Teamwork on and off the ice

0 CommentsBy


Teamwork runs deep at JLL. Collaboration among our diverse teams is a core value that shapes our culture.

Of course teamwork is a critical part of any successful team. You’ll hear it all week from the Patriots as they ramp up for Super Bowl XLIX. JLL Brokerage’s Patrick Nugent had it ingrained in him from his days of youth hockey.

Patrick was a key member of Middlebury College’s 2004 and 2005 title teams. He recently competed in the North America Pond Hockey Championship on Lake Minnetonka, Minnesota with some of his Middlebury teammates. “It was a long way from Middlebury,” he said.

Reflecting on what hockey taught him for business, Patrick said that first and foremost he learned how to be a team player. “I learned how to work within the confines of a team for the success of the team. You continue to learn as you grow and understand that what’s best for you may not be the best for everyone. That translates well into the business world.

“You have to go through some adversity along the way. I saw that at Middlebury and I see it at JLL.”
