We're here because of our why

The most extraordinary people in the world today don't have a career they have a mission. We're with author and TED speaker Simon Sinek on this one – people don't really care what you do they care why you do it. At Mindvalley we constantly remind ourselves of our company mission: to revolutionize learning experiences and education systems worldwide.

We really like personality

The Mindvalley team is made up of international talents that were hired firstly for their attitude. While we do put a high value on skills and experience we believe that – as proven by legendary American author Zig Ziglar (of Born To Win and Better Than Good) in one of his famous company studies – a majority of the attributes that make up the perfect employee are in the attitude category. So our rule of thumb for recruitment? Hire for attitude, train for skill.

We are Brule Breakers

We have all grown up with limiting rules and beliefs to simplify our understanding of the world – everything from people, love, and success to the way life works – handed down from generation to generation. We call them bullshit rules, or Brules. At Mindvalley, we encourage everyone to question their belief systems and redefine life, happiness and success on their own terms, by choosing ideas and values that fulfil them and rejecting the ones that limit them.

We operate by a code. An awesome code.

It's important to have strong values leading a team and a company, just as it is for an individual. Mindvalley works (and lives) by the Code of Awesomeness, which enlists the 10 values we have collectively voted for – such as the importance of integrity, gratitude and taking responsibility for our words and actions. This is reflected across the board, behind decisions we make with our teams, our businesses, our authors, our partners, and our customers.

We celebrate our awesomeness. Weekly

Every week, we gather the entire team for our Awesomeness Report – an hour of celebrating weekly achievements, expressing gratitude, updating everyone on latest company decisions, and highlighting remarkable performances. This isn't just an opportunity to celebrate, bond and keep afloat of what's happening. It also creates contagion (read on, we're getting somewhere) – just as people inherit and transmit behaviors, emotions and beliefs through social contagion, this also applies to positive influence, including innovation, ideas, praise and great results.
