“My goal – in life and in work – is ‘be better, do better,’ which means being able to recognize and understand that other folks are going through their own things. Our culture here at Thought Industries is so open and welcoming, so we’re able to develop these meaningful relationships with other people even though we’re remote. Being there for each other – and not judging – allows this sense of community to be even stronger.
I had always been ashamed of my dyslexia and ADHD, and I would rarely tell people about it. My first manager here, instead of looking at it as a negative thing, showed me an online tool to make things easier and simpler. I was amazed – here was this executive I had just met, offering me a tool to allow me to bring my work to the team in a better way. Allowing people with different abilities to use these different entry points opens a company up to so many skill sets, and a new kind of success.”
