The center's system of methods and rules are direct, going from one point to another with a planned sequence of events and actions. This approach is to deliver to all students and personnel the process skills that can be applied or the "how to" of their chosen profession.
1. Foundational Values: Defining ethical character and values. Allowing the true character of the organization and student and personnel to surface.
2. Foundational Skills: Identifying people and process skills that are transferrable from one job division and/or department throughout the organization and common to all.
3. Education/Training: Adopting a philosophy of job specific personnel training that is accepted organization wide, involving people and process skills.
4. Enhancement: Creating greater value of existing skills and training pulled together with a common vision, language, curriculum and value.
5. Proactive and Reactive skills: Learning to treat not only the symptoms of a problem but teaching awareness and preventive skills to affect a cure that is beneficial to the people and the processes involved.
6. People/Process Skills: We believe these foundational skills should be accepted as required skills to build the business infrastructures of people and processes. This includes the education and awareness of thought that one skill is dependent on the other for success.
7. Valued Assets: The students and employees are the most valuable asset of the organization. By helping the students and employees with professional skills, we also improve the organization. As their professional skills increase, they will develop skills to directly impact their communities and possibly thier families.
8. Leadership: Leadership skills develop throughout the organization that will also help retrain and model professional behaviors that we associate with leaders and good citizens.
The Methodology Statement:
