Walt Disney once said, “When your values become clear, making decisions become easier.”

Our values are what’s important to us and act as guiding principles for our behaviours. We can’t elevate our emotional intelligence without aligning our interactions with others and our day-to-day activities with our values. They drive our beliefs and our actions. They can help ensure we behave in a way that matches who we want to be at our core. 

Here are our core values. They are the cornerstones that make up our culture and influence how we work, the conversations we have, and who we ask to join our team.



Discovery is about always learning, growing and exploring our world and what it has to offer. We are life-long learners and are passionate about continually learning more. We have a never-ending thirst for knowledge, and dedicate time in our schedule for learning and creative thinking. 


Wellness is about balancing one’s health, body, mind and spirit. We are conscious about making good choices each day that lead toward our emotional and physical well-being. We encourage work-life balance that rejuvenates ourselves emotionally, socially and physically, be it from rest or play.



Connection is about creating a strong, healthy support system personally and professionally. These relationships should foster a sense of respect, trust and create a safe space for sharing feelings, resources, and encouraging partnerships. Encouraging connection is core to our purpose.



Transparency is about creating a sense of openness, vulnerability, and authenticity. We want our communication to be transparent and encourage trust and respect from one another. We believe open, honest communication is vital to a healthy workplace, and we are committed to this kind of communication with our clients.


Inspiration is about making a difference below, across and above you in your realm of impact. We want to meet people that inspire us, motivate and inspire one another, and provide exceptional service to inspire and motivate our clients. We are dedicated to learning more, being better, and teaching others.


Innovation is about thinking outside the box. We want to solve problems creatively, always improving, encouraging new ideas, and constantly striving for exceptional quality. Innovation takes place for us in the provision of our products and services, as well as our processes and technologies.
