#61: The Power of Core Values in Transforming Businesses

In today’s episode of Finding the Upside, I am exploring the transformative impact core values can have on a business. I dive deep into the heart of successful organizations, revealing how core values shape company culture, drive decision-making, and attract like-minded employees. Learn why core values go beyond words on a wall, providing a sense of purpose, guiding tough decisions, and fostering inclusivity. Real-world examples from companies like Apple, Southwest Airlines, Zappos, Costco, and Patagonia highlight the transformative power of core values in defining a company’s identity and success. Discover why core values aren’t just statements but the lifeblood of a company, influencing behavior, and creating a positive workplace. Tune in to find inspiration to integrate core values into your workplace, transforming the way you operate and thrive.
