Embraces and champions new ideas and encourages others to do likewise. Recognizes and rewards people and teams who are creative and innovative.

Deals with others in a pleasant manner. Treats others with respect and consideration. This is in contrast to those who are unpleasant and tend to alienate co-workers, or who seem insensitive to the needs of others and tend to demonstrate a lack of respect for others. A – Accountability “Showing integrity” “Leading by example” “Ownership and accepting responsibility” Acts in ways that demonstrate personal integrity and serves as a positive example of why others should trust the motives of the organization. Views himself or herself as a reflection of the organization by following through on commitments and accepting ownership of any mistakes he or she might make. Leaves others with the clear impression that integrity is a core value at this organization. This is in contrast to individuals who make commitments that go unmet, fail to acknowledge their role in disappointing events, or whose actions (or inaction) leave others with doubts about the level of trust that should be placed in the organization. R – Respect “Considerate of cultural diversity” “Building trust” “All people are to be valued” Demonstrates a genuine interest in the thoughts, opinions, values and needs of co-workers and customers. Avoids speaking, writing or doing other things that could be seen as disrespectful of people in their absence (or “behind their backs”).
