“There is no they. They are us!”
This sentiment voiced by my colleague John at FORE Systems has always stuck with me. He had just emerged from a leadership meeting frustrated by finger pointing between departments. Team work and innovative technology propelled FORE through dramatic growth, mergers, consolidation of the Internet-telecom sector, and the occasional blame-storming session.
Collaboration and team spirit have always been a driving force for success of the companies I have been a part of. What's more, the customer success ethic, brain power and dedication of team members has been the primary force that energizes and motivates me to do my part.
It’s only fair to note that credit for the deliverables and accomplishments I highlight in my resume and the projects in my Portfolio belongs to us.
