Intentionally evolve the culture in your organization.

Values are valued principles that guide behavior. Values define scope for action and ethical constraints.

  • each member brings their own values to an organization based on personal experiences and beliefs
  • a team or organization may choose to collectively adopt values to guide their collaboration

Values offer guidance to determine appropriate action, even in the absence of explicit agreements.

Collectively adopting a set of values supports the effectiveness of an organization:

  • reduces potential for misunderstanding
  • helps to align decision-making and action
  • attracts new members, partners and customers who are aligned with the organization

Chosen values are an agreement that benefits from regular review.
