Akili Core Values Series: Intensity

 

By Shannon Bachar | Social Media & Content Specialist

Intensity: Work hard. Play hard. We push the envelope so we always know what we are truly capable of achieving.

At Akili, we don’t believe in comfort zones.

And honestly, that can be said about everything we do. Step inside our office for a day and you’ll see how we define intensity, because we don’t use that term loosely.

You’ll see our employees doing what we do best, turning data into information and knowledge. We’re always looking for new and better ways to compete like never before, with our clients at top of mind. It’s one differentiator that we take great pride in.

In my own work, I am often presented with turning around a proposal deck in a matter of days to meet the time frame of a client. This requires me to step up my performance to bring our brand to life and create something of value for our company. Being on the frontlines of change with my position gives me a true challenge, and makes me feel accomplished with all that I do. I think that’s something all of us employees feel at the end of the day.

We’re able to maintain our intensity at work because we play hard, too. We allow ourselves the chance to recharge so we can continue to perform to the best of our ability.

Our CEO recently challenged us to a 30-day burpee challenge to keep us moving during the slow, ‘dog days’ of summer. Whenever I stopped by the gym after work, I would see some fellow Akilians breaking a sweat to get their burpees in.

Why? Because we love to compete. We embrace intensity.

Each year, we also team up to run the Dallas marathon, and not because we have to. We do it because we want to. There’s no better feeling than the sense of accomplishment after going the extra mile (literally).

Chat with any of our employees about their hobbies and you’ll hear anything from climbing mountains to jiu-jitsu to running hundred-mile races. I couldn’t make this up.

These are the kind of traits that inspire me in work and play. These are the kind of people I want to surround myself with.
