At Akili, we work hard and play hard. We push the envelope so we always know what we are truly capable of achieving. This is our core value of intensity. Bringing intensity and tackling difficult tasks is key to professional satisfaction.
Akili has created a culture that has allowed employees to bring the intensity and test their professional limits. We give ourselves challenging goals for motivation, but make a sustainable time commitment in order to achieve them.
This month, we had some Akilians share what intensity means to them in terms of their work and personal life.
- Can this be a value add?
- Does this align with SOW?
- Does this answer the question?
- Is this beneficial to this individual or group?
With this mindset I try to drive to provide the guidance or knowledge that I can bring to a given situation. When this is completed in totality it allows for me feel fulfilled in my work through applying intensity.
Since bringing intensity can boost overall motivation, we shared how we bring intensity in our personal lives as well. For example, the pandemic has allowed us to spend more time with self-improvement. This means pursuing new hobbies or placing more focus on physical health.
