Our Culture

We believe that enduring success is achieved through inspired, ethical leadership – regardless of tenure, job function, or position in an organizational chart. LRN’s culture is the end result of this belief—an environment created by a group of ethical leaders sharing core values and governing ourselves in pursuit of our goals.  As the basis of our shared values, the LRN Leadership Framework – which we invite all of our candidates to consider –defines, galvanizes, and unifies our culture.  It inspires and informs our conduct, whether we're collaborating with colleagues or partnering with clients.  At LRN this isn’t just talk; we aim to attract and hire people who share our core values, and value our mission.    

When considering a position at LRN, ask yourself: 

  • Am I passionate about inspiring principled, ethical performance? 
  • Am I committed to constant learning and evolution? Do I want to be stretched – both intellectually and in scope of responsibility – and operate outside my comfort zone?
  • Do I find fulfillment in the impact work is having beyond day-to-day tasks?  
  • Do I seek to understand not just what does and doesn’t work, but why – and how to make things work better? 
  • Do I value integrity, humility, passion and truth in the workplace? Am I dedicated to fostering an environment of respect, collaboration, transparency and success? 

If so, we’re very much looking forward to meeting you.
