Synergy One Companies Vision

Our vision is to be recognized as a leader in the community, known for providing leading innovative services to our clients that produce superior outcomes in management performance, employee productivity, organizational improvements, individual satisfaction, and personal growth and development, and to create a strong partnership among federal state and local agencies.  Through consistent and persistent leadership, we will stand out as employers and business partners of choice.

These ten principles of leadership strongly influence our advocacy, our services and our programs.

Know yourself and seek self-improvement –  In order to know yourself, you have to understand your “be”, “know”, and “do” attributes. Be – what he/she is (beliefs and values), Know – what he/she knows (job, tasks, human nature), Do – what he/she does (implement, motivate, and provide direction).  This is possible by continually strengthening your attributes by reading and self-study.  If you know your strengths and weaknesses, you will know what to improve.  Those leaders who live this principle are genuine, honest, fair, respectful and understanding. Seeking self-improvement means continually strengthening your attributes.

Be technically proficient – As a leader, you must know your job and have a solid familiarity with your employees’ tasks.
Seek responsibility and take responsibility for your actions – Search for ways to guide your organization to new heights. And when things go wrong, they always do sooner or later — do not blame others. Analyze the situation, take corrective action, and move on to the next challenge.
Make sound and timely decisions – Use good problem solving, decision making, and planning tools.
Set the example – Be a good role model for your employees. They must not only hear what they are expected to do, but also see. They will believe what they see.  “We must become the change we want to see.” – Mahatma Gandhi
Know your people and look out for their well-being – Know human nature and the importance of sincerely caring for your workers.
Keep your employees informed – Know how to communicate with not only them, but also seniors, youth and other key people in the organization.
Develop a sense of accountability, ownership and responsibility in your workers – Help to develop good character traits that will help them carry out their professional responsibilities.
Ensure that tasks are understood, supervised, and accomplished – Communication is the key to this responsibility.
Train as a team – By developing team spirit, you will be able to employ your organization, department, section, etc. to its fullest capabilities.

Our culture and values are based on the philosophy that leadership is rooted in who you are and what matters most to you.  We believe recognizing our strengths and weaknesses, and striving for continuous improvement enhances our efficiency and effectiveness.  We value each person we encounter and treat everyone with dignity and respect.  Moreover, we maintain the utmost respect for our clients’ values, vision, and goals.  Therefore, we believe partnering with our clients is critical to our success and their success, as we work together to create and deliver a solution that exceeds their expectations, provides real value, and delivers results.

The eight core values of SOCI are:  people, honesty and integrity, respect and dignity, customers, quality and continuous improvement, teamwork, accountability, and giving back.

1. People –   Getting the best out of people requires putting your best into them.  Really great people make you feel that you, too, can become great.
2. Honesty and Integrity –   To be persuasive we must be believable; to be believable we must be credible; to be credible we must be truthful.  Truth never damages a cause that is just. Integrity is telling myself the truth.  Honesty is telling the truth to other people.  Integrity is its own reward.
3. Respect and Dignity -   All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.
4. Customers –   We will always advocate for the rights and needs of our clients.  Be more humble than a blade of grass, more tolerant than a tree, always offering respect onto others and never expecting any in return.  Always do more than is required of you.  Our customers’ needs and expectations are the driving force behind the decisions we make and the problems we solve.
5. Quality and continuous improvement –   Quality improvement focuses on the client – children/youth, families, communities – how we can make a difference for them.
6. Teamwork –   Alone we can do so little.  Together we can do so much.  Coming together is a beginning.  Keeping together is progress.  Working together is success.
7. Accountability –  We must do ordinary things extraordinarily well.   It is not only what we do, but also what we do not do, for which we are accountable.  Accountability breeds response-ability.
8. Giving back - The strength of leaders is not in how much power they possess but how many leaders they have empowered.  It’s not power gained but power given that makes a long term impact.  A gift opens the way for the giver and ushers him into the presence of the great.
