Values are foundational in the building of an authentic enterprise. These are ours...
We choose to do meaningful, purposeful, intentional work. The Next is created to make a difference, as best we can, for people and for enterprise.
We demonstrate respect and integrity for ourselves, each other, and the community. We commit to our relationships.
We believe in excellence and we select quality over quantity. Our work is neither designed nor intended for every organization.
We insist on applicability, translating complexity into direct, applied models. There must be something one can do with any learning.
We hold a high appreciation for good design. In all things, we seek the elegant solution.
Core business principles help articulate an enterprise. This is what we ascribe to...
We take an inter-disciplinary approach to learning and we glean from a wide range of sources. All aspects of human behaviour interest us. We are constantly seeking the convergence of art, science, ecology, technology, and spirituality.
We are forward-thinking innovators, focused on the horizon. We consider the long term important. In enterprise design and in leader development, we are invested in the future.
We hold The Next to a high standard and we act on those things we recommend to others. We study network leadership as we do it. We strive to be an example of creative and sustainable enterprise.
We see that profitability and sustainability go hand in hand. We do not accept that it is necessary or appropriate to choose one at the expense of the other.
We keep things simple. We take complex ideas and translate them into simple, usable processes.
