Honesty:You own your mistakes and are open about your shortcomings - it's the only way you'll learn and improve.

Collaboration:You'll quickly establish a mental map of whom you can rely on for what, on your team, at headquarters and in our country offices - if you try to do it all yourself, you won't succeed.

Trust:You accept limits to your sphere of control and give colleagues the benefit of the doubt.

Commitment: You are in it for the long-haul and want to grow with the organization, just like PSI serves its consumers and partners with host-country governments through thick and thin.
