Whatever anybody says or does, assume positive intent. You will be amazed at how your whole approach to a person or problem becomes very different.
— Indra Nooyi

We demonstrate caring and respect when we give others, or the situation, the benefit of the doubt. By assuming positive intent, we open the door for better understanding and therefore potentially more successful outcomes in all our interactions. This allows us to create a respectful working environment that is fulfilling, and creates long lasting meaningful relationships.


Integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one is watching.
— C. S. Lewis

Teams and organizations thrive when they are built on a foundation of trust.  Trust is strengthened when every individual proactively takes responsibility for executing on decisions and agreements. When we keep our agreements, we contribute to building a system that is honest, ethical, aligned and energized.


Be aware of wonder. Live a balanced life - learn some and think some and draw and paint and sing and dance and play and work every day some.
— Robert Fulgham

Get Physical: make exercise a part of your life – do the things you like that allow you to simultaneously exercise your body and do something fun.

Be Connected: make friends and spend time with them. If you have a family make them a priority. Most importantly – take some time to know yourself.

Learn and Grow: learn something new, evaluate what works and what doesn’t – then stick with what works. Continuously re-evaluate – life changes. Stimulate your creative side. Be a life long learner.

Wonder: Explore your spiritual nature. Consider spirituality as an individual practice that can bring a sense of inner peace and purpose. It also relates to the process of developing perspective about the meaning of life and feeling connected with others.


The secret of joy in work is contained in one word - excellence. To know how to do something well is to enjoy it.
— Pearl S. Buck

Be in all the way. 100% is what gets our mojo rolling. So trust the magic moments when your confidence is high, your attitude is positive, your creative juices are flowing, and you are willing to tackle any challenge that comes your way. Now imagine an entire company in the same flow.  What a cool way to get work done! If you love what you do you will never need to “work” a day in your life!
