Rinnovare’s Core Values
Trustworthy – We Live by Our Principles
We place utmost value on being respectful and professional, even when in disagreement. We stay authentic to who we are as we represent Rinnovare. Laying down our principles and what’s ethical is not an option as we support and drive the credibility of Rinnovare.
Relational-We are Approachable
We will always be willing to work with others to problem solve. We see the value in solid communication. We aren’t in it just for ourselves. We are willing to bring others along with us and help them grow.
Growth Minded – We are Life Learners
If we’re not growing, we’re dying. We celebrate new ideas and see the value of setting goals and working towards attaining them. We will not settle for the status quo. We have the confidence and courage to be life learners.
Tenacious – We Never Give Up
We are willing to work hard at solving problems. We see the value in taking smart risks, moving things forward and not getting stuck. We are decisive and are not resistant to growth, change, and hard work.
Collaborate – We are Team Players
We are someone others are not intimidated by and want to come to with ideas, problems, solutions… We are inclusive of others and other ideas while maintaining a sense of humor and not taking ourselves too seriously. We are all in this together.
