Our team works extraordinarily well together because we share a similar perspective on work.
We might come from all over the world, but we all tend to be humble, independent, logical, thoughtful and autodidactic. We try to hire other people that have these characteristics too.
Possesses a modest view of one's abilities and importance.
People fail when the disparity between what they can do and what they think they can do becomes too vast. Also, humility is a prerequisite for improving.
Concerned about the well-being of others and the company as a whole.
People that put the well-being of each other first can be trusted to make optimal decisions. Inconsiderate people are difficult to trust no matter how talented because they tend to optimize for their own benefit.
Good to work with but able to get stuff done on their own too.
The best teams in companies & sports are comprised of talented people that know how and when to interact to achieve a goal.
Willing and able to learn from others and on their own.
People that are unable to self educate run the risk of eventually becoming a burden because it can be hard to place them if our needs change.
Strong decision making skills that we can trust.
Decision making skills are hard to train and responsibilities change as we grow, so we favor logical people over those who are merely experienced.
