Because while we are a growing team, the culture is our foundation — the byproduct of each team member. The Web3 space has some unique cultural dynamics (often front end loaded incentives, decentralization, etc), and, in our view, it’s important to be mission-driven and establish the optimal culture in order to drive long-term impact.
We are working on a massive opportunity. To achieve our mission, we must establish a culture of constant growth that maximizes the potential of each team member, generating the collective momentum necessary to rise to this timely occasion.
To create this culture, we effectuate several core tenets:
- Find people who believe in our mission — to Deliver Real Estate to Everyone
- Establish ambitious goals and work collaboratively to achieve them
- Create trust through autonomy and personal accountability
- Encourage risk-taking; “failure” is just experiential learning
- Instill open and transparent communication — the bedrock of team cohesion
- Advocate for inclusivity and equality; we believe organizations that are fluid and nimble are the most successful
To that end, we aim to nurture two flywheels that are interrelated. First, we are seeking great people; empathetic, low-ego, collaborative, inclusive, mission-driven, and willing to tackle difficult challenges. If we continue to attract great people, we will foster our great culture and develop a great platform.
Second, we start to spin the execution flywheel. Some of our ethos is derived from Ray Dalio’s Principles, in which he outlines an optimal flywheel. In short, find great people (who are driven by tackling huge challenges) -> set big goals -> execute & work tirelessly to achieve these goals -> success -> setbacks & calibrate -> learn -> set higher goals.
It’s about finding growth in ourselves and each other, where it is never a culture of competition but a culture of collaboration, an energy that drives us forward together. Cultures that are founded on a growth mindset attract more great people, which is fuel for the flywheel. Parcl’s flywheel is firmly intact, and it’s our mission to maintain that momentum!
