Our Team Norms:

We Are a Learning Organization
We try new things, make mistakes and learn and grow from these actions. We have a responsibility to our craft to be on our learning-edge.

We Step Up and Step Back
We encourage each other to step up, grow and take on new opportunities. We also step back in order to allow the space for others to do so. We are transparent in our expectations of others to step up or step back.

We Embrace Possibilities and Continue to Question
We have our eye on something bigger than one leader / one program. To achieve this, we have the freedom to speculate, wonder and explore. We think into possibility.

We Make Strategic Choices
We make strategic choices as an organization and as individuals. As an organization, we practice patience in the number of things we can do and the pace we can do them at to maintain productivity and creativity. Individually, we choose how we want to be in relation to the others on the team and what we want to practice.
