Collaboration: Leverage Collective Genius

Being an independent producer is what we are called to be in our individual positions, but there is a simple tweak that can make all the difference in your success in the workplace – collaboration.

We hear the cliché quotes “there is no ‘I’ in ‘team’,” “talent wins games, but teamwork wins championships,” and “you’re only as strong as your weakest link.” As overused as these might be, they are said all the time for a reason. Throughout our time in the staffing industry, one thing reigns true, year after year: together we become geniuses.

Our ICON Value this week is –


We all have different experiences in specific industries and can bring a lot to the table, but together, that’s magnified. And it’s not just represented in the workplace; it’s common in our families, friends, sports teams, and hobbies.

It’s the simplest yet profound way of life we are given: A life of togetherness.

When we represent a client in their mission to finding the right team members to grow their team, we focus on this idea of collaboration and how their team functions today and whom it will take to make that team flourish.

Today we challenge you to seek another mind on a project or idea you are working on and, together, leverage collective genius.
