The Invictus Group, Inc: 2017 Q4 Leadership Award

At The Invictus Group, Inc (Cherry Hill, NJ) leadership is not only one of our core values, but a practice that we develop every day within our team. There is not just one thing that makes you a great leader; it’s not a job title, it’s not a “born attribute”, it’s a multitude of things that you have to be conscious of, and work on, day in and day out, that will make you a great leader. There’s a quote by football player J.J. Watt that says, “success is not owned, it’s leased, and the rent is due every day,” and we feel the same way about leadership!

invictus group incEach quarter we award one of our employees with the highly sought after “top leader pin.” There are many things that go into the selection for this recognition, but for Q4 2017, it was handed to Jeffrey (Jeff) Murtha at a regional event in Philadelphia. The best part? Jeff has only been a part of The Invictus Group, Inc team for six months! It’s a perfect example of the no seniority principle that we abide by and proof that if you want something bad enough, and are willing to work for it, you can achieve it!

 

Jeff came to The Invictus Group, Inc with a degree in Marketing and Management from Penn State and lots of experience in the hospitality industry. He worked at Langhorne Coffee House as a line cook and kitchen manager for five years along with Adventure Land Day Camp as a climbing specialist & archery specialist. After graduation, and transitioning into the business world, we asked Jeff what the best piece of advice he has received so far was, and this is what he said:

 

 “Take notes on everything and review them daily.”

invictus group incSeems pretty simple, right? Well, that’s just the thing. Being successful, or not, isn’t necessarily complicated, it’s just making the decision to apply the advice that’s given and do things, consistently, that other people are not willing to do. Clearly, it’s paying off for Jeff! He went on to explain what it means, to him, to be a great leader:

“Being a great leader means doing all the right things and leading by example.”

This is just the beginning for Jeff, but an important step in his career at The Invictus Group, Inc. According to him, his motivation lies deep within to continue to push himself to the limit in order to live a lifestyle of his choosing. And we cannot wait to see where that will take him!

The Value of an Internship at The Invictus Group, Inc

The Invictus Group, Inc (Cherry Hill, NJ) welcomes interns with open arms! Why? Because we have a burning passion to help support entry level professionals who are trying to find their way in the business world. Through hands on experience, coupled with guided mentoring, we set up our interns for long-term success!

Samantha Vella, a Senior at Chestnut Hill College, is studying BusinThe-Invictus-Group-Inc-samess Administration and Management. She spent the summer interning in the Human Resources Department of The Invictus Group, Inc, directly under Managing Director, Lauren C. Throughout her experience, Samantha was able to gain hands on experience in her field, while providing a ton of value to our team. In just a few months she vastly improved her communication, time management and organization skills. Working with our Managing Director, Lauren, also proved to be extremely beneficial and the duo was able to accelerate the growth of our company.

“Sam was extremely hardworking and always got the job done. I could always depend on her to make sure things ran smoothly in the office if I was out or got backed up with my own work. Her friendly and sweet personality made anyone who came into the office feel extremely comfortable. She also loves her wings! (referring to chicken wings after work with the team – a weekly ritual at The Invictus Group, Inc) And not to mention, Sam is an identical clone to “Sloane” from the movie, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off!” – Lauren C. Managing Director at The Invictus Group, Inc

Although we are sad to see Sam, and the rest of our awesome interns from the summer head back to school, we feel great that they are going back a little more prepared! To hear more about their experiences interning with our firm, check out these videos!

Top Performers at The Invictus Group, Inc Attend Atlantic City VIP Weekend Event

A few members of The Invictus Group, Inc team had the opportunity for a fun-filled weekend recently in Atlantic City! The weekend is dedicated to the on-going development of industry professionals, primarily in Managerial roles, but also allows for up-and-comers to be invited on a case by case basis. In addition to networking with and learning from top performers from around the country, attendees were also treated to some fun VIP experiences around the city. Our very own Dawid Stelmach was one of the few to attend this awesome event and he took some time to share with the rest of us, his experience in AC!

Invictus-Group-Inc-AtlanticCity1The weekend began at Resorts Casino Hotel where meetings were held in the afternoon. Top performing Managers shared their best practices and strategies for growth. “The meetings were great,” said Dawid. “Two things that I really enjoyed was learning more about the legal side of running a business and hearing practices to grow and develop an office.” When the meetings concluded, the group met up at restaurant on the bay called the Wonder Bar where they had the chance to mingle and bond a little bit with each other.

Saturday morning the whole group met at The Landshark Bar & Grill. A section of the beach front bar was reserved for them and the food and drinks were all covered! The afternoon was spent relaxing before heading out on the town later that evening. At the Providence night club in the Tropicana Casino & Hotel the group was treated to their own VIP area with bottle service.

After a VIP experience in Atlantic City, Dawid said the best part was being able to reconnect with colleagues that he helped coach and mentor at The Invictus Group, Inc in the early stages of their careers who now work in a different market. “One is an Assistant Manager and one is close to becoming one,” he told us. “It feels great to see how much they have grown since they have started,” added Dawid.
