MapCamp 2020: You can't organize your way to a future, principles matter.

If you have a compass with you, and you know where you’re going along with the rough direction in which that is; you’ll be able to withstand far more types of weather than if you just had a map. Technologies change, Markets change, Maps change but compass bearings are constant.

  16. Compass better than a map Maps change, compass bearings are

  17. Principles are like a compass. A compass has a true

    north that is objective and external, that reflects natural laws or principles, as opposed to values which are subjective and internal. @FarrahC32
  18. Values Values are beliefs, attitudes and opinions that people hold

    regarding specific issues. They are standards of behaviour about what is important in life. Values are internal and subjective, and may change over time. Principles Principles are fundamental truths that are permanent, unchanging, and universal in nature. Include: integrity, dignity, honesty, quality, service, fairness, kindness and patience. No matter how the map is changing - natural laws, principles, operate regardless. @FarrahC32
  19. How we react to these principles impacts every aspect of

    our lives. For example, the principle of trust impacts us on four levels: Personal – Trustworthiness Interpersonal – Trust Managerial – Empowerment Organizational – Alignment @FarrahC32
