"I treat my managers like they are business owners, and I am an investor in their business. We agree on goals and resources and I hold them accountable for outcomes. What motivates people to tackle the complex tasks we encounter every day is autonomy, mastery, and a sense of purpose in the work.”
--Mike Baker, CEO
