What is the AQUILA Ethos?

AQUILA employees from every area of the company spent two days with a group of retired Navy SEALs to discuss leadership, teamwork and accountability. The product of that workshop is our AQUILA Ethos, which was jointly created by all employees at the workshop. Our Ethos guides what we do and how we do it, and it helps to frame decision making in both the short and long term.

 

The AQUILA Ethos

Our Ethos

I take pride in the AQUILA name. I am unwavering in my commitment
to our founding principles of knowledge, agility, passion and collaboration.

We evaluate every action with the long view in mind:
for our company, our clients and our community.

Collaboration is what sets us apart from our competition.
Through honest communication, we build relationships and trust with each other
and with our clients. I understand communication is key to both personal
and company success. Communication starts with me.

We are competitive, results-driven and fight to win at every opportunity.
I relentlessly prepare and I will not be outworked.
Yesterday’s successes are never enough.

The constant pursuit of improvement is where we find our edge.
I will always seek out new ideas and better processes.
It is my responsibility to always be learning and to share what I learn.

I do what I say, and I do what’s expected of me the first time, every time.
My coworkers will hold me accountable to this standard,
and they can count on me to do the same.

I understand every position plays an important role.
I believe that no one person’s time is less important than my time.

I succeed because of my teammates.
We are not a team simply because we work together.
We are a team because we respect, trust and care for one another
– and we have FUN doing it.
