Engage in constructive conflict and get all ideas out in the open at the start of a project. Treat others respectfully and embrace new perspectives with an open mind.

Bitmovin
Innovate relentlessly.

Seek to learn continuously and cultivate a culture of innovation and curiosity. Adopt an always learning mindset and flex your idea muscles often.
