Sponge Values Glossary

Word selection is everything! We have been deliberate about every single one! The goal is to be as succinct and meaningful as possible. The following is how we define specific words so we are all on the same page.

  • Genius: The active state where we’re most in natural flow (as individuals). It’s where we produce the highest value, and are most energized.
  • Play: In choosing positive emotional states such as curiosity that we can be our most creative. It’s from this state that work becomes play, and is more enjoyable for all.
  • Better: Positive improvement, either by sporadic steps or perpetually increasing.
  • Funergy: This is simply the fusion of fun and energy, born from work that is fun and energizing!
  • Ingraining: Fixing deeply into an organisation, so as not easily undone.

About “Awesomeness”
We say “awesome” a lot. That is all.
