Compassion is treating others with love, respect, kindness, and understanding. Each person has value, so we have compassion for each other and for the people we serve, extending empathy and standing with them in their suffering. Compassion compels us to act.
Vulnerability means having the courage to share, ask for help, or even point out an issue. When we're transparent and honest, it allows for deeper, more meaningful connection. Vulnerability provides safety through listening well, accepts we all have struggles, and assumes the best in others.
Growth comes from continuous learning, both individually and collectively. We embrace that change is good and focus on expanding our skills and ability to help others.
Joy comes from the inside. We delight in our work, have fun, and are passionate about what we do. We find joy for each other and in each other's accomplishments. By practicing gratitude, we cultivate joy.
Accountability means our actions matter. We take the initiative and do what it takes to move our tasks forward with diligence and excellence. We accept that others will, with compassion, hold us responsible for results.
Creativity is all about constantly problem-solving. Creativity allows for open-ended and unconventional innovation. We actively welcome new ideas and recognize collaboration and flexibility are key to creativity.
