Guiding Values and Core Principles
Below you will see TCOM’s Guiding Values and Core Principles. This information below was updated March 2, 2022.
- Human serving systems and enterprises have a primary mandate of facilitating and supporting personal change (transformation).
- Human serving systems and enterprises are inherently complex as a result of the number of humans involved. This diversity of aims and perspectives can only be managed through meaningful integration. Integration among people is best managed through collaborative processes.
- All partners in human serving systems and enterprises have the responsibility for collecting, managing, and using accurate, relevant, and respectful information about the people served.
- All assessments and interventions should be culturally responsive and respectful.
- People should have voice and choice with regard to participating in any assessments and interventions.
- All interventions should be personalized, respectful and have demonstrable value to the people they serve.
- Collaborative processes, inclusive of children and families, should be used for all decisions at all levels of the system.
- Consensus on action is the primary outcome of collaborative processes.
- Information about the people served and their personal change should always inform decision making at all levels of the system.
- All of our work should be accomplished with respect of the earth and our impact on it.
