Our Culture

Moving forward as a team – day-to-day behaviours

  1. Being on time: Do I respect my teammates time? Was I in the office and did I sign on before 9:00? If I was invited to a meeting, was I there on time or did I make my teammates wait?

  2. Work Ethic: Did I do my best today displaying my Integrity? Was I responsible in the amount of work I was able to accomplish? Did I produce Quality work? Was I a Team Player? Are my 8 hours good 8 hours?

  3. Effort: Am I the type of person who turns my Effort switch on and off? Did I do my best today or did I just do the bare minimum? Do I try my best and do my best?

  4. Body Language: Does my body language relate to my team that I am confident, energetic and willing to take on tasks, or do I give off a vibe of insecurity, unhappiness or laziness?

  5. Energy: Do I allow my productivity and attention span to drop due to my lack of energy and rest? Do I approach challenges and opportunities with enthusiasm?

  6. Attitude: Was I a positive role model to newer members of the team today, or did my attitude demotivate my team? Did I treat everyone in the office with respect? How much did I smile today? Am I grateful for being surrounded by talented, passionate people?

  7. Passion: Do I love what I do? Do I want to constantly improve myself? Am I waiting to do something that I like doing, or am I giving my all to every task assigned to me? Am I enthusiastic?

  8. Being Coachable: Do I want to improve my contribution and be able to do what it takes to perform as a team player? Do I always think I'm right, not willing to change and learn better methods? Do I listen? Am I humble enough to change?

  9. Doing Extra: Do I ask my team what I can do to help them? Could I have spent a bit more time extra, or did I switch off after delivering the required 8 hours? Do I own my responsibility?

  10. Being Prepared: Do I know exactly what I want to accomplish when I sign on at 9:00 or do I waste time and productivity at work "winging it"? Did I waste time by not being organized? Do I have a week plan? Do I have a day plan? Do I have a to-do list?

  11. Focus: As a team we need to be productive and not allow distractions to rob us of valuable time. Know your priorities and stick to them. Own your work. Own your mistakes. Learn and Grow.

  12. Kill interruptions: Allow your Teammates to be productive, not disrupting their thinking patterns and workflow. Try to find a solution, or part of the solution, on your own before asking for assistance. As discussed, we don't wait at GoMetro for things to happen for us. Work on the solution but if there is no other choice, ask for assistance to get yourself back on track.
