More on +Culture
Officially, positive culture is:
- supporting people,
- striving to meet people's needs,
- working to understand one another regardless of communications means,
- empowering choice making, and
- helping people feel and be safe.
It's about making a shift in thinking away from power, control, and coercion in language and actions, toward affirmation, unconditional acceptance and encouragement. For more information on Ohio's Positive Culture Initiative, click here.
The way we see it is this:
- building healthy quality relationships with PEOPLE,
- recognizing the unique gifts each person bring to the relationships,
- knowing one another well enough that mutual understanding becomes automatic,
- providing choices throughout the day, and
- establishing trust so that people feel safe while they are with us.
And accomplishing these ideals depends completely on quality employees who are committed to helping others have a good life.

If we stimulate the mind, and keep the body strong without crushing someone's spirit through the process, we are accomplishing our goals. We don't try to change people.
