We welcome change and discovery. We appreciate what is new and different. We are willing to change our thinking and behavior. We transform every difference of opinion into a source for growth.
We keep our agreements. We deliver consistent high quality results based on a systematic and relevant approach. We demand the best of ourselves and others. We are prepared and on time.
Together, we work towards common values and goals. We respect and build on diversity of thought, culture and approach. We acknowledge the contribution of each other and help each other grow.
We create an environment of trust and respect. We do what we say. To improve, we encourage each other to dare to think differently and to find new ways of doing things, including making mistakes.
Each of us takes ownership of our part in BSL. We explore new horizons by asking why, what for and why not. We are flexible. We overcome difficulties and challenges. We make new things happen.
We listen and respond with solution-oriented ideas and action. We care for the world we live in. No matter what happens, we ask ourselves: what is my role in this and what can I do now?
The BSL guiding principle
By creating a powerful and safe learning environment, BSL is dedicated to bringing out the best in our partners* and ourselves.
*We consider our students, clients and suppliers, as well as our faculty, guest speakers and staff as our partners. This also includes anybody else we work with such as entrepreneurs and corporate executives, partner companies and associated universities, parent and sister organizations, and the press.
We believe that entrepreneurship is first and foremost an attitude. Anybody can be an entrepreneur – at any level of any organization.
We also believe that everybody is co-responsible for the world we live in and that everybody, no matter where she is in life or career, can make a difference.
