Operating Principles

Healthy Systems

  • Assume the best: Everybody is doing the best they can with what they have and what they know.
  • Focus on the vision: The best way forward moves us toward what we want, not away from what we fear.
  • Enable autonomy: A challenge is best solved by the person or group most affected.
  • Pursue collective truth: The truth lies in the combined perspective and experiences of all stakeholders.
  • Align outsides with insides: Purposefully aligning our words and actions with our values and beliefs allows effective leadership and growth to emerge.

Human Wellbeing

  • Equal worth: My worth is equal to that of every other human being.
  • Emotional value: Awareness and acceptance of my emotions creates space for compassion and balance.
  • Self-surrender: Releasing my problems to the source brings peace and creates order out of chaos.
  • Empowered transformation: Nurturing relationships with shared goals enables my empowerment, healing, and growth.
  • Unique purpose: Pursuing my unique and valuable contribution to the world fulfills my human purpose.
