We ensure a common understanding of AFI vision and values. We take responsibility for our decisions and communicate them clearly and timely. We are responsible for our own professional development.
We apply the same rules for all. We are not influenced by external stakeholders. We do not seek to make personal gains as a result of our working relationships.
We share relevant information in a timely manner. We ensure decision making processes are clearly communicated. We encourage open dialogue with colleagues where we can share constructive criticism.
We are respectful of people’s cultures and backgrounds. We assume good intentions. We take time to understand each other’s roles and value each person’s responsibilities.
We ensure AFI quality standards are met. We are proactive and put members’ needs first. We set high individual performance goals.
We apply patience, understanding and respect towards each other in all stages of the work process. We help and assist others and go beyond our job descriptions. We share information and knowledge freely and willingly.
