Passion for progress
  • Our differences are our strength. Widen and mix up the pool of people you connect with

  • Make feedback positive and expansive, not negative and narrow
  • The essence of progress is that it can't stop. Grow with it and own your own progress

  • Make trust our default position
  • Hold strong opinions lightly
