POUR: Our Core Values
Passion for Contribution
We have passion for life and are always looking for ways to be more helpful. We are deeply motivated by continual learning, self-discovery, and pursuing our deeply rooted passions. We believe in practicing consistency and intensity, and in creating momentum for the future. Passion can be found when we are contributing to something bigger than ourselves.
We strive for open minds, ego-less communication, and to cultivate curiosity rather than knowledge. Curiosity is very important to us, and we are always trying to “lean in” and understand the world around us. We are constantly asking ourselves why, what, and how. We believe that seemingly contradictory ideas can co-exist. We believe in a practice of intense curiosity and candor and in being courageous in speaking our thoughts and listening to the thoughts and perspective of others.
Ubuntu is an African word that we’ve interpreted to mean, “I see you, I see me, and I am because we are”. Ubuntu is about seeing and understanding yourself, appreciating and seeing others more clearly, and seeing the interconnectedness between all people. We have a deep gratitude for the strengths, differences, and perspectives of every individual, and hope they volunteer their uniqueness more frequently. We believe that people are inherently good. At Redmond, we strive to remove any friction and barriers that inhibit us from being our best selves and contributing to the world around us.
Reflect and Renew
Only through continual reflection can we get the most out of what we learn. We are constantly thinking about our experiences and striving to learn from them as we ask, “why did this work?” and, “why did this not work?”. We are always honing our talents and skills, adapting our perspectives, and embracing our discovery of self, in order to be more helpful. Reflection ties all the values together.
We also believe in practices that renew us physically, mentally, emotionally, and socially. This renewal allows us to live in a place of generosity and fulfillment and allows us to approach life from a place of fullness so that we have more to give.
We’re always on the lookout for people that resonate with our mission! Check out our hiring page for more information. If you’d like to work or partner with Redmond, reach out to us!
