September’s word is Trust: Putting your confidence in someone you can depend on

Trust is a perfect word for right now, as all public school 8th graders in Wayne County just completed Challenge Day, a full-day experience that helps students express themselves and their emotions in a safe and supportive environment. Students and their adult leaders (almost 90 people from around Wayne County!) also spent some time working on growth mindset and breathing techniques. All of this is built on trusting each other to listen well, help when needed, and maintain confidentiality. Moving into a month about trust is a great reinforcement of what many people did this week!

WAYS TO LOOK FOR THIS VALUE/SKILL:

  • Steadfastly maintain confidentiality with coworkers.
  • Do what you say you will do.
  • Answer emails, return phone calls and text messages in a timely manner.
  • Are on time for meetings and appointments.
  • Perform your professional responsibilities with integrity.
