The Collaborative Values
We will work together to achieve the greatest long-term benefit for the community as a whole.
We are willing to take responsibility for tasks and achieving specified outcomes, and commit to staying involved until the tasks are completed.
Fact-Based Decision Making
We will base decisions and action plans on objective data, thereby avoiding distortion of issues by personal feelings and agendas.
Collaboration Without Borders
We are willing to cross political, social and economic boundaries to partner with others in achieving community and regional outcomes.
We will honestly and forthrightly share all knowledge, experiences, and insights relative to community work and take responsibility for ensuring our truth is current.
We will envision success without limitations and then map a specific, attainable strategy for achieving that vision.
We are focused on using a strengths-based, asset oriented approach to people and issues. We believe that positive change occurs when we appreciate, value and invest in what is best in our people and community.
Commitment to Resolving Conflict
When conflicts arise, we will value every individual involved regardless of their perspective on the issue and maintain an unwavering commitment to working through the conflict, regardless of its severity.
