The DREAM Workplace Core Values are …
Discipline—No one ever reaches their fullest potential without the development of personal discipline. We help develop discipline not as a burden, but rather as the path to a higher order that sets people free to soar and reach their highest potential.
“What we do upon some great occasion will probably depend on what we already are. What we are will be the result of previous years of self-discipline.”
– Henry Parry Liddon
Relationships—The quality of your relationships determine the quality of your life. We teach relationship management. As a person ascends to higher levels of responsibility in their career, people skills become increasingly important. A failure to deliver on the people-side of the business may lead to short-lived unsustainable promotion.
“The people with whom you work reflect your own attitude. If you are suspicious, unfriendly and condescending, you will find these unlovely traits echoed all about you. But if you are on your best behavior, you will bring out the best in the persons with whom you are going to spend most of your working hours.”
– Beatrice Vincent
Excellence—Your life will shrink or expand in direct proportion to your commitment to excellence. At DREAM Workplace, we not only seek to perform with preeminent excellence, but to instill this core value within the hearts and minds of every individual who participates in our professional development programs.
“The quality of a person’s life is in direct proportion to their commitment to excellence, regardless of their chosen field of endeavor.”
– Vince Lombardi
Accountability—Our approach to professional development serves to create a culture of accountability. We believe accountability helps people offer the best version of themselves making the workplace and the world a better place. By instilling this core value in all we do we help people to heighten their own willingness to be held accountable and to hold others accountable for delivering their best effort.
“The lack of accountability in a workplace leads to a breakdown in trust. It is impossible to have a high-performance work environment in a culture infected with low trust. Great organizations foster a mutual commitment from top to bottom to be held accountable and to hold others accountable.”
– Bobby Weber
Mentorship—A crucial success factor to reaching your potential in business and in life is mentorship. Mentorship creates a learning environment that facilitates the sharing of tribal knowledge as critical experience and wisdom is transferred from mentor to protégé. We believe that mentorship ensures the long-term sustainability of a business by integrating cross-training, succession planning, and individual professional development.
“We need mentors…I know of no leader in any era who hasn’t had at least one mentor: a teacher who found things in him he didn’t know were there; a parent, a senior associate who showed him the way to be…someone who demanded more from him than he knew he had to give.”
– Warren Bennis
