Our Culture

Traive is our culture:

Power is gained by sharing knowledge, not hoarding it!

Dharmesh Shah

In dreams, begin responsibilities!

W.B. Yeats

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.

Mark Twain

Learning and innovation go hand in hand. The arrogance of success is to think that what you did yesterday will be sufficient for tomorrow.

William Pollard

Visionary builds what dreamers imagined.

Toba Beta

An empowered organization is one in which individuals have the knowledge, skill, desire, and opportunity to personally succeed in a way that leads to collective organizational success.

Stephen Covey
