Six Principals We Believe

We are fans of Ray Dalio’s book, ‘Principals’. His simplification of profound truths is relatable and more easily applicable than dense theory.

Our ‘Recruiting Principals’ are a work in progress, but we would like to share our thoughts.

  1. The right excellent people are key to productively attacking any problem.

  2. Shared standards of success are the key to successful work and business relationships.

  3. Lightweight relationships are not worth it.

  4. It is in everyone’s best interest to ask the hard questions.

  5. Each party is responsible for a good relationship.

  6. One should always ask “How can we do this better?”
