Ahel’s Values


People’s power: Ahel’s first value is its belief that the people with the cause are the most deserving and the most capable of bringing about the change sought. Ahel believes that they are resourceful and powerful, and helps them realize, organize and activate that power through collective leadership and action.

Justice and freedom: Ahel believes in justice and freedom as core values for how it runs its organization, who to partner with and what campaigns and organizations to train and support.

Collective shared leadership: Ahel believes that leadership is enabling the others to achieve shared purpose in the face of uncertainty. It believes that leadership should be shared. Not only should it be shared within a team but also among multiple teams. This provides for a growing community, and a growing campaign and movement. It allows for sustainable effort and impact.

Accountability: Seeking change requires every one of us to hold those in power accountable. To lead collaboratively without “the one leader”, people also need to hold each other accountable. Holding power accouble, holding each other accountable and holding ourselves accountable is one of Ahel’s core values.

Learning: A mindset open to learning, a team open to learning and a community open to learning is the secret for wellbeing, as much as it is the secret for success and sustainable effort. Learning capacity is plasticity and agility and the reason for Ahel’s success and the success campaigns, movements and leaders it coaches.
