Core Values

The NCRST strives to further values based on behaviour, engaging and relating, decision making and action. Stakeholders interacting with the NCRST and its representatives should consistently experience these values in all interactions and decisions, and all staff members must consciously practice the values so as to develop a consistent values-based approach.


Adherence to moral and ethical principles; soundness of moral character; honesty. Coming across as authentic. Others experience us as being true to what we promise; we are consistent in the way we do things in that this is always based on being truthful, honest and sincere. We are seen to be consistently trustworthy and honest in the way we deal with NCRST work.


Anticipatory, change-oriented and self-initiated behaviour in situations, particularly in the workplace. Proactive behaviour involves acting in advance of a future situation, rather than just reacting. Being prepared, anticipating and considering consequences and placing oneself in a position to deal with and manage them. It means taking control and making things happen rather than just adjusting to a situation or waiting for something to happen. Organisationally it means creating a desired future, and thus taking the initiative to do so. Proactive staff members generally do not need to be asked to act, nor do they require detailed instructions, they are guided by a clear purpose and desire to live up to responsible action.

Passion for Excellence

Passion is an intense emotion compelling, enthusiasm, or desire, in this case we have the passion to excel. Doing anything with excellence of course means that we will do the very best that will be able to be done. We will therefore perform to the best of our own ability, and further those abilities so that we can feel deeply satisfied about our achievements. We strive for personal excellence to make significant contributions to NCRTS excellence. Indeed, performing with excellence will require passion. Although success is never a guarantee, our passion never gives birth to mediocrity. Our excellence starts with getting very clear on the end state we wish to achieve and relentlessly driving towards it every day. We know when to push on (even when you don’t have all the information or the perfect solution) but doing it well and constantly refining as we forge ahead.

Impact Driven

We set and achieve goals, measure results and continuously improve to make a positive difference in the society.
