AS GUIDELINES THAT DICTATE BEHAVIORS AND ACTIONS
1. LEARN BY YOURSELF & CHALLENGE YOUR WAY OF DOING
Values reflect what is important to you, how you want to implement your vision, the nature of beliefs. Values you had defined for your playing field create very strong foundations that gives purpose to your daily actions
The values of a company ("corporate values") are the principles on which it bases itself to evolve in its sector and to make its strategic decisions. These principles can be moral (loyalty to customers and employees, superior quality in all circumstances ...) societal (respect the environment, develop a more ethical business model ...). They can also take a marketing dimension (proximity to customers, adaptability ...) or reflect a strategy (innovate, be always at the forefront ...). The values of a company reflect the vision of its leader, his way of conceiving entrepreneurship. [Read more]
Some examples :
Puma: Brave, confident, determined, joyful
L'Oréal: Integrity, respect, courage, transparency
Adidas: Performance, passion, integrity, diversity
Nike: Performance, authenticity, innovation, sustainability
Do not choose too many values, a top 5 seems more than enough to target your goals and expectations. Dispersal can be detrimental and may dilute your identity: it will be more difficult to read and your values more difficult to reconcile.
Avoid values that are too "basic". Clarify, refine.. to make them as relevant as they are striking!
Define is good, apply is better! Your values should not be confined to the fate of an A4 placarded next to the coffee machine. They must be constantly promoted, inculcated and put into practice on a daily basis.
