Respectful
 We take great pride in our team, therefore we start with a foundation of trust and respect - it's easy and free. We strive to be forthright and resolve issues directly and respectfully, without passing them along. 
Problem Solver
 We anticipate problems, seek new solutions, and always do our best. We overcome obstacles to achieve the success we dream about and address those challenges without passing them along. We partner with subject matter experts so that we can focus on what we do best. We make long-term decisions and avoid short-term reactions, because with more input we make better decisions.
Community Minded
 We take great pride in our work and community. We value our partnerships as a means of moving things forward. We create a feeling of community in all that we do - together we are stronger – and it makes us who we are.  
Mindful
 We practice warmth and genuine connection with others. We embrace our imperfections and practice humility – it’s important to recognize when we are wrong or to ask for help. We know that work-life balance is essential and value the importance of disconnecting. We smile, laugh, and have fun - it shows our authenticity. 
Passionate
 We love life and work and know our purpose in it.  We insist on high standards and take pride in what we do - and the quality shows. We are relentless and value grit – pushing through even when things get difficult. We have genuine joy - yet humble delivery. 
Team Player
 We value compromise and collaboration and do what's best for the team without letting ego or personal agenda get in the way.  We step up and ask, “How can I help?” We chip in and do our part - because many hands make for light work and is critical to our success.
Clear Communication
 We value direct communication as a means of creating efficiency, understanding, and progress. We align on details and are considerate of others’ schedules as we work toward a common goal. Transparency and open communication resonate with us. We are present and engaged.
Reliable
 We hold ourselves and others to high standards and are consistent role-models within our team.  We drive accountability and decision-making at the right level.  We recognize our weaknesses and are responsible for our actions. We honor our commitments and follow-up - as it’s a reflection of our organization. 
Inclusive
 We embrace diversity and foster belonging which allows our culture to thrive. We create space for others, embrace new perspectives, and get outside our comfort zone.  We engage with those we don't know well, because that's how we alter perspective.  We develop a level of understanding about each other, as a means to learn from one another.
Honest & Trustworthy
 We are responsible for our actions, which builds on our foundation of trust and respect.  We say what we mean and do what we say.  We possess high integrity.  We are ethical and strive to do the right thing – always.
