Our Core Competencies
Our core competencies are EEC's key behavioral differentiators that keep us ahead of the competition and make EEC a great place to work.
Start with the customer & work backwards. Work vigorously to earn and keep customer trust. Pay attention to competitors, but keep obsessing over the customer.
Deliver Quality Results
Focus on the key inputs for your business and deliver with the right quality and in a timely fashion; despite setbacks, rise to the occasion and never settle.
Plan Strategically & Think Big
Begin with the end in mind. Generate insights that most others fail to have. Ability to identify patterns & connect different pieces of information. Envision a desired future & transform vision into clear goals, objects, and action plan. Think Big; thinking small is a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Search proactively, both internally & externally for knowledge and learning opportunities. Anticipate and address capability gaps in yourself, in people and in systems to prepare for future challenges. Recognize exceptional talent & willingly move them throughout the organization. Develop leaders & take seriously the role of coaching others.
Invent & Simplify
Expect & require innovation & invention from the teams we work with & always find ways to simplify. Be externally aware, always look for new ideas from everywhere, and don’t be limited by “not invented here.”
Bias for Action
Speed matters in business. Many decisions & actions are reversible & do not need extensive study. Value calculated risk-taking & deal with challenges as opportunities to create winning changes. Proactively help remove obstacles rather than becoming one.
Lead with Ownership
Leaders are owners. Think long term & don’t sacrifice long-term value for short-term results. Act on behalf of the entire company, beyond just their own team. Never say “That is not my job.” Envision the future, engage relevant stakeholders, enable others by removing barriers, energize through inspirational leadership & execute flawlessly.
Accomplish More With Less
Accomplish more with less. Constraints breed resourcefulness, self-sufficiency, and invention. There are no extra points for growing headcount, budget size, or fixed expenses.
Partner & Earn Trust
Collaborate enthusiastically to build long-term work relationship & trust; seek win-win solutions. Listen attentively, speak candidly, and treat others respectfully. Be vocally self-critical even when doing so is awkward or embarrassing. Benchmark yourself & your team against the best.
Leaders Are Right, A Lot
Leaders are right a lot. They have strong business judgment & good instincts. However, actively seek diverse perspectives & work to disconfirm their beliefs. Explore the untapped idea/perspective bank around you.
