As sales and marketing agency Credico South Africa celebrate the success of its Soccer team Credico United, the company has looked into the relationship between sport and business success, and how the skills that lead to success in each field are closely connected.
The month of June has been hugely positive for Credico South Africa’s Soccer team, Credico United, with the side making significant leaps towards a successful season. Kicking off the month, the sales and marketing agency’s squad won their first game against the Reds, scoring an impressive 12 goals in the opening game while also welcoming a new addition to their team. Sailing through to the second game of the season, Credico United went on to win again, with the agency’s General Manager scoring a significant goal and contributing substantially to the side already hitting the charts at this early stage of the season.
With the agency’s team flying high, Credico South Africa is adamant that their winning streak is a result of their love for the game, and the skills they have learnt working in the sales and marketing sector. The agency is confident that the skills needed to succeed in sport overlap those that lead to business success and is sure that possessing these skills is giving them a fantastic advantage over the competing teams.
Credico South Africa is a community of ambitious professionals, all of which have invested heavily in building their skill sets to reach immense success. This same winning mentality has been put into practice on the pitch and helped the Credico Untied players to focus on perfecting the skills needed to win and dedicate their time and energy to forming an unbeatable team.
The agency believes that possessing core business skills such as the ability to perform under pressure, being goal orientated and having resilience when faced with challenges is also having a significant impact on Credico United’s success so far this season.
‘Our industry is highly competitive, and it takes dedication and passion to succeed. These attributes transfer perfectly to the sports arena and are driving Credico United’s success.’ Outlined a spokesperson for Credico South Africa. ‘What’s more, practising these skills on the pitch will help our players to become even more focused and competitive in a business environment, and will have far-reaching benefits across the organisation, which is something we are incredibly excited about.’Back to all News
