Team Grapevine
The Grapevine team, September 2019

Seven key aspects of our culture support the team to perform at its best:

  • Being accountable to the people we serve
  • Freedom and trust to do what is right
  • Support to stay true to people’s dreams
  • Trust and encouragement to make decisions autonomously
  • Support to be curious, exploratory and playful
  • Modelling and transmitting our key skills and beliefs
  • Comfort with uncertainty when that’s necessary.
