We know a lot about people. One of our core competency-sets is in psychology — not only the organizational kind that can be applied to working together, but the in-depth, personality and biology level — well, shrinky kind — that helps us understand what makes people tick.
As a result, we have a high level of respect for individuals and individual differences. We preserve the welfare and dignity of the people with whom we work. But we have also solved some of the dilemmas many managers have about respecting those differences while making sure the job gets done.
