Wolf Academy is more than just a company. It is a community of people from different countries, cultures and backgrounds coming together to transform Ireland’s education.
We aim to create a system of education that inspires and empowers people to live happier and healthier lives, become their true selves and achieve their ultimate vision.
Wolf Academy’s audacious mission means we have different rules for how we approach our work.
The quality of people working for Wolf Academy is the reason we are able to achieve our extraordinary mission. People who join Wolf Academy must be ambitious, self-starters who are looking to make a genuine contribution to the lives of others. Just as wolves derive their strength from the pack, Wolf Academy derives its strength from having a diversely skilled team of people working together as one unit.
At Wolf Academy we always put our own people first. We believe that if we look after our people, they will feel valued and understood. Once the needs of our team are met they will be much better equipped to look after our customers and carry out our mission.
We are a tightly-knit team and we do not ask anything of others that we would not be prepared to do ourselves. To incorporate this, once a month all directors and team members will engage in cleaning duties together.
All of our business decisions will be made out of love, not fear or ego. We make pricing and product decisions based on how we can give the most value to our customers while helping them commit to their transformation.
If a particular customer cannot afford our programs or courses but we believe they will benefit from them we will work with them to negotiate a price that they can afford. We will not allow money to get in the way of helping someone who needs it.
We believe in the importance of diversity and treating everyone with the same respect and dignity regardless of background or status. We employ people from different countries and cultures as well as different industries and educational backgrounds. We hire people based on character traits, passion for our mission and our belief in their suitability and potential for a specific role. Formal education can be a bonus but it is not as important as passion, creativity, open-mindedness and a strong desire to help others.
We will remain true to our word. This means fulfilling any promises made to other members of the team and customers as well as all contract agreements. If we say we are going to do something, we do it.
5. Honest and Effective Communication
We will ensure honest communication at all times with all team members and other relevant stakeholders. We believe honesty in all matters leads to effective communication and trust among team members, customers and other stakeholders.
We believe in the importance of creating strong communication channels between all members of the organisation. We believe so strongly in the importance of effective communication among team members that we will incorporate routine feedback sessions each week and more in-depth individual feedback sessions each month. This is to ensure no small problems or grievances build up overtime causing harm down the road.
6. Thinking Big
Shooting high and failing will be rewarded. 50% of our business goals will have a 50% chance of success. Our overall mission should always be just out of reach.
We prioritize growth on an individual and company basis. We invest in the growth of our team members in both their personal and professional lives.
Each person is assigned a life coach upon starting in the company and they will have monthly meetings to keep them on track. We also invest in the growth of our business teams, our methodology and every other aspect of the business. If we are not growing, we are dying.
Any day-to-day or team level decisions will be made by the team leader or the person in charge of that particular area. The only exception is for strategic level business decisions which will be made by the executive members. For example, if the company wishes to move in a different direction in order to best achieve its mission the board may get feedback from team members but the ultimate decision on what to do lies with the board.
We are a task-oriented company so if someone completes their tasks for the week they can leave early or even take a day off. Team members will have autonomy over their work schedules once targets are being reached on time and work is to the expected standard.
9. Humour and Joy
We promote humour and fun in the office. If the office environment becomes dull or serious then we are doing things wrong.
Wolf Academy will be a place where people can be themselves and express themselves while also getting their work done. Happy people are the best at what they do.
We encourage team members to think unconventionally and outside the box. We take nothing for granted and we are always open to being wrong. We continuously look to come up with unique solutions to problems and new and better ways of doing things
