Values statement:
I believe that people are basically good. People are systems that are always trying to come into balance. I gravitate toward people that help me create balance. Leadership is important to me, I choose who I follow, and avoid strict hierarchies which limit my decision-making ability and creativity. I prefer to be my own boss at the same time cooperating with others. People are flexible and can change. It is the differences in people that drive introspection, awareness, action and often irritation. We need the comfort of similarity as well. I am drawn to differences in cultures and similarities in values. Reflection or being keeps us healthy, giving meaning to our actions. I value reflection in a world where doing is dominant and too often without meaning.
