Are doing the best they can under at times difficult circumstances.
Are invested in the ideas they generate.
Want to be ethical, courteous, polite, and honest and want to improve their lives.
Want to get along with others such as clients and colleagues.
Want to be accepted and belong to a group.
Want to make their own lives better as well as the lives of those they love, respect and admire.
Want to take care of important others and be taken care of by them.
Want to leave a positive legacy and make a positive difference in the world.
Want to be respected by others and to respect others.
Want to be proud of their accomplishments and be recognized for their contribution.
