Your success is my success. AOEU team members focus on what we have (abundance) versus what we don’t (scarcity). We assume the best in each other. We lift each other up and celebrate team successes. We rally for the betterment of the mission, regardless of job description. We know delivering on the mission today is the best way to achieve success tomorrow.
AOEU team members are trusted to do great work and consider feedback a gift. We give and receive timely feedback using Radical Candor: Caring Personally while Challenging Directly. We provide feedback in the future tense, focused on opportunity and growth instead of blame and shame. We demonstrate professional maturity by talking with each other, not about each other, and exhibit integrity in all interactions.
As part of a remote team, AOEU team members must be effective transparent communicators. Communication creates trust, and lack of communication creates fear. When in doubt, we over-communicate. We proactively pick up the phone, leave our cameras on, and meet in person when possible to strengthen our connections. Great work never excuses poor communication.
In order to fulfill our mission, AOEU team members are flexible and adaptable to the rapidly changing reality around us. What got us here won’t necessarily get us there. AOEU team members are at their best when they’re doing work they love: work they’re uniquely skilled at. We know that striving to find our perfect fit within the institution is the key to long-term success and happiness.
AOEU team members have a growth mindset. We have never “arrived.” We have our own areas of expertise but are always seeking new depth and breadth of knowledge. We utilize the AOEU Lifelong Learning Fund to grow our skills and gain new perspectives. Learning is both formal and informal and is shared openly with the team for all to benefit.
AOEU team members embrace responsibility and ownership. Our ownership mindset drives us not to fulfill the expectations of others but to fulfill the mission. We exhibit a strong bias for action and carry out the “see it, own it, solve it, do it” cycle successfully. We see leadership as a mindset, not a job title. We don’t let roadblocks stop us. When in doubt, we ask for forgiveness, not permission.
AOEU team members know business can be an incredibly powerful way to positively impact the world. We add value to society by serving art teachers and fulfilling the mission, and only then will we achieve sustainability and growth. We are not a traditional university. We are not a public school. We are not a cutthroat business. We are a unique hybrid learning-institution, paving a mission-first path toward success.
Personal well-being is vital to our success in both work and life. AOEU team members don’t see work and life as a scale that can be balanced. They recognize that a rising tide lifts all ships. Success at work gives rise to success at home. Success at home gives rise to success at work. Our work gives us essential purpose and meaning, but it’s only one piece of the puzzle to true fulfillment.
AOEU is an equal opportunity employer. All aspects of employment are based on merit, competence, performance, and institutional need. We proudly welcome prospective and active team members as unique individuals with dignity and respect. We do not discriminate or offer preferential treatment.
