We are free to make honest and sincere expression without fear of bias, prejudice or malice. We encourage and value honesty and candor from associates, colleagues, and clients.


We act with sensitivity to the fact that our recommendations and actions may alter the lives and well-being of people within our client systems. We respect the fundamental rights, dignity, and worth of all people, including rights to privacy, confidentiality, and self-determination. We are sensitive to cultural and individual differences, including those due to age, sex, race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, disability, and socioeconomic status. We adapt methods to the needs of different organizations and cultures.

We assume responsibility for our personal actions and choices, and accept personal accountability for the quality of our work.
