Life is meant to be lived.
When it comes to work and life, balance is the goal. Taking care of ourselves and each other is as important as taking care of business. Yes, there is work to be done. Deadlines demand our respect, and clients deserve our attention. But there is also laughter to be shared and small things to be remembered. Health and relationships to be protected, nurtured. Renew. Refresh. Refocus. These are how we make sure work completes but does not consume us.
Honesty begins by being true to ourselves.
Our goal is to create a secure and supportive work environment where everyone feels safe enough to be courageously transparent. Nothing good comes from denying who we are or what we feel. Speaking respectfully from the heart in open dialogue with clients and each other paves the way to healthy relationships. Opening ourselves up to honest feedback clears and broadens our vision.
We all deserve a chance at success.
For us, nothing is more elemental than this: Allow everyone freedom and space to succeed by doing what they do best. It is the heart of mutual respect at Maestro, and it is as fundamental as the air we breathe. Recognizing and respecting core competencies maximizes success.
Passion becomes power.
When nurtured, confidence and belief become the engines that drive change. Individual intensity blends with and adds to the collective Maestro excitement. It’s how we encourage and inspire one another and set people free to take risks, even when it involves an occasional failure.
Humility makes us all teachable.
At its heart, humility is recognizing we are all incomplete—we’re works in process. Behind each finest hour are countless teachable moments. When we accept that the words, actions and contributions of others may be just what we need to learn and grow, we are on the road to self-awareness and self-improvement. Kindness starts the process. Compassion sustains it.
None of us is as good as all of us.
Collaboration is the process of filling in each other’s gaps. When you put the right talent and environment together, anything can happen. So we don’t seek designers, writers, developers and programmers. Rather, we search for thinkers and problem solvers. Our people perform beautifully together to build the tools that help clients do the same. Creative explosions don’t happen by accident. They are the result of careful hiring, inspired collaboration and a healthy disdain for always coloring inside the lines.
If businesses had love languages, ours would be service.
Caring for each other as we do makes nurturing our clients a natural part of how we work each day. As members of Team Maestro, we are fluent in service, and we quickly pick up the dialects of individual differences and special needs. We may pronounce quality and view performance and service in slightly different ways, but our meaning couldn’t be clearer. Marked by the spirit and heart of a servant, it is the Maestro way.
Without purpose work is just work.
But with purpose, work fulfills the Maestro mission to be a force for good by building tools that help people and organizations perform beautifully. We help our community, companies and organizations nurture and increase the skills, confidence and potential of humans. We gratefully share the privilege of growing people and promise. Remarkably, effort in pursuit of a greater good doesn’t feel like work.
