  • We are not reluctant to ask questions.
  • We strive for results and decisions and formulate these clearly and unambiguously.

Without competence there is no respect and no trust.

What competence means for us:

  • We leave to others what we are not proficient in.
  • We strive to learn what we need to be proficient in.
  • We support each other and obtain support when this is required.

Without consistency there is no respect and no trust.

What consistency means for us:

  • We respect decisions even when our own view has not prevailed.
  • We are open to rethink decisions in the light of new findings.
  • We implement decisions consistently and bring tasks to a conclusion.
  • We comply with commitments and agreements that we have made.

Without esteem there is neither honesty and sincerity nor respect and trust.

What esteem means for us:

  • We do not deceive and we speak the truth.
  • We never withhold important information from anyone.
