What motivates you to do your best work?

My biggest motivator is having support and trust from leadership. Mutual trust has made all the difference in the world to build my resilience in the face of otherwise miserable work environment experiences.

—Brett Nemitz, Montgomery, Alabama

Being an instrument and inspiration to others so that they have infinite opportunities to learn, grow, and become. It's not about the money, the awards, or the title but about the ability to do better and become.

—Marife Mendoza, Central Luzon, Philippines

Being in a position where I am given the trust needed to innovate, where I can explore ideas and solutions without fear of failure, and where I know that my peers value my strengths.

—Jessica Szekalski, Chandler, Arizona

Continuity: the sense that my best work builds upon work done by those who came before me and the work my best colleagues are doing now so that those who follow will have something positive upon which to build.

—Paul Signorelli, San Francisco, California
