What are the underlying values that motivate you in the work that you’ve been doing all these years?

Today I was asked this interesting question. Below was my response:

My Values, Vision & Mission are at: My whole approach is predicated on the efficacy of the conscientization  process coupled with self-organizing systems (click here  to see a great video demonstrating learning via technology and self-organizing systems).

I also work a lot with Multiple Intelligences as epitomised by this quote: 

"Never hire or promote in your own image. It is foolish to replicate your strength and idiotic to replicate your weakness. It is essential to employ, trust, and reward those whose perspective, ability, and judgment are radically different from yours. It is also rare, for it requires uncommon humility, tolerance, and wisdom." [Dee W. Hock, Fast Company]. This video: [click here to see it] explains better than I ever will the problems emerging from the over emphasis on only one form of IQ.
