Ponder this: What matters most to them?
Values define what we consider to be important. They are the standards for measuring our bottom-line needs. And more than anything, they are the engine for our actions.
Values are the emotional salary of work, and some folks are drawing no wages at all.
How do your employees’ values align with their work? With the organization? With you? How can you find out? And how can you help them realign if necessary?
Whether you work in Detroit, Dublin, or Dubai, you take your values with you every day. You don’t get to leave them at home. They help you perform and excel. And it’s best when they match up with the work you’ve agreed to do.
