  • VISIONARY: Transcend status quo by drawing inspiration from common and uncommon sources, and use that inspiration to help others achieve potential.

  • INTROSPECTIVE: Understand how personal thoughts and behaviors affect outcomes, and take time to discover the truth of themselves and others before passing judgment or committing to action.

  • VIGILANT: Use action and decision as their primary problem-solving tools, look back on past experiences to overcome future obstacles and draw strength and grounding from core values.
