  • Live in culture: Be immersed in and inspired by culture and counterculture.
  • Set standards & break records: Strive for greatness. Don’t shortchange, shortcut, or settle.
  • Work out loud: Share your work and your POV. Create generously. Be transparent.
  • Real talk: Give direct, honest, timely feedback that meets people where they are—and helps them along their professional journey.
  • Always be learning: Run toward what you don't know.
  • Own it: Be responsible for your work, and accountable for the impact it has on other teams and those we serve. Bias toward action. Be decisive. Optimize to fail quickly, and iterate.
  • Soar: Bias toward action. Be decisive. Optimize to fail quickly, and iterate.
