-Be a Zealot for Growth: Solve problems and see the world through the customer’s eyes. Promote confidence and trust. Aggressively focus on new opportunities and obsess over growth. Understand what creates value for customers. Promote a customer-centric organization that has a deep understanding of the needs of our customers.

-Think Big…Then Make It Happen: Dream of the possibilities instead of limitations. Be willing to re-examine almost anything. Innovate with agility, iterate, test, try, take risks. Translate the best ideas into realistic, pragmatic, executable plans.

-Act with Urgency: Act quickly when faced with ambiguity. Get the facts that you can, think, and then move with lightning speed. Use speed as a differentiator. Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today.

-Be Courageous: Take bold action on what you believe is right. Confront problems directly and face adversity head on. Be comfortable being unpopular when required and press on. Take on seemingly impossible goals and work out of your comfort zone.

-Go Beyond: Over deliver on commitments. Be committed to putting in your maximum work effort and always do what you say. Be the someone people trust to get things done and deliver.

-Inspire Greatness: Empower, develop, and set high expectations of direct reports, peers, and others. Bring others with you, achieve things you never thought possible, and celebrate your wins.

-Become Your Best: Seek and accept feedback wherever you can get it, decide what to change, and go for it. Be curious, confident, and humble. Read others’ reactions and adjust as you go. Bounce back from disappointments.

-Be Committed: Be an evangelist for the company, take responsibility even if others don’t, act like you own this place. Be a unifier and build momentum. Speak up and let your opinion be heard, then get behind the decision. Create a positive, vibrant environment where people can do their best work. Care deeply about the organization.
