Quintessence Ideals show us what we aspire to. They shape our orientation and our future.
The extent to which we commit ourselves to them defines our personal integrity. Motivations are primal forces of the will which often remain hidden and do not come to light until actions are performed – it can therefore be very fruitful to look for them.
What motivations make you act as you do? Rules are relationships we must recognize if we are to find proper ways of working and apply them. Learning is essential.
Sustainability is part of Model’s history. It is part of who we are, and it is part of our present. In our eyes, it’s not something that’s located in the future, even though we do set targets for it. We believe that being sustainable means being switched-on and alert, continuously making improvements, whether big or small – without being forced to.
