  • We acknowledge and honour existing positive strengths and processes

  • We work collaboratively with colleagues in relationships underpinned by loyalty professionalism and collegiality, and

  • We do things ‘WITH’ people, not ‘TO’ them.


  • We display professionalism in all aspects of our work and seek to deliver beyond expectations as often as we can

  • We honour and enable processes of transparency and accountability in all Stronger Smarter Institute activity, and

  • We ‘WALK our TALK’.


  • We accept positive feedback with humility and constructive feedback as an opportunity to reflect, learn and develop

  • We provide robust and constructive feedback in the interests of a high expectations agenda, and

  • We enable and embrace innovative and creative ways of thinking and doing.


  • We respectfully challenge others who demonstrate toxic behaviours that are contrary to the Stronger Smarter values

  • We respectfully challenge those who collude with low expectations, and

  • We continually reflect on our own practice to contemplate how we can learn and do better.
