Values and behaviors:

Leadership shows up when we organize others around a vision, take courageous action, build powerfully diverse relationships and inclusive teams, are accountable to results, are committed to demonstrating ethical standards and culture, and when we inspire others to learn more, dream more, do more and become more.

Compassion shows up when we create space in our hearts and minds to empathize with the suffering and challenges of others and reveal a pathway for solutions.

Empowerment shows up when every worker is given the opportunity to discover their leadership potential and exercise it on behalf of others.

Accountability shows up when we exercise every day self-reflection, ownership, and responsibility for one’s words, ideas and actions.

Transparency shows up when we ensure that open communication at all levels is used and promoted to build lasting trust among our members and for their organization.

Excellence shows up when we demonstrate the ability to find lessons in our successes and failures, opportunities to learn each day, and the desire to always strive for improvement.
