Values define us. They determine who we are and where we’re headed. When something is that important, don’t you think you would see it everywhere?
Unfortunately, many companies don’t take the time to define their core values, which results in dysfunctional teams. Whether explicit or implicit, every company operates by some set of values. If you’re not defining them, they’re probably defining you!
Take some time and really think about who you are as a company. If you can’t easily identify what your values are, or if they aren’t even part of the discussion, maybe it’s time you reconsider how much you value values.
