December 04, 2019 - Martin Daum is a die-hard basketball fan. As the CEO of a global company, he sees similarities in business and sports and often the same basic principles of leadership, team work and performance. In this episode he meets Terry Stotts – the NBA head coach of the Portland Trail Blazers.
This year coach Stotts is currently in his eighth season with the Blazers based in the northwest of the United States. Previously he worked as a head coach and assistant coach for five different NBA teams – including the 2011 NBA champion Dallas Mavericks.
Terry Stotts and Martin Daum discuss the parallels of coaching a NBA team and running a business. For example, why do you need both a strong bench and stars who can make the difference? Coach Stotts also provides some insights on what he tells his team in a timeout or during the halftime break… and what made Dirk Nowitzki a unique leader.
