Our Values

Build Trust

Trust is a feeling that comes from common values and beliefs. Trust is about having each others' best interests at heart. Trust builds confidence to take risks and experiment.

Be Authentic

Treat all with respect and equality but speak the truth even if unpleasant.

Rise Above the Merely Necessary

Free your ingenuity and imagination to tackle challenging and rewarding problems. Pursue maximum engagement. Eliminate the tedious and unproductive in enabling inspired collaborations and outcomes.

Take Responsibility

Never blame others. Always take ownership and look inwards at what could be done differently next time.

Create Intimacy

Eliminate heirarchy.

Take Smart Risks

Be constantly curious for better ways to do things. Balance exploration vs exploitation of new knowledge.
