RELATE - Care, Serve, Trust, Laugh

Chris Taylor, November 15, 2021

I recently took the Gallup Top 5 CliftonStrengths Assessment and was surprised that my top strength was Relator. I was shocked because I'm very goal oriented, many times at the cost of stepping on others along the way. This is something that I've been working on over the past few years. Maybe this is a sign that I'm making some progress?!?

Computer geeks (like us) are prone to think we're smarter than everyone else. It's easier for us to push someone out of the way and do it ourselves instead of working with others to get something done. We've decided that this is wrong and want to be better than that. The truth is that we can't accomplish anything significant without relying upon each other, leveraging each other's strengths to offset our own weaknesses.

This is why we've decided we chose RELATE as one of our core values.  We believe that the only way to effectively learn how to rely upon each other is to build a community that is based upon trust within our company and also with our customers. For us, this means we try to care about each other, serve each other, trust each other, and laugh with each other.

We don't just want to do great work. We want to play our part in fostering relationships that allow us to reach beyond our individual abilities.
