and his efforts to build a winning culture.
Earlier this month he convinced his team to give their playoff earnings to the staff altogether the team donated $223,864 to 25 staff members. Damian explained his actions saying “They have spent just as much time away from their families. So they deserve it.” Not only does this show respect for the staff that helps them win games. This action brings the best out in them. He knows this will be effective in the long run. He has also mentioned that he intends to be in Portland for his entire career. By doing this he is planting his flag and showing he is in it for the long haul!
No matter your opinion on his career or skills – these actions show he is building a winning culture that will attract other players looking to be a part of something. Then eventually this winning culture will attract a championship. Either way, this is the wake up and win mentality. So we at Revive Brand Co. Salute that!
