If you don’t know about the awesome Blackhawk team, then you’re missing out on some pretty great people. Don’t worry though, you’ll get to know us in the many more blogs to come!

How do we work so well together? How do we get along? How do we have fun? Here’s a sneak peek into our most recent adventure – Hardcore Mini Bikes!

Looks like fun right? We definitely enjoyed some quality team bonding time together. However, although we like to have fun, we also value our interpersonal communication in the office. So, we spent an hour sitting in a conference room having an open conversation about what values matter most to us. Here’s what we came up with…

Accountability: We do what we say we’ll do and hold each other accountable for our responsibilities.

Commitment: We never give up on each other no matter what. We are a support system for one another and will give everyone the benefit of the doubt.

Awareness: We are aware of our team’s values, strengths, weaknesses, and skillsets.

Honesty: We don’t lie to each other, and we value forgiveness. Simple as that.

Loyalty: We protect the mission of our company and stay loyal to our core values.

Respect: The golden rule is slightly flawed, so we made a couple of tweaks. Treat others the way they want to be treated.

Humility: We are all willing to fail. We don’t have too much pride and accept when we’re wrong. We listen. We ask questions.

Be a Warrior: We’re fighters. We’re opinionated. We fight for what’s right and what’s in the best interest of our clients, our company, and ourselves.

Confidence: Don’t be afraid to make mistakes. Take initiative. Trust your team. Trust yourself.

Move Fast: Perfection is the biggest killer of productivity. We don’t worry about being absolutely perfect. We focus on speed and edit the details as they come.

Encouragement and Reassurance: We show thankfulness to our team. We praise our team. Most importantly, we provide redirection instead of blatant rejection.

These interpersonal values and group norms are what we expect of ourselves and our colleagues. They demonstrate the number of ways we work together to create a company that strives to be the #1 place to start your career.  By sitting together and having a group conversation about these norms, everyone has a chance to offer their input, and they become more important to establishing the culture of our agency as a whole.
