As we move into the month of February, lets reflect on our HCC Value for the month…
Kupono: To be forthright, honest, and fair in your relationships with others.
This is one of our important values that we live by here at the Hawai`i Convention Center. Let’s look at the definitions for each component of this value:
Forthright – going straight to the point; direct.
It’s important that all of us be forthright in what we do in servicing our customers. Being direct and to the point can sometimes be hard to hear, but you will find that people will appreciate it.
Roberta Kravitz, Executive Director, International Society for Magnetic Resonance in Medicine (ISMRM) on what makes them return to Hawai`i:
Honest – honorable in principles, intentions, and actions; upright.
Honesty is probably one of the most critical components of being Kupono, both in our professional and personal lives. Without this trait, we would not have the HCC `Ohana that we do.
Catherine Rydell, Executive Director/CEO, American Academy of Neurology (AAN) shares what makes their Hawai`i conference memorable:
Fair – free from bias, dishonesty, or injustice.
This is demonstrated in how we handle each and every event that has chosen to come to the Center. It doesn’t matter if it’s an event of 10 or 10,000 attendees, everyone is treated equally with fairness and aloha.
Richard Yep, Executive Director, American Counseling Association (ACA) on the service they’ve received in Hawai`i:
It’s important that we remember these values both in our professional and personal lives. The relationships that are formed are the foundation for the HCC.
As we celebrate both Valentine’s Day and President’s day this month, let’s remember our values and respect the relationships that we have made.
And remember, though the month of February is a sad one for a lot of us with the end of the NFL football season, we can look on the brighter side that baseball season is right around the corner!
Aloha and live Kupono!
