It Takes a Team to find Success

“Individual commitment to a group effort – that’s what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.” Vince Lombardi  I don’t know that I’ve ever met anyone who has made it through life completely alone.  Even though a country might have one leader, he does not rule alone.  A company has […]
