Trust is our lifeblood. We believe that “humans are good-natured at the core.” Trust has a cycle: When you trust people, they in turn trust others and the positive cycle frees our mind to be more creative at work. Express your trust in others first to start the positive cycle.
Before forming an opinion about anyone, seek to understand them. When unsure, give the benefit of doubt and ask questions.
Choose to do what's right even when it is not "easy" or "simple." When in a dilemma, ask yourself, "What is the right thing to do?" The answer will come from within you. Have the courage of your convictions, and make decisions for Cactus Venture Partners as if you are making them for yourself.
Don't compromise long-term goals for short-term gains. When you do the right thing, you inspire trust.
Every story has more than one side. Seek out other people's perspectives and offer yours in return. The more varied the perspectives, the greater is the chance of making the right decisions. Speak up. Offer your ideas freely, express your doubts openly, and share your feedback constructively.
Listen to others in the way you want to be listened to, with respect and without prejudice.
Happiness is a journey, not a destination. There will always be a trough after a peak. Stay passionate about what you do, and you will sail through tough times more easily. And while you are at it, take good care of your health and well-being.
Celebrate each milestone. Take time out to appreciate people you like working with, those who add value to what you do. Most importantly, enjoy every moment and spread the joy.
