I believe in trusting people to do what they were hired to do, and then some. I believe in Kerth’s Prime Directive: everybody does their best with what they have available.
I believe in excessive communication, especially in distributed teams. I will share all available and relevant information as often and as widely as is feasible.
I believe that it is my responsibility to ensure that everybody is able to showcase and further improve both their personal and technical skills and abilities.
I believe that a motivated, psychologically safe and well-equipped team with a shared goal can solve any challenge they set out to accomplish, and solve it well.
