What makes someone successful on your team?

Being both accountable and gracious teammate as well as being a driven self-starter. Our team is made up incredible servant leaders as well as individuals who continuously make their own paths. To be successful with Solstice New York you must have a respect for your teammates, desire to lead, and an openness to being challenged and always learning.

Nate

Strategy Principal

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

We’ve been in growth-mode a few years. While we've scaled, we’ve been disciplined about the flat structure in order to maintain a low-power-distance culture. From entry level to CEO, everyone’s roles are interdependent so their responsibilities are equally important. We know that insight and inspiration will come from every corner of the company.
