Success Statement

I am motivated by Freedom and Uniqueness, I work in Freeform and Decisive ways, and my ideal work allows for New Solutions and Variety.

Why did I join Humantelligence?

It's all about values, motivators and trust. Humantelligence is a cadre of some of the most talented people in the world who share some similar values and motivators. We’ve all impacted and worked with the top 20% of the population in our varied careers, and we now have the opportunity to engage with the other 80% and give back, in a sense. To help create happier workplaces for the single mom or dad working several part-time jobs, to help them feel more engaged and energized during their workday, so that they can share some of that energy with their kids in positive ways.
