What does living your business values really mean?

Have you ever heard the phrase "our values are more than just words on a wall" and felt a little bit suspicious?

In this video, I explore this phrase, focusing on the value of collaboration as an example. According to a recent MIT Sloan Review, collaboration is the 2nd most common business value. So what does living the value of collaboration look like in practice?

It turns out that living our business values is not that easy to do.

I also share some practical tips about how businesses can buck the trend, and start to better live their values:

🧪 conduct a values litmus test

🎭 infuse more personality into your values

📏 systematically update your people practices to better align with your values
