“We're open because that's how much we believe in volatility; we want to help develop the industry. We're very transparent and believe in the product, not just our approach.”
Maintain exceptional standards and support one another to achieve them.
“We encourage people to own their mistakes. Many people associate mistakes with weakness, but I believe that owning and understanding them takes the stress out of your position and is very liberating.”
Build trust by delivering results with objectivity and humility.
“We acknowledge that we are going to make mistakes, but we have the humility to take pause, deeply analyze and learn from those mistakes, and that is a key driver to our success.”
