Built on values

We’re building a culture at Breathe around three values that define who we are and guide how we behave. But values are only worth having if you’re willing to be held to account so I want this post to publicly encourage everyone one in #teamBreathe to hold me to account as I won’t always get it right.

To be part of Breathe means striving to live up to these values:

People First – I treat everyone with respect and always walk a mile in their shoes.

Growth Mindset – I take responsibility for my personal and professional journey by seeking to continuously learn and improve.

Can do – I take a pro-active approach to my work by demonstrating energy and enthusiasm in everything I do.

These values help us take difficult decisions and guide the way we interact with our colleagues, customers and suppliers. Their strength comes from the fact that they require thought to apply and are not easy to live by. We are the first to admit that we don’t always get it right but, true to a growth mindset, we try to learn from our mistakes and do better next time.

Our hope is for Breathe to become a showcase for how we think businesses should be run and to inspire others to follow and do the same. The feedback we’re getting and the awards we’re winning suggest we’re heading in the right direction.
