“When a team takes ownership of its problems, the problem gets solved. It is true on the battlefield, it is true in business, and it is true in life.” – Jocko Willink
Leadership and ownership go hand in hand. By accepting responsibility for a project, you become the person who takes control of its development. At PCI, we encourage this growth mindset. Taking on a certain task becomes an opportunity for us to carry it out as we see fit, to really put into practice what we stand for and express our creativity.
We all want to work for a company that takes ownership very seriously. And here at PCI that’s all we do; we own up to our strikeouts and our mistakes by solving the process not the problem. By having a global perspective, we are able to improve the whole and not only that one aspect that was not working properly.
As a team, we understand that end results are directly linked to our personal efforts and our decisions. For our team to succeed, we each need to show up and take ownership over our tasks. “We also celebrate our victories loud and proud and usually with some ice cream. A great place to work is a place that is transparent in their communications and honest in their ownership. And a great place to work is here at PCI,” Brittany Angus, PCI Associate, says.
