We work to propel change across all sectors. And we seek to foster change in ourselves, to be the best people we can be and an even better team.
It’s our values that guide these endeavours.
Our values remind us of our foundations, they unite our efforts and inspire the best in us, individually and collectively. Our values prod us, pique our interest, guide us and sometimes challenge us.
This keeps life interesting and keeps us moving forward confidently.
EXCEL AT THE NEXUS
We seek to achieve valuable outcomes at the nexus between community, business, government and Creating Communities’ goals. We understand how and where these interests overlap and strive to achieve creative solutions at the core of their connections.Our solutions are unique and innovative, to ensure we deliver extraordinary outcomes for clients and communities.
Generosity is both a way of being that shapes our collaboration as a team and a spirit that we are motivated to embed in communities around the world. We see and allow for a generosity in our work by: helping others in need, volunteering time, speaking out for change, giving space for others to thrive and contribute their ideas. Our actions are motivated by a generosity of heart that we continue to reflect upon and nurture through our work.
Being guided by morals, ethics and values helps us to act with integrity within our roles and in the spaces in which we work. We seek to be reliable and trustworthy by: listening well, doing what we say we will do, accepting responsibility, being honest and speaking the truth.
CREATE LASTING, POSITIVE CHANGE
Our models and approaches are proven to create lasting, positive change. We focus on building capacity, both internally and in the communities in which we work, in order to ensure our impact is sustained and grown over time. We do this by: developing people, recognising heritage, embedding culture and building the soft infrastructure that captures and promotes a lasting legacy. Building reciprocal working relationships and enabling succession of roles are key strengths of our business.
SHARPEN THE PENCIL
We strive for purpose and meaning over profit, but it’s our commercial discipline that allows us to achieve our goals to change the world into a better place. Our experience has shown creating shared value is critical to the sustainability of community initiatives. Creating Communities aligns the interests and investments of stakeholders to deliver mutual benefit. We then walk alongside stakeholders and the community, to bring this into being.
Developing and maintaining positive internal and external relationships are central to the success of our business. We support all individuals and nurture relationships in a way that allows people to reach their goals while working for the common good. We encourage active listening, sharing and collaborative decision-making, to develop respectful, open and robust relationships.
AT THE HEART OF IT
We believe that at the heart of things, most people want good things for themselves and each other. This desire is firmly lodged in the collective subconscious, and drives us to look out for each other and to seek good outcomes for our communities. It’s this heart we uncover and bring to life in our work.
