I am in constant need of advice. So it is no surprise that I depend on my advisors. My advisors in this York project consist of our team. For me, my advisors must be people that I can trust. I don’t need people that agree with me. I am okay with a team of varying opinions. I am also okay with a team member telling me I need to rethink something. But the number one factor that I must have in my advisors is trust. I have to be able to trust the people giving me advice.
I have been in situations and environments where there is not trust. It is hard to accomplish goals because in this environment there are lies, people with their own agendas, and people who seek to take you down. Valuing the opinions of others is non-existent. Seeing another viewpoint is not on the radar. You cannot trust advisors in this environment.
For York Academy of Discovery, we are assembling a team based on trust. We want a team that can be honest with each other, forthright, loving, and attending to the needs of children first and foremost. Each member of our team is an advisor. We advise each other and seek understanding. Sometimes we fail, but we do not lose trust. We believe in each other and guide one another to work in the best interest of children. As we proceed, more members will be added to our team. We want strong individuals who are trustworthy and will advise in a spirit of good faith and care. A major requirement of an advisor on our team – putting the needs of children first! And we must be able to trust that individual. We want a trusting team of advisors!
