Gladney's Values

Monday, November 1, 2010

Clear, well-communicated values reflect the convictions of an organization.

Gladney values INTEGRITY above all; is built on pillars of PASSION and DEDICATION; and is driven by COMPASSION for the vulnerable.

This may be a great statement, but it’s meaningless if we don’t walk the talk. Examples abound of corporations (and non-profit organizations) that say one thing and do another.

We do live these 4 values at Gladney. They empower our staff. They define our culture. They transcend, and even bridge, differences. They serve as a compass for us. They form the basis for the reputation Gladney has built over 123 years of service.

As I interact daily with my Gladney team members, I’m absolutely convinced that their personal values align in word and deed with these 4 organization values. I wish you all could wander the halls with me and witness how powerfully these values frame what we do each day at Gladney.

Thank you, Frank, for your words, especially about the Gladney Staff. I think the same can be said for the Gladney Board and the Fund Board...we all share those values for an organization which has so impacted our lives forever.
