We not I

Take daily responsibility to make the Global Arm community thrive.

No individual owns the right answer. Brilliance is collective.

Information is crucial, share it.

Realise that we win when we collaborate — and that everyone misses out when we don’t.

Passion for progress

Our differences are our strength. Widen and mix up your network of connections.

Difficult things can take unexpected directions. Stick with it.

Make feedback positive and expansive, not negative and narrow.

The essence of progress is that it can’t stop. Grow with it and own your own progress.

Be your brilliant self

Be quirky not egocentric.

Recognise the power in saying ‘I don’t know’.

Make trust our default position.

Hold strong opinions lightly.
