Judgement Decision Making and Judgement

  • Use good judgement and make smart decisions regardless of ambiguity.
  • When you see an issue: point out the solution, not the problem.
  • Avoid band-aids. Find the root cause to the problem – no excuses.
  • Think smarter, not harder. (What can be done at 100% now, what can be done at 80% and improved later, what can you automate, what can’t you?)

Communication Communication

  • Listen before you react.
  • If you are unsure about a project or task, ask questions.
  • Follow-up – don’t wait for someone to fail (email, email, email, slack, slack, slack).
  • Be the better person, even if you have a conflict.


  • You have to be proud of your work.
  • Don’t submit half-baked ideas, when the expectation of work quality is 80-100%
  • Be consistent with your performance each day, each week, each month.
  • Focus on results. Benchmark against yourself.
  • Avoid analysis-paralysis (don’t overthink it. You will lose every time).


  • Challenge our current brand where warranted.
  • Bring new ideas to lift our brand.
  • Get as much from Koch as we get from you (you get what you give).
  • Innovation is rewarded and recognized. Stay on the forefront of your profession.


  • We want you to learn quick and be curious about our market, our customers, and the Koch business.
  • You need to care about Koch beyond your role. This will allow you to contribute more.
  • Be passionate about your work – it will make people passionate about Koch.
  • You need to care more about your department than anyone on our team. Be the expert in your field.
  • When warranted and earned, take a break. Burning out will lead to poor performance.


  • Don’t be afraid to take smart risks.
  • Say what you think, even if it’s bad.
  • Question your actions. If it goes against our values, goals, and objectives, don’t do it.


  • Be honest, clear, and direct.
  • If you believe it, say it. No one will hold the truth against you.
  • If you have an issue with a co-worker, say it to their face, not the manager.
  • If you make a mistake, admit it quick – you will be respected for your honesty. If you don’t, we will find out.

Ego CheckEgo

  • When it comes to ideas, leave your ego at the door.
  • We want the best ideas, even if it comes from the janitor.
  • Share your information openly, key-men eventually become bottle-necks.
  • Don’t be selfish – your goal is to do what is best for your team, not for yourself.
