  • We hear every voice. Inflated egos don't last here, humility does. So, if you share credit and ensure that the best ideas win – regardless of who they come from…you belong here.
  • We own it. If something needs doing, we do it. So, if you focus on the outcome, and take initiative to get it done…you belong here.
