Behaviors: -- Approach problems with humility, rigor, and decisiveness. -- Demonstrate a high emotional quotient and empathy for your colleagues, creating psychological safety while tackling tough problems and navigating conflicts. -- Identify and solicit input from all stakeholders, balancing competing needs and distilling a coherent strategy. -- Lead by meeting people where they are at and building bridges to where you need them to go. -- Emphasize iterative progress, risk management, and delivering value. -- Leave the campsite cleaner and people stronger.
