Modal helps companies develop the critical skills their employees care about with personally curated paths that give them the relevant roadmap to build their skills and advance their career.
We exist to help people learn new skills. We focus first on those skills that help organizations meet their goals, and those that help employees reach their career goals. When there are many competing priorities and difficult decisions in our business, choosing the path that optimizes for learner outcomes will usually be the best option.
We ask the hard questions - about our business, ourselves, and our collective work. We are deeply curious, challenge assumptions, believe the data, and run towards criticism.
Invested in each other
We have the privilege of building the company imbued with high trust, humility, and kindness that we all want to work for. We assume good intent in others and practice it ourselves. None of us is bigger than the mission and we behave with decency and honesty. Always.
Accountability and ownership
We get stuff done and take ownership. When we don’t know how, we ask someone who does. When there’s no one to ask, we figure it out. We take pride in our stewardship and get stuff done at incredible velocity.
All about the mo’(mentum).
We are changing the paradigm of how people learn, and on the longest horizon, how people access economic opportunity. We focus on winning the day, the week, the month, and the year... We celebrate the Mo’ because we know that once a great idea takes wing, almost nothing can stop it.
We can’t help but ask why and challenge ideas. We know that the biggest leaps in our business come from that one word question, the measurement and analysis that follows, and most importantly, the work and elbow grease required to translate an insight into a real advantage.
It’s about learner outcomes
We will always need to juggle competing priorities. Ultimate success depends on our ability to make a demonstrable impact for learners and the companies they work for. This is the first and last priority that we think about each day
High trust, humility, and kindness.
We have the privilege of building the company we all want to work for. We trust one another to do their jobs well and deliver direct feedback with each other about what’s working and what isn’t. None of us is bigger than the mission, and we behave with decency and honesty. Always.
Our grit leads to ‘mo.
We are competitive and relentlessly results oriented. We are unyielding to the struggle, and focus on winning the day, the week, the month, and the year, whatever it takes. We know that nothing is sweeter than the ‘mo(mentum) of a business hitting its stride, and that once a great idea takes wing, almost nothing can stop it. We never give up and we win because grit wins.
Accountability and ownership
We do what we say we’re going to do. We hit milestones and deliver. We’ve never used the phrase ‘not my job’, and focus on what needs to get done rather than our title or department.
