Winning is good for the team
Mar 25, 2009Posted by admin

I learned early on that it feels good to win.  And the secret is that it is easier to win as a team than to win as an individual.  What I have learned and what I try to communicate to my professional team as well as young salespersons  beginning a life in commercial insurance is that sports teaches us is the importance of the team.  Sure it’s great to score that goal yourself and hear the crowd applaud your effort, but in the long run, it’s the final score that counts.  Did we, (not I) win the game.  This concept of team comes usually comes later, however my epiphany to this crucial idea came early  when I experienced first hand how important my team mates were to me as friends as well as sports comrades.  This has been my philosophy over the years and continues to provide the reference in my pursuit for professional development and marketing excellence in the field of insurance.  Yes, I would rather have an assist than a goal and this is one of the items where Everything I Ever Needed To Know About Business I Learned On The Sports Field!
