A Folio employee will strive to ensure not only their own success, but also the success of their customers – internal and external.  They will consistently give credit appropriately, and have a true desire to see others succeed as much as if not more than themselves.  They are excellent listeners, seeking collaboration to find mutually beneficial outcomes.  They are flexible and open to change and new ideas.  They are always seeking opportunities to learn, grow and develop their own skills and knowledge.
