企业需要从NBA总冠军身上学什么?

Ed Frauenheim 2016年04月14日

金州勇士场上场下那些滑稽动作实质上体现出融洽的队友情谊,也教给企业一课,如何让员工在激烈竞争的环境下建立高度信任。

 


2015年夏季,金州勇士队夺得美国NBA2014-15赛季总冠军。这支建队40年来首度夺冠的职业篮球队将成功归功于战友般的情谊和团队精神。

金州勇士队和以往那些NBA总冠军有点不同,这不仅仅是因为他们是新冠军。无论哪个比赛日,这支球队的队员看上去都像一群兴奋玩闹的6岁孩子。球员们说,欢乐融洽的氛围是队伍的核心实力,也是他们成功的主要原因。

金州勇士场上场下那些滑稽动作实质上体现出融洽的队友情谊,也教给企业一课,如何让员工在激烈竞争的环境下建立高度信任。

企业文化顾问及研究机构Great Place to Work发现,全球最适宜工作的25家跨国公司里,员工队伍拥有愉快又包容的团队精神很重要。这25家公司包括互联网巨头谷歌、酒店管理公司万豪国际集团等。这些全球领先的公司无不显示出,团队精神是实打实的竞争优势。

我们进一步研究了金州勇士队的表现,想看看他和这25家最佳雇主还有什么共同点。以下是归纳出的三点规律:

1、共同奋斗 乐在其中

金州勇士队队员热爱在一起打球,这种参与团体比赛对抗的快乐可以转化为巨大的能量,以及充满创造力的团队。最近一场比赛中,在送去妙传帮助队友德雷蒙德•格林成功上篮后,前锋安德烈•伊格达拉兴奋地在场上跳起来。正是由于保持轻松愉快的心情,金州勇士队能在23分的大比分差距下反败为胜。假如企业的氛围极为严肃又死气沉沉,员工的活力、创造力和生产力都会打折。

2、互相关心

金州勇士队的队员像家人一样彼此相处融洽。前锋马利斯•斯贝茨称:“这是一种兄弟情。我们支持所有场上的队友,无论是打30分钟还是2分钟,每位场上的队友都得到大家同样的关爱。”这种集体关怀体现了该队主帅史蒂夫•科尔的核心价值观:快乐、同情、专注、竞争。在企业里,如果能增进同事之间的关系,可以激励大家更投入地为实现公司的目标而工作。

3、合作是关键

金州勇士队的每位队员都天赋过人,却能将团队的利益置于个人荣誉之上,这种精神帮助他们上个赛季问鼎NBA冠军,本赛季也处于领先地位。每位队员的无私付出为全队创造了开阔的得分空间,提高了命中率,让队伍百战百胜。职场里很难找到这种忘我的团队精神,但这种精神是许多企业成功的关键。

想在商界找到更多类似金州勇士队这种团队精神的例子,不妨浏览《财富》网站的网页fortune.com/camaraderie,这里首次公布了50家员工关系最融洽的公司榜单。评选这一排名时主要参考了员工的反馈,主要衡量员工眼中的企业友好和有趣程度,以及员工在工作中对合作的同事信赖程度。

本赛季开赛以来,金州勇士队连续24场获胜,直到12月中旬才首尝败绩。惊人的连胜记录不仅创下了NBA史上最佳开赛战绩,也让金州勇士队超越了1884年职业棒球赛上的圣路易逃亡黑奴队,获得美国主流职业体育赛事里的最佳开局。这是巧合吗?相信不是。

There’s something different about the Golden State Warriors—and it’s not just because they’re the current title holders. On any given game day, the Warriors can seem like a pack of giddy 6-year-olds. The players have said that their playful bonding is central to their basketball prowess—and a major reason for their success.

The joyful sense of camaraderie at the core of the Warriors’ on- (and off-) court antics can offer lessons to companies about how to build a high-trust, competition-crushing culture. Great Place to Work has found that a fun, inclusive community spirit is important to employees at the World’s 25 Best Multinational Workplaces, which include Google, Marriott, and H&M. These leading organizations show that esprit de corps is a hard-nosed business advantage. So we took a closer look at the Warriors to see what else they might have in common with the world’s best employers. Here, three rules to follow:

Have Fun

The Warriors love playing together, and that exuberance translates into high-energy, creative teamwork. After passing to teammate Draymond Green for a layup in a recent game, Warriors forward Andre Iguodala danced crazily down the court. By staying loose, the Warriors overcame a 23-point deficit to win. At companies with super-serious, dreary cultures, employee energy, innovation, and productivity can suffer.

Care for Each Other

The Warriors love one another like family members. “It’s a brotherhood,” according to Warriors forward Marreese Speights. “We support every guy that steps on the court, whether it’s 30 minutes or two minutes. Everybody gets the same love.” The collective care reflects coach Steve Kerr’s core values: joy, compassion, mindfulness, and competitiveness. In business, deeper connections among co-workers can translate into greater devotion to the organization’s mission.

Cooperation Is Key

The Warriors each have impressive talent, but they put aside personal glory for the good of the team, which topped the NBA in assists last year and is leading again this season. Individual unselfishness—which generates open, higher-percentage shots—is making the team richly successful. It’s rare to find egoless teamwork in the workplace, but it’s a key part of many business success stories.

For more examples of companies that exemplify the Warriors’ sense of community, check out our first-ever list of the 50 Best Workplaces for Camaraderie at fortune.com/camaraderie. The ranking takes into account employee feedback and measures how welcoming and fun companies are to all employees and the extent workers say they “can count on people to cooperate.”

The Warriors began this season by winning 24 games before recording their first loss in mid-December. That impressive winning streak not only set the NBA record for best start to a season but also put the Warriors ahead of the 1884 St. Louis Maroons baseball team for the best season beginning in any of the major U.S. professional sports. Coincidence? We think not.
