Acknowledgments

Finally, it’s important to acknowledge that we’ve drawn inspiration and even repeated some things verbatim (with permission of course!) from many different sources on our journey to creating Bolt’s culture. Our feedback culture means that this playbook was built and shaped by every single person at Bolt. We especially owe a debt of gratitude to Matt Mochary who was an early advisor to Bolt and was instrumental in establishing culture as a primary focus from the start, but also in partnering with us to tailor specific practices and schools of thought to our business model. We have also drawn on the Conscious Leadership Group’s approach to building a productive, creative culture while emphasizing the importance of bringing humanity and self-awareness into the workplace.
