“When your values are clear to you, making decisions becomes easier.” —Roy E Disney
Our number one goal is to improve the lives of our students which means we make choices that create long-term value for students, especially when selecting our partner schools.
We are smart about moving fast but also understand that there is no one-size-fits-all decision-making process.
If a decision is reversible, we act swiftly.
If a decision is irreversible, we act methodically, carefully, and with deliberation.
We plan and build for the long term.
Learning the right skills can change someone’s life. We embody this by always striving to improve.
We’re not afraid to try new paths and solutions.
We challenge the status quo and are not afraid to have our own points of view challenged.
Collaboration and Trust
We trust each other - and ourselves - to get things done together. We earn that trust by being communicative, transparent, and collaborative.
We respect people’s time and opinions.
We celebrate our wins and own our mistakes so we can get better next time.
Ownership and Perseverance
It’s never not our problem.
We always try and do the hardest thing on our list first, because chances are it’s the most important.
Some days will be great and some days won’t, we’ll figure it out together.
Honesty, Transparency, and Integrity
We value transparency and open discussion - no bad questions, no topic off limits. We’re here to grow Climb, and sometimes the uncomfortable discussions are what help us grow.
We share feedback honestly and openly.
We act with integrity by doing the right thing, even if it's not easy.
People make the company
We are our company, and our growth is the company’s growth.
We strive to build the best conditions possible for all of us to work together effectively.
We keep it fun. We’re solving a large, exciting challenge. Problems are solved when people are genuinely excited by the process of coming up with the solutions.
