We value self-awareness and meaningful impact. We are open to unconventional approaches, and have learned not to judge a book by it’s cover.

Your time is your most valuable resource, so you set your hours. We do not use chat and default to zero meetings. We document everything. We expect you to go to coaching or therapy at least occasionally and adhere to 10% compound time.
