The Atticus Creed for a SuCitta Warrior

We pledge:

An insatiable appetite for constant growth; to act with purpose; to be accountable in all things; to be emotionally invested in the outcome; to be an agent of change, not a bystander; to ask, listen and then monetize; to shatter norms that stand in the way; to prioritize needs efficiently; to work towards not just my success, but that of my team; to keep a sharp eye for detail; to be committed to continuous education and improvement; and to do everything in my power to accomplish the mission.
