You need to have a bias for getting things done
We value authenticity because we need to stay real
We all have different strengths that we bring to the table, and we need to work together to appreciate and leverage those strengths

We need to be able to take the complex and distill it into simple and succinct messages
We value humility; there is no room for egos here
