Four basic principles form the foundation of City of Owasso's management philosophy & vision:

  1. Together, we must create an environment in which individuals know their ideas and work are valued equally; and
  2. An environment in which they know they can take risk;
  3. Not uncalculated risk, but allow people to be creative and solve problems by taking risk within the parameters of the training, supervision, and support system available;
  4. And, if a mistake is made, you support the individual so that both of you learn from that mistake and learn not to make it again.
