600 Global in Phoenix, Arizona represents some of the biggest and most successful in their respective industries. So, it comes as no surprise that we also employ some of the best people. Our team members are competitive, driven and hardworking… and interestingly, many are former Division 1 athletes! It’s no wonder that this crew gets the job done for our clients.
Let’s take a look at why a sports background has been the perfect foundation for a business career for so many studs at our Phoenix-based firm…
Team oriented – Athletes are used to working towards a common goal as a team. They help each other, respect one another and have a sense of belonging to a group. All holds true on the team at 600 Global. While each person has his or her own goals and responsibilities, everyone is striving for larger company goals as well.
Winning mentality – If you’re competing in a sport, you’re always trying to win. In business, there’s no difference. Playing to win means taking risks, being on the offense at all times, and going for the Hail Mary when needed. These types of people tend to get things done in business and at 600 Global, and they move up the ranks quickly.
Hard working – Two-a-days… three-a-days… preseason workouts… off-season workouts… conditioning… strength training… the list goes on and on as to what it takes to compete at a high level in athletics. Someone who is willing to put in that type of effort is used to doing whatever is necessary to succeed, regardless of the ‘arena’. This is a fantastic mentality and habit that builds success both in sports and in business.
Responsibility – Being a part of team means you have a responsibility to the other members to pull your own weight. If you have ever been on a team where one person didn’t finish the drill correctly and the whole team had to run it again, you know what we’re talking about. Additionally, as a college athlete, not only are they balancing their games, workouts, and practices — but also their school work, possibly a job, and social life! Having the ability to manage all of these things truly prepares individuals for a challenging and rewarding career.
600 Global has continued to grow since our inception in 1999 thanks to sports-minded individuals who are highly competitive, team-oriented, self-motivated, hard-working, and hungry for success. Our methods are proven to work and our clients continue to want more.
