We act like owners. We lead by example and take ownership in everything we say and do.
We’re interested. We seize opportunities to learn and participate in activities to broaden our understanding.
We create change and start with ourselves. We ask “why;” we’re open-minded and challenge the status quo.
We seek new perspectives. We’re open to input from all sources and engage in cross-functional teaming to bring fresh ideas to our business.
We fail fast and learn faster. We’re fearless; we take calculated risks and are quick to admit our mistakes.
