CHARACTERISTICS OF TIM

Integrity

At the core, integrity is the essence of who you are, what you value and what you hold dear. It is how others see you and is something that you either have it or you don’t.

Intellectual Curiosity

The enemy of the status quo, curiosity begs us to ask questions, seek new answers, and explore more options. It is its own path to learning.

Exploratory Spirit

Travelers set a course for a destination. Explorers seek a course for discovery, because personal growth comes discovering new things, places and ideas.

Leadership

Real leadership is not about being the boss, it's about building trust, helping others grow to reach their full potential.

Humility

Respecting that there were many before you who created the paths and built the bridges so you could have an easier journey to find your place in the world.

Compassion

Humanity is connected by our concern for others. We share our empathy, kindness, and love. Without it the world would be chaos.

Inclusivity

Being inclusive creates an opportunity to learn, grow and collaborate to experience so much more together. It also inspires others to open their hearts and seek understanding that will lead to a better world.

Loyalty

Its more than an allegiance. It's an unspoken trust, a commitment to family, friends, and all who believe in you, that you too, believe in them.

Courage

You may not know you have it until you need it, but courage comes in many forms, from a sense of adventure that leads you outside your comfort zone, to a willingness to take a risk and try new things, or standing tall in face of a difficult challenge.

Iconoclastic

We may share similar traits and interests, but it is our differences are what make us unique. Embrace those differences for they are what make you stand out and actually draw people to you.

Worldly Interests in Language

When you learn another language, you develop an understanding for the culture. When you speak from the heart you transcend all languages

Academic Merit

Academic achievement creates a foundation for career, opens doors, to new opportunities and generates a sense of accomplishment that lasts a lifetime.
