Holding the truth – the presence of integrity as a key value

amid the ambiguity of our environments

diversity in all its forms: race, gender, religion, sexual orientation,
generational, the dissenting voice, and differences of all kinds
Holding multiple perspectives without judgment – creating and
holding a space so that multiple perspectives are entertained
before decisions are rendered
Discovery of potential – the ability to search for and find the
potential in ourselves and in others
