‘Just doing my job’ is not enough!
 
We are responsible for what we do in our job. Never enforce a policy without thinking about its implications. Do what is right, even if that means risking our personal success or security. You can’t change everything about the business, but you can be involved in . Performing a duty isn't enough. Do not leave your personal values at the door!

Transform Security Guards into Security Guides
 
Redefine the role of security guards as helping, resolving, teaching, and sharing, rather than commanding and enforcing. Turn Security Guards into Security Guides and the People's Ombudsman.
Security Guides play multiple roles in making a place meaningful. They help people in trouble who may be causing trouble, by engaging with them and helping them get the resources they need. They are a mediator between the customer, staff and management. They are aware, kind and helpful.

Healing, not just curing
 
Treat patients as human beings entrusted to your care, not just as clients. Take the health of the whole human being, the community, and the social, political, economic and natural environment into account. Address causes of illness in addition to symptoms. Health care is not just the dispensing of services, not treating patients as consumers. The profit motive should never be primary. Make prices are reasonable, affordable and based on actual costs.

Protect, Understand and Help
 
Help those in trouble, including victims and those causing harm. Provide the help they need to address root causes and real solutions. Enforcing the law is important, but so is responding to the living human being in front of you.

– Respond to conflict by transforming the conflict situation.
– Look at evil with the eyes of a mother.
– Recognize your own brutality and complicity in causing harm.

Fight for the good
 
There is a goal more important the victory or national interest. While still doing their duty, soldiers should try to understand the nature of the conflicts in which they are involved, including the suffering, grievances and needs of all sides. Use force for protection, assistance, and building, rather than merely aggression. Fight for a lasting and meaningful resolution to conflict.

Relationship
 
Friendship is bringing together two souls for the elaboration of the good. True friends recognize the truth of each other – not just who they are at present, but what is best in them and what they may achieve. They work together to establish their most beautiful vision, first in ideas, then in actual life.
