Information is crucial, share it
Realize that we win when we collaborate — and that everyone misses out when we don’t

Passion for progress

Our differences are our strength. Widen and mix up your network of connections
Difficult things can take unexpected directions. Stick with it
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

Be your brilliant self

Be quirky not egocentric
Recognize the power in saying ‘I don’t know’
Make trust our default position
Hold strong opinions lightly
