We take personal responsibility and face challenges head-on.
Courage is not the absence of fear, but the acquired ability to move beyond the fear when times are tough and challenging. It is the commitment to begin without any guarantee of success. It is taking action in spite of fear. Here’s what courage looks like in the workplace:
It’s what one draws upon to face dangers and difficulties
Persevering in the face of adversity
Moving forward when you feel fear
Standing up for what is right
Includes endurance, mental stamina and innovation
Showing respect when others don’t reciprocate
Through professionalism and dedication, we honor our commitment to serve others and our obligation to be good stewards of the gift of life.
Here are some ways that service is exemplified in the workplace:
Using your skills and abilities to help others
Being good stewards of the gift of life
Treating others with dignity and respect
Stepping up when you see a need
Helping others reach their fullest potential
Doing “small things” as well as you seek to do “big things”
We work in partnership with others, seeking to understand and be understood, and finding common ground to build upon together.
Union gives strength. Our decisions and our work are better when we collaborate together. We gain energy when we are all working together to achieve the same goals. Following are some ways we demonstrate collaboration in the workplace:
