Core Values

Core Values are long-term, unchanging principles of conduct which survive technological changes, temporary social patterns and norms through time.

They are basic philosophical rules which form the basis of the organization’s culture.

These Core Values define the manner in which the objectives are met and way the group identifies with and relates to its environment and fulfills its responsibilities for ethical and socially redeeming behavior.

Core Values answer the question, “How do we go about doing our work?”

The absence of values suggests that any means to accomplish goals are acceptable, regardless of costs, implications or consequences.

Disclosing one’s values dispels any doubt of an individual or group’s fundamental positions on the pursuit of their activities, so that they may be known by their values and obtain agreement with whom they resonate.

Thomas Kalajian is pleased to present his core values publicly.

Dedication To Clients.
We respect the sanctity of client goals and regard our role to facilitate their realization as a sacred trust and responsibility.

Pursuit of Excellence.
We maintain a passion for life-long learning, for implementing meaningful change, for nourishing relationships, for encouraging talent, for rewarding curiosity, courage and innovation, and for anticipation and fulfillment of our clients’ unexpressed expectations

Valuing Others.
We do not conduct our business for the purpose of pursuing exploitation, leverage, domination or manipulation of others by reason of their disadvantage or misfortune.

Authenticity and Integrity.
We realize that our own personal authenticity and integrity must form the foundation of valid and meaningful human interaction.

Responsibility for Leadership.
We understand and accept our duty for leadership in the disciplines for which our clients rely upon our expertise and judgment for guidance, insight, perspective and direction.

We look beyond traditional thinking when we face new challenges to create innovative solutions, strategies and opportunities for our clients.

Mutual Respect.
We do not disparage, degrade nor devalue ourselves, our work, our intentions, our reputation, our value or others, nor condone others in doing so.

Bettering Conditions.
We pursue our work on the premise that our highest purpose and greatest fulfillment derives from competent, effective and constructive service to others.
