"Ethical values in organizations are developed and strengthened primarily through values-based leadership, a relationship between leaders and followers that is based on shared, strongly internalized values that are advocated and acted upon by the leader."

Effective Remote Teams

At Fresnel we sought to attract the best people in the world. People who were passionate about great software and who demonstrated competence in the 95th percentile. For this reason we let go of traditional local demographic thinking and searched the world for those who fit with our vision. We are applying best practice remote team leadership including: Agile process, goal and engagement focused performance management, virtual coffee breaks, open source contributions to our policy manuals and both virtual and face to face training and career development.
