   - It believes that the organizational goals and the development of their people as one whole, impossible to divide. …. In a DDO, the goals of profitability and fostering development are not a both/and, and they are not an either/or.

   - A DDO does not treat what is happening inside a person (their thoughts, feelings and reactions to what is happening to them outside of work) as outside the bounds of what can be talked about at work. “DDOs explicitly uncover and overturn the customary pretense that work is public (i.e., external), the personal is private (i.e., internal), and so the personal should not be part of work.” P. 106.   - A DDO does not treat what is happening inside a person (their thoughts, feelings and reactions to what is happening to them outside of work) as outside the bounds of what can be talked about at work. “DDOs explicitly uncover and overturn the customary pretense that work is public (i.e., external), the personal is private (i.e., internal), and so the personal should not be part of work.” P. 106.
