Let me share the six that I’ve consciously defined to guide my vision and, in fact, my daily life. • Integrity. I tell the truth and do what I say I will. If I can’t do something I committed to, I tell those concerned why I cannot. I speak up when I see things that don’t look right. • Growth. I am committed to seeking continual personal development. There is so much to learn in the world, and I want to stay competitive.
