Our People

Core Behaviors

Our people display five core behaviors that, in combination, distinguish us from other companies:

 

Total Discipline

We display extreme consistency of action – consistency with values, goals, performance standards and methods. We are utterly relentless in the focus on our quests. Total discipline often means being nonconformist. We are determined and resilient.

 


 

Research Driven

When faced with opportunities or uncertainty, we rely upon direct observation, practical experimentation, and direct engagement with tangible evidence.

 


 

Creative and Pragmatic

We make our bold, creative moves from a sound empirical base. We favor empiricism as the foundation of decisive action.

 


 

Execution with Skill and Urgency

We maintain a continuous sense of urgency and are hypervigilant to opportunities, threats and changes in our environment. We manage risk and channel our efforts into proactive action, developing contingency plans, building buffers and maintaining large margins of safety.

 


 

Grit

Our obsession with generating lasting value and overall excellence enables creative action and unlocks the power of our passion and perseverance.
