The LTrek Compass, by which we navigate, is not only a symbol of “True Leadership,” but also is our value system which includes our commitment to all LTrek stakeholders and to the greater community in which we live. Our LTrek Compass is comprised of three core values including 1) Virtuous Leadership 2) Servant Leadership and 3) Effective Collaboration.
We are committed to developing and promoting virtuous leaders in ourselves and others. We believe true leaders are servants at heart. In an increasingly interdependent world, we aim to foster effective collaboration with all LTrek stakeholders and in the organizations we serve.
We challenge ourselves, leaders and organizations to consider these questions: “Who am I? Where am I going? What type of leader do I aspire to be? Where do I want to end up?” Our values will ensure that our steps to achieve our goals and our aspirations will be guided by the most principled means possible. This is how a compass serves us on a trail. This is how our value system will help to guide our steps now and in the years to come.
