Our Values

Value I am a person of inherent worth, and I acknowledge that others have the same value. I intentionally demonstrate my value of others in my daily interactions by making their lives better in some way because they crossed my path.

Authenticity I believe in being authentic and truthful in representing myself and my business.

Integrity I walk with integrity with everyone and in everything I do, including words, deeds, financial dealings, conduct, personal relationships, and business relationships. I ensure I am always in compliance and work with the materials I am authorized to use.

Excellence I am committed to excellence in everything I do.

Accountability I am accountable for my promises and actions and to Maxwell Leadership’s Code of Ethics: learning, living, and leading the Laws of Leadership.

Responsibility Leaders are responsible, and I am a leader. I take credit for my success and my failure. I will act quickly to address issues and, more importantly, learn from my mistakes. I take responsibility for everything I do, knowing it always impacts others.

Respect I treat others as I would like to be treated as the basis of every interaction, aiming to put the other person's interests ahead of my own. By getting to know others, I can treat them as they would like to be treated based on their personality, preferences, and expectations.

Growth I am intentional about continuing to grow and develop myself and passionate about facilitating the growth and development of others. The only true failure is not learning from our experiences.

Progress Over Perfection I believe that moving forward and making progress is more important than achieving perfection. Human beings are flawed and imperfect, and we need to give grace to ourselves and others.

Strengths Over Weaknesses I believe that by honing my strengths and finding ways to intentionally use them in my daily life, I can be all that I was created to be. This is for anyone willing to understand themselves and be intentional. Focusing on strengths rather than fixing weaknesses leads to happier, healthier lives.
