The TIM model was developed by Nir Golan, Educational & Leadership expert. It is based on seven 21st century abilities:
Truth- Problem solving & Critical thinking
Imagination- Digital expert, Global awareness & Creativity
Morality- Communication & Collaboration
6 integrity rules were defined according to the TIM model:
1. Recognize and affirm leadership integrity as a core organization value.
Leaders provide a framework to make sense of a flood of seemingly disconnected facts and information. They should commit themselves to truth-seeking and truth-telling by using Problem solving & Critical thinking.
The process of truth-seeking is grounded in a commitment to honesty and integrity in the organization work. It is a responsibility of every leader to discuss and affirm that commitment in his team.
2. Create a lifelong commitment to learning and professional development.
The first job of a leader is to demonstrate that learning can be a captivating and joyful experience, especially when it entails finding creative ways to explore interesting, important, and challenging questions. Use Imagination- Digital expert, Global awareness & Creativity
3. Promote the leader as guide and mentor.
From the days of Plato’s Academy, leadership and education were seen as encompassing human relationship grounded in the pursuit of truth. Leaders will find that their greatest impact on employees–including inspiring a commitment to professional integrity–comes in the context of personal connection and mutual respect.
4. Encourage employee responsibility for professional integrity.
The demonstrated effectiveness of traditional and modified honor codes, converging with the coming of age of the millennial generation, should accelerate the movement to give employees significant responsibility to promote and protect the highest standards of professional integrity. Employees want to work in communities where competition is fair, and integrity is respected.
5. Clarify expectations for employees and develop fair and creative forms of assessment
Defining and enforcing professional integrity standards should be a shared undertaking with employees. Nonetheless, leaders have primary responsibility for designing the organization environment and experience. They must clarify expectations in advance regarding honesty in professional work, including the nature and scope of employee's collaboration. Most employees want such guidance, and welcome it in work, reviewed by their leaders. Employees expect their professional work to be fairly and fully assessed. Leaders should use–and continuously revise–forms of assessment that require active and creative thought, and promote significant learning opportunities for employees.
6. Help define and support community-wide professional integrity standards.
Although leaders should be the primary role models for professional integrity, the fact is that defining, promoting, and protecting professional integrity must be a community-wide responsibility—not only to identify repeat offenders, and apply consistent due process procedures, but also to affirm the shared values that make organizations true communities. In this sense, an important aim of a carefully designed professional integrity program should be to serve as a foundation for other efforts to enhance employee's ethical development, and Morality- Communication & Collaboration.
According to the TIM model we have to teach each skill or ability alone and then combine all of them together. Only the combination will lead them to success. The rules teach employees to build on the integrity.
