Leadership Principles & Culture:

  • Builds Teams: Leads the work of hiring and promoting bar-raising talent. Responsible for employee development, even when it means moving people to other areas to help them grow.  
  • Thinks Big: Sets ambitious and audacious goals and is willing to consider boldly different solutions to achieve them. 
  • Insists on High Standards: Recognizes that yesterday’s extraordinary is today’s ordinary.  Identifies and articulates high standards and pushes themselves and the teams to reach them. 
  • Bias for Action: Recognizes that most decisions are not one-way doors and demonstrates strong bias for speed, but makes decisions and acts with the speed that is appropriate to the circumstances. 
  • Builds Trust: Establishes trust, even with those who think differently. Actively listens, seeks to understand, and is kindly candid in conversation. Humbly owns mistakes, even when it’s uncomfortable. 
  • Goes Deep: Understands the details and audits frequently. When inconsistencies exist between expected results and anecdotes, tenaciously digs into why. Rolls up their sleeves and do what’s needed. 
  • Has Conviction: Insists on having the conversation “in the room” and actively participates, even when it’s exhausting. Does not capitulate for the sake of consensus, nor “pocket vetos” decisions.  Fully committed once a decision has been made. 
  • Delivers Results: Leaders identify what needs to be accomplished and deliver quality, timely results. When setbacks occur, leaders persevere and overcome. 
  • Is Right, A Lot: Most decisions and suggestions prove to be correct, given a situation’s context,  when judged over time. 
  • Apolitical: Embraces and supports Nerdy as an apolitical company and recognizes that we can have the largest impact if we are united in our focus on helping people learn and not divided or distracted by advancing unrelated causes.
