ADVENT CORE VALUES

These seven values, all 'I will be' statements, were chosen from the characteristics our team exemplifies each day. They are the standards we hold ourselves to.

I will be...

1. Tenacious

I will do what I say, and push further than others would go.  I.Get.Stuff.Done.

2. Humbly Confident

I don’t need to be center of attention or get the credit. I trust my own voice, the quality of my contribution, and our team’s experience. I accept criticism well.

3. Fiercely Creative

I use imagination and design thinking to bring bold innovation to every aspect of my work, without compromise.

4. An Intuitive Problem Solver

When I encounter a challenge or a roadblock, I’ll find a way through, around, or over it. I am resourceful.

5. Selflessly Direct

I will put the good of others ahead of my own.  I will be candid, even if it makes me uncomfortable.

6. Relationally Intelligent

I deliberately choose to care about how others are thinking, feeling, and acting— and to adjust my actions accordingly. I am empathetic.

7. Fun

I value and pursue a rich, full life with good humor. I bring joy, positivity, and energy to those around me.

Our team is a quirky group of folks and talents—we're architects, falconers, sketch artists, 3-D modelers, musicians, MBA’s, marketing strategists, cheerleaders, typophiles, contractors, craftspeople, project managers, mathematicians, meat smokers, photographers, reporters, aerial silkists, writers, actors, moms and dads. We snack a lot. We like cookie Thursday, potlucks, food trucks, all kinds of music, gifs, campy films and giving back to our community.
