OUR VALUES

 

Shared Sense of Purpose

We are engaged in noble, meaningful work that creates enduring value for our clients, our communities, and the wider world.

Compassion

We strive to listen with the “ears of the heart” and to seek out the deeper meaning and bolder vision embedded in the stories shared with us. We encourage ourselves and our clients to use our resources in a way that serves the planet and future generations.

Wisdom

As advocates and guides, we offer encouragement and clarity, not simply technical knowledge. We continually strive to deepen our relationships, so we are able to offer the best possible insights at the most critical moments, leading to the optimal outcomes.

Dependability

We are present and available during the joyous and tragic times, as well as the quieter, transitional moments in between.

Authenticity

We seek to be genuine and open in our connections with others, so we can uphold our commitment to the betterment of our clients and the world – for generations to come.

 

WHY CHICORY

Known for its beauty and perseverance, chicory flourishes where other plants can’t survive. Its deep roots and piercing blue flowers have been used throughout the ages for healing, as a flavoring, and in ritual ceremonies – an apt symbol of the balance between strength and beauty we strive to create for our clients. Read our BLOG POST with more details about why we picked this amazing plant to represent us.
