    This is what I love about the companization in action. Frank approaches to inevitable concerns. There will be conflict, confusion. There will be growth, agreement. But it’s the passion you can’t order on demand. That has to have seeds in the professional up for the opportunity and task of joining a companization like Plantagon. Kudos to you, Hans, for setting the tone.

    “Do not apply for this job if you are afraid of:

    Not doing the right thing.
    Argue with your boss.
    Adopting to change (every day).
    Making decisions based on what you believe is right.
    Following the 7 principals of the Companization model.

    Being nice does not help.

    But we will love you anyway. :)"
