Backpacker: Unencumbered, rookies are more open to new possibilities, ready to explore new terrain, and don’t get stuck in yesterday’s best practices.

Hunter-Gatherer: Rookies seek out experts and return with ideas and resources to address the challenges they face.

Firewalker: Lacking situational confidence, rookies take small, calculated steps, moving fast and seeking feedback to stay on track.

Pioneer: Keeping things simple and focusing on meeting core needs, rookies improvise and work tirelessly while pushing boundaries.
