Team There is a story about teamwork that has really resonated with me and filtered how I've come to believe in the importance of working within a team environment. Here is that story:An Anthropologist proposed a game to children of an African tribe. He put a basket of fruit near a tree and told the kids that the first one to reach the fruit would get the basket of fruit to keep. When the anthropologist told the kids to run, they all took each others hands and ran together towards the tree. They sat together enjoying the fruit. When asked why they ran like that, they said "Ubuntu," how can one of us be happy if all the others are sad. Ubuntu is a philosophy of African tribes that can be summed up as "I am because we are."At the end of the day, we are all apart of the same community. Our goal as team members is to accentuate each other's strength so that we can provide the best possible expertise and service to you. Please take the chance to look over our team members.
