An Everyone Culture: Becoming a Deliberately Developmental Organization ^ 14259

DELIBERATELY DEVELOPMENT COMMUNITY

We help each other find learning edges and work on them, encouraging each other to take on roles slightly out of our comfort zones

Welcome Everything

We demonstrate our openness; we are not committed to one system, cause, intervention, or action; we take feedback, give feedback, openly share our maps, and help each other upgrade our maps of the territory

Prioritize Wisely

We get to choose where to put our resources; we look after ourselves, the EA community, and the world

Connect and Collaborate

Isolation usually won’t help us do good better; ‘we’ will

Here for Others

We show up so that we can use our resources to help others the most over our lifetime

Reveal and Request

Authentic connection comes from our demonstrations of vulnerability and curiosity; felt trust strengthens us to take on greater obligations sustainably and healthily
