empower people in organizations and communities to realize their most noble
aspirations by transferring the skills and demonstrating the power of
Holding one's self and one's team to a high standard of commitment to our
clients' needs and interests.
Fostering social justice, environmental stewardship, and active citizenship.
Honoring other human beings simply for virtue of their being alive. We begin
with a posture of respect and courtesy for every individual (assume the best
about others' intentions until clearly proven different.) We honor and respect
diversity in daily interactions.
Respecting the right of people to have an effective voice in the decisions that
affect their lives. We support workplace democracy and a principle of maximum
appropriate involvement in the process.
Assuming that a work culture with norms of honesty and integrity is inherently
healthy and productive. We know it takes unusual courage to be authentic and
speak the truth, as we know it. This is a character trait we wish to hire for
and nurture at Interaction Associates.
Holding oneself accountable for the success and development of the whole team
and helping others be successful.
Demonstrating a commitment to high standards of competence and continuously
improving performance in: financial management, business processes, and
individual and team work.
In 1993, Interaction Associates made a unique move to put its values into
action. It became the first firm of its kind to fund a nonprofit institute: The
Interaction Institute for Social Change (IISC).
