  7. PLEASE USE YOUR CRITICAL & ANALYTICAL SKILLS • TO REVIEW THIS ORGANIZATIONAL VALUE STATEMENT • RESPECT: We treat others as we would like to be treated ourselves. We do not tolerate abusive or disrespectful treatment. Ruthlessness, callousness, and arrogance don't belong here. • INTEGRITY: We work with customers and prospects openly, honestly and sincerely. When we say we will do something, we will do it; when we say we cannot or will not do something, we won't do it. • COMMUNICATION: We have an obligation to communicate. Here, we take the time to talk with one another...and to listen. We believe that information is meant to move and that information moves people. • EXCELLENCE: We are satisfied with nothing less than the very best in everything we do. We will continue to raise the bar for everyone. The great fun here will be for all of us to discover just how good we can really be. As almost 20% of our graduates are DePaul employees and because our students come in the program because they “want to make difference in the world” we teach ethical leadership as a core course, critically reflecting and rediscovering the mission, values and practices of the university We start by showing how values needs to align with practices for individuals and organizations Copyleft DMT
