Every organization has values.
Unfortunately, most executive teams do not live by them.
In contrast, high-performance executive teams are fully devoted to their values. To high-performers, the discipline of values is much more than words on posters in the break room or in a booklet on the brochure wall.
High-performance executive teams use their values to guide their decisions and never tolerate behaviors that are inconsistent with their values.
Far too many companies tolerate executives who do not personify their values because they are “making their numbers” or “have been here since the beginning.”
Here are a few Check Points for your consideration:
- Which of your executives most personifies your core values?
- Should “value personification” be a criterion for executive bonuses?
- Are there any executives whose behavior is so counter to your values that it is time for them to go?
