1.   Since most people spend the biggest part of their life at work, the time spent should ideally feel as inspiring as during leasure time; even if creating this may be hard work.
2.   We live and work according to our visions, meaning we do not make decisions based on how we feel but based on what we think, feel, dream, see, experience, talk, what comes to us - all taken into consideration. This may result in the fact that others think we make our decisions illogically, even though for us and according to the vision they are logical. But of course you have to stick to your responsibilities. In other words: the intuition and in the end also the inspiration must be right - we want to be able to really stand for what we do in order to give 100%.
3.   Usually we make decisions together with others whose opinion and experience on the various topics have proven their value. Important decisions should be discussed until everyone anonymously agrees on the best solution.
4.   Every person and the effort to preserve fairness, ideals and perfection within the company, stands above the projects themselves; meaning to treat a person right is just as important as finishing a project.    
    In one sentence: we strive to reach the best for all in every situation.
5.   Despite our idealistic approach and our effort to care about the well-being of every person as well as our company, our expercience has proven that unfortunately not all situations can always be solved on a personal level. We never thought this would and absolutely did not want it to happen. Unfortunately we are now forced to add the following to our IDL philosophy:

If large tensions or conflicts arise between two or more persons, we try to a) solve them together in the first place. If this does not suceed, b) the life coach should be consulted. Only if all efforts to solve the situation on a personal level fail, we will c) employ a lawyer and cannot exclude the posibility to call for a lawsuit in order to finally reach a resolution.
