  • Challenge the status quo:      

       - Does this represent the brand’s core values?
       - Is the experience enjoyable, engaging, and consistent?  
       - How does this add to or improve the culture?
       - What impact will this have to the bottom line?   
       - Will this be a mutually acceptable solution to the conflict?

  •  Provide clarity to a diversified group of professionals across departments into the over arching mission and goals of the group, as  well as insight into what is required of them to ensure it is achieved.
