The Principles

We have three principles that are always in motion.

Coordination

Coherence

As humans we strive for internal coherence to understand what is taking place, how it impacts us, what it means to us.

Mystery

Life is complex with many moving pieces causing ambiguity, so we embrace the mystery and approach it with a mindset of curiosity.

The Values

Our practices are grounded in a set of core
values that permeate all of our
communication, actions and decisions.

Appreciative

Appreciative

We grow where we focus. We identify what has been working well to build on past strengths toward a more successful future. Through guided questions we uncover these rich stories of success.

Multicultural

Multicultural

By taking a multicultural perspective we allow for divergent and creative perspectives to emerge. The diversity of today’s world is closer to home and a daily, lived experience. The better we are at connecting across difference, the more enriched our everyday lives will be.

Relational

Relational

Relationships are made in communication and the quality of our communication affects the quality of our relationships. It is in this space that meaning making occurs. The more effectively we can align the actual impact we have on others with what we intended, the better the quality of our interactions.

Voice

Voice

People have voice when they feel safe. This is encouraged through building trust and respecting each other’s opinions and concerns. It is critical to forming inclusive environments where people can engage in dialogue to feel heard and acknowledged

Systemic

Systemic

Nothing happens in isolation and every word spoken or not spoken; every action taken or not taken; impacts all other aspects of the system. As we live in open systems that are subject to change, it is important for us to be mindful of far-reaching implications and unintended consequences.

Perspective Taking

Perspective Taking

We all hold our own points of view on how we see the world, interpret events, and make meaning from our interpretations. All views have a place and the challenge is managing the tension of holding on to our own views while embracing the views of others.
