Our Values Exercise
I have had an interesting journey over the past four months, the business has been taking shape for growth, and we’ve been working on making it future proof by doing a Values exercise for the business and with ALL our Business Consultants and Contractors, which is something that is nor done often in this industry, or any.
So how have I done this? Before I go into the how let’s look at why.
A value-based business is essential for its survival. By value, I mean the guiding principles of a business rather than the cost of the business or the value it provides. Knowing the guiding principals and keeping these at the top mind for business decision keeps us in check and true to who we are.
So what did I do? First, I sat down and wrote my values which I tend to yearly – so looking at values which resonated with me. Then I went through the values I would instil in the business, and they aligned very closely to my personal values:
My Personal values described are Honesty, Mindfulness, Loving, Accomplishment, Excitement, Spirituality, confidence and Prosperity.
The values of the business are “Love what we do, live by what we say we do and share what we do”.
Knowing my personal values, and standing by them means anything I bring into our business is authentic, and I think our Business Values reflect this.
