Trust enables courage, openness, and a willingness to make mistakes, paving the way to sound decision-making and powerful, informed actions.
Our thoughts and actions come from a place of curiosity and transparency. The key to good collaboration can be found in constructive freedom of speech, free and fair expression, and the sharing of information and knowledge.
We focus on long-term goals – putting them ahead of short-term successes. Flexibility and stability are in balance. This ensures that relationships with partners and colleagues improve steadily over time.
We show ourselves as we are. We are aware of our impact and act in keeping with our individual character, convictions, and values. Unique and genuine. Credible, sincere, and appropriate.
We start with why. Purpose helps us do the right things well. It serves as our motivation, helping guide and define our work at AEB.
Love it, leave it, or change it. We bring our full power to bear by actively taking part in discussions, giving constructive feedback, and confidently assuming responsibility.
