The sports industry is one of the biggest industries in the world with a global market of $390 billion in 2020, and it is expecting to grow to $440 billion this year. This shows that sports are more than just teams competing for prestige and money. In fact, they are so impactful that can change many people’s lives only by following the same principles.
We can learn a lot of things from sports that we can use in our everyday lives, especially from the NBA, such as:
- Having a strong will
- Be a team player
- Having confidence
- Overcoming mental health issues
- And being a good leader
Having leadership skills is crucial in the NBA, especially if you want to be one of the top players in the league. With that said, the NBA can teach us many things about leadership and in today’s article, we will highlight some of the things that you should absorb from this sport in order to improve your life on every level.
Lead by Example
Being a good leader is all about taking responsibilities and holding yourself accountable before you can hold someone else. This is also the difference between a manager and a leader. Leaders will ask themselves before asking others, and managers only give out orders.
If you expect players to give 100% and always be on time, you should do that yourself. That is the best way to set an example that everyone follows. Continue reading

If you’re in business, you might be considering your options vis-a-vis payment systems. Modern-day businesses are required to keep pace with the pulse of the market. In recent months, a veritable explosion in cryptocurrency adoption has taken place. Institutional traders have poured into the crypto market en masse, bolstering substantial interest among retail traders. At one point, the market capitalization was well above $2 trillion+.
This begs the question: Should SMEs implement changes to their payment systems to accommodate cryptocurrency usage?
Modern-day payment processing solutions encompass a wide range of options, notably: Google Wallet, Apple Pay, Venmo, Square, Amazon Payments, Stripe, PayPal, NeoSurf, Visa, MasterCard, Diners Club, American Express, Bank Wire, et al.

Kimberly’s organizational culture work with us was like a journey to discover the hidden common sense shared in our organization and people across the world. Our company’s leaders successfully discovered their instinct and got much more unified as One Global Family after the journey.

As an old program manager myself, and now as President of a large technology company, I find your book spot on the money.

While your book was written for program managers, it applies to anyone who works with people. It is a mus… Read more
Kimberly delivers the goods with passion and compassion. She is a dedicated leader who achieves what at first seems insurmountable. I highly recommend this Champion of change and published author.
Kimberly had worked with the team on several occasions on project management and team dynamics. More importantly she had gained the team’s trust and confidence over the series of workshops. One of the projects did not go smoothly and Kimberly was brought in as the external facilitator in the “lessons learnt” debrief at the end of the project. We needed an external facilitator that the team trusted and could confide in. Kimberly chatted to everyone who was directly involved with the project… Read more
“This time with peers has given us time to get to know each other, laugh with each other and learn about each other. It’s hard to find that time during the workday and without the ability to have any social events, we’re lucky to be able to come together for some relaxed time together that’s not focused on the day-to-day tasks.” – Terry Duffina, Director, Sustainability
