Cultural Traits common to all OYO Leaders:
Dealing with Ambiguity and Adaptability – we are a large, but fast growing company today with not enough existing process or rules of engagements; and environment changes rapidly due to new businesses, geographies and strategic partnerships etc. You need to be able to create organization out of chaos, operate in an environment with minimal structure and adapt to change quickly while maintaining high velocity
Ownership – anything between you and your job is also your job
Bias for Action – speed matters a lot, so does quality. Ideal leader will be pragmatic, action oriented and know the right balance between competing priorities
Hunger to change the world – you need to be ambitious and willing to do more. If you believe you have already achieved your best and primarily looking to impart that vast knowledge, we aren’t the right place for you
