We need order and flexibility, boldness and humility, caring and detachment, curiosity and wisdom, farsightedness and the ability to see what is lurking within inches. We need the courageous and the discreet, team-players and mavericks, conformists and dissenters; all rolled into one.
We need balance and the ability to detect when things are off-balance. We need action and the ability to sit still. We need "street smarts" and a sound philosophy. We need people who can cry, smile, and get angry over the right things.
We hope you have been punched in the stomach a few times, have some scars, and that you still have faith in people and systems while knowing both are far from perfect.
We need realists. Utopians need not apply.
