Being open.

We’re transparent. We make ourselves accessible to each other. We share work with each other while the clay’s still wet.

Building trust.

We’re accountable. We do what we say we’ll do. We share successes and failures. We learn from mistakes without assigning blame.

Focusing on impact.

We concentrate our efforts on tasks where we add the most value. We trust colleagues to apply their expertise to our shared goals.

Going big.

We have a big, bold, far-reaching vision. We’re not intimidated by complex challenges. We’re excited by them.

Winning together.

We put the good of the team ahead of our own egos. We have each other’s backs. Always. Under all circumstances.

We don’t want to brag, but…
