Leadership Philosophy Common Values and Leadership Behavior Ði is committed to quality service, customer satisfaction, and environmental and economic sustainability. Our company is determined to provide its customers with consistently easy-to-use, efficient, low-impact transportation. Ði achieves this by upholding its core values: responsibility, integrity, fulfillment, hard work, and collaboration. Trust and respect are additional values that are vital to our business model. Ði's leadership team reflects these values through their actions and expects the same high standard from their employees. Our leadership team is respectful, accessible, and open to receiving customer feedback. Leadership behaviors include leading by example, showing up day-in and day-out, always giving maximal effort,
working with enthusiasm and passion for biking and creating a greener world, and talking to all company employees as equals and with respect. All employees, regardless of ranking in the management structure, are human; they are more than a product of their work. Leadership's Attributes and Contribution to Success Our leaders are the driving force behind this company and directly contribute to the success of Ði's mission. Although all employees contribute to its success, the leaders are the backbone. They were the brains behind company creation and continue to work to help the business grow and evolve. They also ultimately have the final say in decision making, many of which have direct impacts on business. Five words that describe Ði's ideal leader are trustworthy, conscientious, effective, steady, and responsible. These attributes are a reflection of company values. Decision Making Decision-making should follow the rational decision-making model, time permitting, and is a collective effort. Ði's leaders partake in participative (democratic) leadership where all levels of management collaborate to make decisions. Ultimately, the store manager has the final say, but not every little decision must be run by that individual. The coordinators also have a substantial voice in the company and are in constant communication with their employees. Ði is starting out as a relatively small company, so it isn't unreasonable to get input from all employee members. This is situation based (not all company decisions are appropriate to share with everyone), but Ði is a strong believer that giving employees a sense of autonomy is fundamental in maintaining a healthy company culture. Leadership and Company Growth Leaders grow by remaining open-minded. Hearing employee and customer feedback, whether it be positive or negative, is essential for growth. They all possess technical, human relations, and conceptual skills, but are always working to improve upon them. It is detrimental to get caught up in the "leaders know all" mindset. Employees' and customers' differences in backgrounds grant them unique perspectives and ideas. This diversity is crucial in terms of keeping business model evolution active and not stagnant. Accountability At Ði accountability looks like showing up to work everyday and giving it your full effort. It involves being responsible for your actions and encouraging others to remain responsible for theirs. Ði expects high levels of accountability from all staff members. Lack of accountability will be addressed by respective managers and could result in removal from the company. Talent Management Strategy Đi has a simple division of employees among positions in the company. There will be one management position and two coordinator positions that oversee the storefront and handle the
