Obsessively profit-oriented
Key objectives are established for a reason. Words are words. Actions are actions. But only results are results.
They understand that all results should indirect/directly Increase revenue, or decrease cost. If the company is not profitable, and turn that profit into cash, then nobody wins.
Therefore, they are able to prioritize which key objectives to focus on.
And, in order to move forward as efficiently as possible, they are instinctively automation-oriented (ie software, equipment, SOPs). They hate unnecessarily redundant and manual actions.
Salary-exempt. Because no metric matters more than achieving the Key Outcomes, they do whatever it takes to get the project done. Our top players agree to be salary-exempt, in exchange for certain privileges (ie bonuses, flex-schedule, work flow autonomy, etc.)
Self-starter, Self-finisher The buck always stops with them, they are never victims and they take ultimate responsibility. If everyone in the company disappeared right now, they would still be able to start/finish any project. How is this possible?
Our top players don’t have formal certifications or PHDs. Instead, the secret is that they think in first-principles. Using simple logic, they can visualize what the desired end goal is and the steps needed to get there.
They massively research via books and Google whenever they are stuck on a step…and they always move forward.
They are always restless until they cross the finish line.
Cognizant of competence-based hierarchy. Everyone is treated with respect, but not everyone is equal. We have a competence-based hierarchy, with more rewards awarded to those who take on heavier responsibilities. Our top players are aware of their own unique strengths and weaknesses. When they are outclassed, they listen (they are not resentful). When they are the strongest, they take charge confidently but not arrogantly. As a result, our top players are able to work together during crucial moments. And they give a helping hand when they can. Our top players are learning inside and outside the job, so they can double-down on their strengths, while mitigating their weaknesses.
Emotional support is a “give-take” dynamic [aka working WITH each other] There will inevitably be stretches of time where our Top Players will feel they are alone working on an initiative. Therefore, our Top Players strive for a balance in proactively taking care of each other emotionally, so that the favor can be returned later on. At the same time, our Top Players are primarily motivated in seeing their results, and they are able to “self-validate” themselves. Finally, Top Players understand it is inevitable that they will step on each other’s toes. They sort it out, then continue forward.
Enjoy the process. They understand that huge results mean huge rewards, but also huge costs and huge patience. Therefore, Top Players push multiple initiatives at once, so they are encouraged by seeing smaller wins regularly. Top Players understand it’s a choice to make it as fun as possible.

Confidence Without Attitude We make decisions based on evidence and analysis, giving us the confidence to act with humility. We foster collaboration by building a foundation of empathy, inclusion, and trust.
Student Always We area community designed to support curiosity. We actively seek out diverse perspectives as part of our lifelong pursuit of personal an intellectual growth. There is always more to learn.
Beyond Yourself We shape our world by leading ethically and responsibly. As stewards of our enterprises, we take the longer view in our decisions and actions. This often means putting the collective good above our own interests.
