What we are about
What does this core culture look like
Our hubs work daily on forming a good culture. Who we are, the way we live life, what we say, how we behave, how we lead*, what we look at, what we believe, is all creating our design impact culture. In our hubs, we embrace impact statements and visual expressions of our culture.
GENEROSITY – According to the dictionary generosity is a quality of being kind and generous. We live this out by showing compassion, giving time to make a meal, offering to grab a glass of water, giving a word of encouragement, or by being generous with our attitude towards the new person in a customer facing role.
It is being aware and meeting the needs of others with financial generosity, or in relationship generosity by showing an extra helping of kindness. Generosity is not just about giving money, but also giving in time and kind actions. It is as simple as showing generosity by sharing a smile. Smiles are contagious.
Challenge yourself daily to live generous(ly).
HONOUR – People rise to their highest when they are respected. Honouring people is believing in them. Seeing the gold rather than the dirt. In Africa, there is a tribe who honour beautifully. See below for an excerpt of their culture.
When someone does something harmful, they take the person to the center of the village where the whole tribe comes and surrounds them. For two days, they will say to the man all the good things that he has done. The tribe believes that each human being comes into the world as good. Each one of us only desiring safety, love, peace and happiness. But sometimes, in the pursuit of these things, people make mistakes. The community sees those mistakes as a cry for help. They unite then to lift him, to reconnect him with his true nature, to remind him who he really is, until he fully remembers the truth of which he had been temporarily disconnected: “I am good.”
Our positivity frees the best in people.
We all influence and change culture. We want to live a culture of generosity and honour.
