Values Statement


MIGASHCO is guided by Anishinabek values and driven by the following gift-giving virtues.


Love


In Anishinabek communities, offerings to the Great Spirit are expressed through love of oneself. This love builds on 'being' values and makes it possible to love others. MIGASHCO, by extension, helps others articulate this virtue by enabling individuals to develop through effective communication and an ability to be assertive.


Respect



Respect is both earned and given when seeking balance in relationships – especially in adulteducation. Guidelines of courtesy, sharing, and confidentiality are prime values.


Humility


As quality educators, we also learn from our students as they share their experiences with ours. In turn, we pass on the benefit of knowledge acquired in each training session.


Courage


It takes mental and moral strength to overcome fears that prevent us from living our true spirit as human beings. Education meets the challenge of life’s tests with integrity.


Honesty


To be truly honest is to keep promises made to others and to oneself. We promise to present each topic with the most up-to-date and relevant information that each of our clients requires.


Wisdom

We who seek knowledge develop wisdom as we attempt to share our information, gifts, and skills. Our goal is contribution to the development of a peaceful and healthy community through coaching and leadership.


Truth

To know and understand these seven natural laws is the basis of a quality relationship between us, our clients and the universe.
