Professional Values

My professional true north. On any given day one or more of these living, breathing values steps up to guide me.

  • Look where you want to go.
  • Serious play brings about new answers and better questions.
  • Documentation is a key institutional knowledge resource.
  • Serve each task to make progress today (perfection is the enemy of progress).
  • Concise and open communication.
  • Work smarter not more, pause. Listen.
  • Collaborate—without people data is not information.
  • Active listening. Ask. Look. Write.
  • Test. Get business done. Manage risk. Iterate.
  • Persuade yourself first then others. Perception is a tangible and powerful truth.
  • Give and receive specific and actionable feedback graciously.
  • Lead from any chair.
