Our Core Values:
Any good organization must have an inspiring, shared mission at its core – and it must have capable leadership in place and in development. Assuming these two factors are present, the following eight traits define a healthy corporate or organizational culture.
- Openness and humility from top to bottom of the organization – Arrogance kills off learning and growth by blinding us to our own weaknesses. Strength comes out of receptivity and the willingness to learn from others.
- An environment of accountability and personal responsibility – Denial, blame and excuses harden relationships and intensify conflict. Successful teams hold each other accountable and willingly accept personal responsibility.
- Freedom for risk-taking within appropriate limits – Both extremes – an excessive, reckless risk-taking and a stifling, fearful control – threaten any organization. Freedom to risk new ideas flourishes best within appropriate limits.
- A fierce commitment to “do it right” – Mediocrity is easy; excellence is hard work, and there are many temptations for shortcuts. A search for excellence always inspires both inside and outside an organization.
- A willingness to tolerate and learn from mistakes – Punishing honest mistakes stifles creativity. Learning from mistakes encourages healthy experimentation and converts negatives into positives.
- Unquestioned integrity and consistency – Dishonesty and inconsistency undermine trust. Organizations and relationships thrive on clarity, transparency, honesty, and reliable follow-through.
- A pursuit of collaboration, integration, and holistic thinking – Turf wars and narrow thinking are deadly. Drawing together the best ideas and practices, integrating the best people into collaborative teams, multiplies organizational strength.
- Courage and persistence in the face of difficulty – The playing field is not always level, or life fair, but healthy cultures remain both realistic about the challenges they face unintimidated and undeterred by difficulty.
