QUOTES FROM THIS EPISODE
“Do not start with your team. Start with yourself.”
“If core values simply become posters on the wall and arbitrary pages in a folder somewhere, they are useless.”
“Values are the things that we already do. You just need to identify them through a reflection process, and then once they’ve been identified, refined and crystallize, you need to amplify them.”
“You amplify core values by deliberately infusing them into your decision-making and action-taking.”
“There is no shortage of ideas in the world, but they need to align with our core values.”
“You need to use your core values as a filter for your action-taking and decision-making.”
