Culture

Our Culture Principles

We Value Each Other

Coleman invests in you, you invest in our clients, our clients invest in the market. In the end, it's all about growth. We value what you have to offer. This is a learning company, and we want to teach...but we also want you to teach us. We are here to support each other as much as possible to hit our personal and professional goals. We provide feedback in pinches rather than crunches, because we invest in your professional growth. We believe in our people and their long-term success. Whether it's within our company or beyond, we believe in you.

We're Driven to Constantly Improve

We face challenges, puzzles, obstacles...it's up to us to get creative to figure things out. We give you the resources but need your help to find the best solutions. Leverage the opportunities in front of you to explore what excites you, build valuable skills and benefit clients. Learning is something that happens everyday. So we encourage you to be better than yesterday, but not as good as tomorrow.

We're Accountable for Our Actions

Mistakes are ok, but excuses are not. We learn from our mistakes and move forward. We are a team which means we celebrate successes and overcome losses together. When things go poorly, we all look in the mirror and we don't play the blame game. We hold each team member accountable for the success of the group. We encourage you to speak up and put forward your best ideas. It's required to help make us all better. Have a sense of ownership for your team, clients and work.

We're Empowered to Share Our Ideas

We may not be here forever, but we hope our inventive ideas will be our legacy. Do something that matters while you're here. Good ideas can come from anywhere. Everyone has a voice at the table. We don't believe in 'facetime' but doing the actual work. Team success matters more than hours. So use your best judgment.

We're All Professionals

We dress and conduct ourselves for the job we want, not the job we have. We don't use the phrase "that's not my job." We do whatever it takes to be better for our clients. Just be nice to each other, it's really that simple.

We're Relentlessly Client-Focused

"How do we add value?" This is the question we ask ourselves everyday. It's our North Star. Adding value is a constant pursuit, and we do it by empowering our people to do what is right for the client. We are driven to help businesses do business better. Teamwork makes the dream work. We put the client and the team ahead of our individual success. We focus on what our clients need, not on what our competitors are doing. We favor long-term relationships over short-term results.
