“At AQai, we’re a humble and highly experienced team of good eggs.”
– Mike Raven (Co-Founder)
A NOTE FROM THE FOUNDERS
Amid technological revolution, humanity is facing a need to adapt at a pace never before experienced. For some, this creates excitement; for others (both companies and their people), this creates a deep sense of fear that they’ll become irrelevant and be left behind.
To thrive in the future, we need the ability to “unlearn,” to let go of this idea, that what got us here today will get us where we want to be tomorrow. What got past generations here, won’t get the next to where they want to be. We must adapt. And we must adapt at speed. The two of us are high adapters ourselves, known as quick-starts in the language of Kolbe. We take joy and value in improvisation, and ensure that our legacy, and those of our collaborators, lives inside the DNA of the organisation.
like a well-organised sports team.
We’ve built the tools, systems, and processes to work remotely without sacrificing who we are as social beings. With the nature of our work, we have intense sprints, but we never sacrifice the well-being of our humans.
Flexible work hours and With the right people in the right seats, each of us works in our unique ability 80% of the time. We know each other’s operating modes, instincts, and strengths, from proven data including Kolbe, AQteam, and Strengths Finder,
and we communicate accordingly to create the least amount of friction and maximum joy in our interactions.
We view obstacles as the raw material to achieve a goal and most people’s work is project and goal-orientated. It’s not about avoiding getting it wrong, but bouncing back quickly if we do and seeing failure as a blessing that fuels the journey to success.
