THE ACCOUNT DIRECTOR SHOULD ALIGN WITH OUR KC VALUES:

 

  • We’re passionate: We are in this business because it is our passion. We care about doing the right thing, making our clients successful, and learning new things to be better at what we do. We don’t let our passion get in the way of empathy and understanding where others are coming from.
  • We’re collaborative: Great ideas come from contributions of all. We are a team and use “we/our” and not “I/my.” This means being respectful of differing points of view, being confident yet humble enough to say we don’t know the answer when we don’t.
  • We’re curious: We are curious about the world and think it is ok to ask lots of questions. We like to learn about our client’s businesses to understand their challenges. We learn by being good listeners.
  • We are bold thinkers: We like to think about what hasn’t been done before. We are curious about new ideas and new ways of doing things. We like to break the mold. We win or fail together, not alone.
  • We are no BS: We’re straight talkers and speak the truth with clients and KCees alike. We believe BS gets in the way of simplicity, and simple is always better than complicated.
  • We’re persistent: We don’t stop until we find a way through the BS to the right answer. We do what we can to solve every problem the best way possible. We are respectful of “no” but can always ask why?
