The Mission

An invitation-only community of senior HR leader committed to the advancement of our Organization, our Communities, and Ourselves.

The Sierra Institute Mission is Supported by Our Values

Honesty

This is foundational. Honesty is a building block for trust. TSI Fellows are honest with themselves and with each other.

Trust

We treat what we hear and say within TSI with extreme discretion.You can trust that what is shared does not leave the group.

Curiosity

We are a community of life-long learners who use TSI as an integral part of both personal and professional evolution.

Empathy

We strive to understand before being understood, because that is how we best learn from and support each other.

Humor

While we are very serious about what we do, we are not so serious about ourselves. We relish the opportunity to see the humor in our lives and in each other.

Excellence

We believe a fulfilled life is best realized through the pursuit of excellence in all endeavors.

Self Reflection

The ability to reflect and identify what you stand for, what your values are and what matters most

Balance

The ability to see situations from multiple perspectives, including differing viewpoints, to gain a holistic understanding.

True Self-confidence

More than a mastery of certain skills, true self-confidence enables you to accept yourself as you are, recognizing your strengths and your weaknesses and focusing on continuous improvement.

Genuine Humility

The ability to never forget who you are, to appreciate the value of every person, and to treat everyone respectfully.
