Building Teamwork

March 1, 2019

Vince Lombardi said teamwork was…

“Individual commitment to a group effort — that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work.”

Many famous coaches and company leaders agree that teamwork is vital to success.

The two youngest members of The Fiduciary Group, Ernesto Montes and Bess Butler, play in the Savannah Adult Soccer League at the Savannah soccer complex for their team The Wet Bandits. While the soccer field and office are distinct settings, they can draw parallels in the skills required to succeed. Two skills that can be found on winning teams are communication and specialization.

On the field, communication is key to optimizing the positioning and decision making of the team. In the office, effective communication allows everyone to collaborate and complete tasks efficiently. Effective communication stimulates team growth through shared knowledge and creates an environment where everyone has a voice. Working as a team on both the field and in the office allows everyone to reap the benefits.

There are many different positions on a soccer team and each position caters to the individual skills. The Fiduciary Group operates in a similar fashion. At the firm, there are various areas of specialization such as trust administration, investment management, and financial planning. By playing to these strengths of our team members, we can better deliver reliable financial services that cater to our client’s unique needs.

At TFG, we are grateful to have 13 team members with experience, skills, and comprising various advanced degree. We believe our broad expertise and collaborative thinking results in teamwork that successfully fulfills our clients’ needs and hopefully the occasional soccer championship as well.
