Our 5 Guiding Principles and Fundamental Pillars
We are outstanding team players, committed to ‘One Vision’ that we are all responsible for.
2) Integrity (responsible for your word and truth)
The process of being whole and complete in principle actions, words, decisions, methods, outcomes, and character. We bring the same 'us' wherever we are, regardless of the circumstance we don’t leave parts of ourselves behind. We don’t have a ‘work us,’ a ‘family us,’ and a ‘social us.’ We are 'us' all the time.
The origin of an original kingdom of possibilities hitherto experienced. Being present to a new nature, condition, function, disposition, heart, character, life etc.
To move, touch and excite the mind, emotions or spirit to a high level of feeling conveyed through action. Move or stimulate the intellect or emotions to a degree that prompts action, invention, and creation.
The act of self-reflecting, by way of looking inward, to identify challenges and create solutions. An examination of one's own thoughts, emotions and feelings by observing one's own inner state is the principle we live (Anything I see wrong with you, I will go fix it myself until the world becomes beautiful).
These principles articulate the ‘The Manhood Academy' and help define “who we are” as an organisation. Together, these values and principles underpin The Manhood Academy's culture.
They are our belief system and define our ‘way of being'.
