T.E.A.M - Together Everyone Achieves More

Anyone who has ever been involved with a team activity - sport, work group, organization, etc. has heard the saying "There is no I in team." The catchy acronym T.E.A.M stands for "Together Everyone Achieves More."

Our final Business Principle echoes these ideas:

We foster a culture where diversity is valued, quality of life is enhanced and individual aspirations are encouraged and fulfilled.
Everyone on the team holds equal importance to the overall mission. Regardless of color, ethnicity, background, level of skills or tenure of service, everyone is encouraged to succeed and everyone adds to the total efforts.
Lou Holtz says "it's amazing to see what a team can accomplish when nobody cares who gets the credit."There is so much individuality in a real estate transaction it makes sense that we should appreciate and respect each other's differences in style, service and effort.
Each and every deal has it's own unique aspects. Each and every party to the deal has their own unique aspects. That's what makes this job so rewarding and fun. You'll never experience the same transaction twice.
How does Business Principle #14 affect you and your business? Now that we have reviewed the Vision, Mission and 14 Business Principles, will you think about how your actions will be guided by them?
I am very proud to work for a company that has committed their ideals to paper for all to see and always try to make my decisions so my actions will support these principles. Can I count on you, diverse as you may be, to support, believe in and live these principles with me?
Until next time...Build Relationships...Solve Problems...Have Fun!
