+- _Hire and Develop the Best_
+- _Insist on the Highest Standards_
+- _Think Big_
+- prefer calculated risks to inaction (_Bias for Action_)
+- accomplish more with less (_Frugality_)
+- _Earn Trust_
+- operate at any and all levels (_Dive Deep_)
+- challenge decisions when they disagree, and do not compromise for comfort (_Have Backbone; Disagree and Commit_)
