OUR MISSION

We believe in the power of narrative to make change happen. It requires authenticity, creativity and hard work to translate complex ideas into accessible stories. We seek to foster the connected communities that move innovation and culture forward.


 

WE ARE A TEAM FIRST

We dig in when others need help -- when one succeeds, we all succeed. We do this knowing that how we treat one team member is how we treat every team member. We praise often and openly. We criticize kindly and privately.

 

WE GENERATE THE BEST IDEAS THROUGH DIVERSITY

We are a community where everyone can come as they are. We listen openly to people and ideas that differ from our own. It requires diversity of thought, gender, race, backgrounds and political views to get us to the best ideas.

 

WE MAKE CHANGE HAPPEN IN OUR COMMUNITIES

We understand making an impact in our communities matters to all of us. We use our voice as a force for positive change that moves the world toward equality.

 

WE HAVE ONE FOOT IN THE FUTURE

Just because something worked last year, or last week, or even yesterday, does not mean it’s meant for today. We seek innovative solutions that will move progress forward.

 

WE ARE ACCOUNTABLE

We set the standard in our work and for our community, and seek to exceed it.

 

WE ARE KIND

We work together, support one another, strive to understand and accept each other, and selflessly celebrate our co-workers’ successes.

 

WE ARE NOT ORDER TAKERS

When we know something is unfair or won’t work, we speak up. We ask and answer the questions that should have been asked.

 

WE HATE TO LOSE

We are brave enough to risk failure to win, and we learn from our mistakes.

 

WE GO TO YES

If something won’t work, we look for what is possible—for our clients and in our co-workers.

 

WE USE GOOD JUDGEMENT

When there is no clear answer, we use our experience, integrity and brains to make the best call.

 

WE DON'T CONFUSE PROCESS AND PROGRESS

We are dogged, but we understand the important difference between hard work and great results. They are not the same thing.
