Values: What Makes Us Who We Are

CORE VALUES = WORDS = CONVERSATIONS = DECISIONS = ACTIONS = RESULTS
Like what we stand for? Make this your everyday. Our team’s great, but we’ve got room for one more if you’re interested.
Do I or my company need a Mentor/Coach/Growth Advisor? - “Everybody Needs a Coach”
Everybody needs a coach
– Eric Schmidt, Chairman of Alphabet and former CEO of Google.
“Great coaches lie awake at night thinking about how to make you better. They relish creating an environment where you get more out of yourself. Coaches are like great artists getting the stroke exactly right on a painting. They are painting relationships. Most people don’t spend a lot of time thinking about how they are going to make someone else better. But that’s what coaches do.” – Ronnie Lott describing Bill Campbell, Coach to Apple and Google leadership teams, amongst many others.
