Core Values

Our values work together to create a holistic framework for Co3 Consulting's work. They emphasize collaboration over hierarchy, understanding over judgment, and adaptability over rigidity, aligning with the philosophies of Whole Systems Paradigm and The Guiding Principles of A.L.O.H.A - as developed by Dr. Gerry Ebalaroza-Tunnell & Jeremy Tunnell.

1. Collaborative Curiosity

This value embodies the spirit of Ask, Listen, Observe from the first three letters in A.L.O.H.A. Combined with the collaborative nature of systemic paradigms, it emphasizes asking and valuing ongoing inquiry over settling for simple answers, actively listening to diverse perspectives while observing internal dialogue to discover hidden biases and obstructive perspectives. This is how we foster cultures of ongoing learning and exploration.

2. Empathetic Visioning

This value centers on the Heart-Focus principle of A.L.O.H.A. It highlights the importance of engaging businesses and communities with empathy and compassion rather than leaning into old paradigms of seeing people as mere resources. Human beings are the heart of Human systems; how we cultivate our relationship with the people we build systems with determines the health of that system. 

3. Adaptive Transformation and Wisdom

This value reflects Adapt/Acknowledge elements of A.L.O.H.A.. It emphasizes the power found in adapting to changing information quickly and acknowledging differences, diverse perspectives, and alternative strategies based on emerging knowledge and feedback.
