BigFish Local Core Values
I am committed to doing what is right in every situation, regardless of personal interests. I strive to earn the trust of others. I value honesty above self-preservation. I treat others the way I would want to be treated, whether or not I think anyone is watching. I only make promises I intend to keep. I follow through on my commitments.
I embrace education and am continually learning. I seek out feedback, suggestions and coaching. I am adaptable, remaining open to new ideas and to change. I believe that there is always room to improve. I learn from my mistakes. I am future oriented – I am willing to ‘dream,’ as well as be encouraging of others’ dreams. I strive to leave the world and everything in it, better than I found it.
I finish what I start, and I only start what I fully intend to finish. I take responsibility for all of my actions, whether I am held accountable by others or myself. I admit when I am wrong or have made a mistake. I communicate quickly and effectively with clients and coworkers, and I consistently follow up to ensure I have fulfilled my obligations. I take ownership of everything that happens in my life. I understand that any change I desire must begin with me.
I show respect to others – co workers, clients, family, and strangers – as well as to myself. I make an effort to be respectful of everyone’s time. I respect diversity, and I am able to remain respectful when faced with differences of opinion. In showing respect to myself, I can expect to be treated with this same respect by others.
I am proactive in finding my own solutions, both in my professional and personal life. I am willing to make decisions when appropriate or necessary, rather than waiting for instructions. I communicate proactively with clients and co workers. I take immediate action whenever I see that it is required. I take it upon myself to prevent problems whenever possible, rather than being forced to react once they occur.
I practice moderation between my personal and professional life. I understand that the social, spiritual, physical, intellectual, and financial aspects of life all have importance. I value and strive to strengthen my relationships with clients, co workers, family, and friends. I am aware that I must take care of myself before I can take care of others, so I stay aware of my own needs and take responsibility for ensuring they are met.
I commit to assume in every interaction that others have only positive intentions toward me and toward the business. I look for the best in every person and situation, while remaining practical, honest, and aware. I choose to maintain a level of optimism regardless of external situations, operating under the assumption that all situations can be improved. I am grateful for my life and I appreciate everyone and everything in it. I express appreciation freely toward co workers, clients, and loved ones.
