Attitude, Interaction and Communication Standards
1. The standard for communication between staff members is that discussions will be collegial at all times, and will be kept productive. Any critique that is made in public will take the form of positive criticism. Negative or non-productive cycles of discussion will be avoided at all cost.
2. Email is one of the most common methods of communication. While it is of value for disseminating information to several people, we recognize that it does not always encourage effective dialogue. Team members will interact via the most direct methods (direct dialogue, phone call), when possible and appropriate.
