Principle-Centered Personal Service
As support providers, coordinators, and administrators: We subscribe to the primary mandate of the Hippocratic Oath: “THIS ABOVE ALL, DO NO HARM.” We subscribe to the CONCEPT OF SERVANT LEADERSHIP in delivering supports to people with developmental disabilities. The test of servant leadership is: Do those served [our participants] grow as persons? Do they, while being served, become healthier, wiser, freer, and more autonomous? We subscribe to the Center’s CODE OF ETHICS & CONDUCT (GARC Staff Development & Morale Policy 309) and strive to embody the highest levels of integrity, stewardship, and accountability. We subscribe to the principles of effectiveness articulated by Dr. Stephen Covey, in his book THE SEVEN HABITS OF HIGHLY EFFECTIVE PEOPLE. Highly effective people:
- ARE PROACTIVE,
- BEGIN WITH THE END IN MIND,
- PUT FIRST THINGS FIRST,
- THINK WIN-WIN,
- SEEK FIRST TO UNDERSTAND, THEN TO BE UNDERSTOOD,
- SHARPEN THE SAW.
