“We Grow Together” – Participatory developmental learning from the outset.
“Asset-based community development” – Identify and maximize existing wealth forms.
“Economics of Mutuality” – The sharing of benefits and development of internal capital.
“Stewardship” – Developing our natural resources for future generations. Think long-term, think generations.
“Functional Spherical Leadership structure” – Managers are servant-leaders and facilitators focused on getting obstacles out of their team’s way rather than telling them what to do and how to go about product development.
“Building a culture of hard work” – “Crucible work” births the core values of character. Work is the greatest remedy available for both mental and physical afflictions.
Relational Networking – In a real sense, all life is interrelated. All people are involved in an
inevitable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly. Workers are sourced mainly from locality, honoring relationships with the local leaders and chiefs.
Reformational – We never stop learning, challenging systems and structures, and methodology thus striving constantly to improve what we are doing.
