Initiative

Image of the GenerosityTeacher PackInitiative is "recognizing and doing what needs to be done before I am asked to do it". Initiative has to be balanced with patience and dependability. You cannot shirk your responsibilities in one area to show initiative in a different area. A person who shows initiative will not only demonstrate to those around them that they care for them, they will also cultivate a life of motivation. They will show that they are willing to step out and do what is right without having to be constantly reminded and prodded.

I WILL:

  1. Do what is right before being told.
  2. Not put off until later what I can do now.
  3. Do my part for the team.
  4. Be a part of the solution rather than the problem.
  5. Look for ways to help others.
