That means we communicate openly inside and outside our organization, nothing held back. Everyone has a voice and everyone’s voice matters. We push the boundaries of comfort and engage in difficult conversation that leads to the best answer. With everyone participating, we get to the best answers more quickly. We are a matrix of trusted peers. Like special ops, we maneuver with mutual accountability of leaders, not power or control.
In the startup world, it means less time on the facade and the politics. More time on value creation. As a culture, it means more trust and understanding and accountability across the organization… leading to loyalty and continuity.
In the personal world, it means, no assholes. A place we all love to hang our hat and do our best our best work. It won’t be for everybody, and they won’t be a part of our orbit 😉
