It means delivering on promises and seeing through initiatives no matter how challenging the circumstances might be. It can be considered as a contract between the bank and its stakeholders: employees, customers, regulators, etc . . . and no matter what situation could arise, one should always be seen to be committed to delivering on what that contract embeds:
willingness to go the extra mile in-order to deliver beyond expectations

Creating an environment where employees feel confident in expressing their views in the knowledge that these will be valued, even where they run counter to prevailing thinking:

Setting clear expectations whilst at the same time giving employees the freedom to achieve their goals in the way which is best determined by individual talents.
Allowing employees to take measured risks, recognizing that creativity comes from experimentations rather than limiting our thinking to the tried
