We question, we speak up, and we innovate - We openly acknowledge problems. Being passive is not the solution. Raising issues or offering
solutions makes our commitment to each other meaningful.
We collaborate - Involving others is not a stumbling-block in the way of action. It is an indispensable
step to problem solving. Diversity of thought and opinion produces the best decisions.
We take accountability and act - We do not content ourselves with not making a mistake.
We act decisively when we have the information we need to move forward. More important, however,
is that we blend an instinct for speed with thoughtfulness.
