    3. Treat others with respect – understand that a strong team is a diverse one;

    4. Constantly re-evaluate your role – what is the wider scope you’re working in –what is the wider goal you’re trying to reach, and how do you achieve that;

    5. Seek out smart – try to surround yourself with people who know things you don’t – whether in the existing team, in mentors, or through new hires;

    7. Enjoy your job – you’ll be here a lot, you’ll be the one dictating your commitment – if you’re not having fun, then find the solution: are you no longer happy here (fail fast) or can we pivot internally to fulfill your role.
