As we enter the second decade of Georgia LEARNS we have been articulating the path to achieving our mission with the following beliefs:
- Relationship - Challenges are more likely to be understood based on developing genuine relationship with the people that are involved with the challenges.
- Trust - The relationships will be healthy, sustainable, and effective to the extent that mutual trust is nurtured, developed, and authentic.
- Truth - Whether by intent or by chance when the opportunity to need truth is presented it will be welcomed - even if challenging - when it is accompanied by mutual trust.
- Solution - We expect that solutions to persistent challenges will emerge from these relationships that are anchored by trust and truth.
- Implementation - Knowing what to do is rarely the true obstacle. Doing what is right and effective by overcoming internal resistance to change - frequently not stated and perhaps not even recognized - will be achieved by working with those we know, trust, tell us the truth - and involve us in designing and implementing solutions.
- Adaptability - Designing and implementing with the awareness that adaptability by ourselves and others will be more likely than not be required sooner than anticipated is normal.
In retrospect we recognized the first decade of Georgia LEARNS as the "Decade of Relationship." With anticipation we are projecting that the second decade (2021-2031) will be characterized as the "Decade of Trust." And yet, with awareness of "Adaptability" - we might learn otherwise regarding either decade.
