How We Will Behave

Our values: We will truly seek to KNOW and to be KNOWN

Kindness (vs. niceness) – 

  • Speak the truth with love, understanding, and empathy.
  • Be considerate of others: Friendly, patient, and true concern
  • Give generously
  • Be tolerant and patient as you learn.
    • NO Fear 

    • We take risks and we speak all fears out in the open
    • Faith and love drive out fear – we are a sans fear community
    • Feel the Fear and Do it Anyway!
      • Ownership

      • We do not blame others, we own our stuff.
      • We quickly admit mistakes, seek forgiveness and change our mindset
      • We are self-aware of ourselves, others, and our stuff
        • Work Hard

        • We give our best in all we do 
        • We look to serve others and never give up
        • We play hard after we work hard. We have fun!

        No Isolation

        • We are at war with isolation – it is our common enemy
        • When we go “below the line” we call someone ASAP
