A value system. A strong work ethic. A love of family. Gratitude. The desire to dream big and then work to make those dreams happen. These are our truths. These are the values of KK Hartman Partners.
This is the Kramer family mantra: “To whom much is given, much is expected.” from Luke 12:48
Imagine a rhetorical charm bracelet of gems as an outline for a positive message and set of values. Together the gems form the chain that strengthens and defines our beliefs and our relationships.
We use many of the concepts these gems represent in our active coaching and consulting work. Additionally, because we espouse the gems as a set of fifteen values or principles, the workshops and presentations we create about careers, relationships and leadership include details about many of the gems woven into our programs. In our book, “An Unlikely Ambassador and her Diplomatic Daughter,” published July 2, 2015, we share these gems and tell stories about how the gems have worked for us in our diverse, even sort of “checkered” careers.
Examples of our gems include: A Vision of the Desired Future is Necessary, Assertiveness is Not Optional, Manage Your Time. It Does Not Manage You, Skills Create Opportunities, When Opportunity Knocks…or Not, and Practice Continuous Improvement
The more we wear (practice) and the more we experience (apply) these fifteen rhetorical gems, the more effective, valuable and meaningful they become.
