The company's values aren't cliché

The company's values aren't cliché

There are many companies out there that take values as an afterthought. Patrick Lencioni, a business management expert, calls out a value many companies use -- "Be Honest" -- as the minimum behavioral and social standard that is required of any employee.

Companies that don't "value" values, don't vary much from each other and they never really become distinguished enough to be compared to their competitors.

"Values often intersect with moral qualities but good company values shouldn't be defined by something moral."

True core values are unique

True core values are unique

Have you tried reading your company values? Have you read it twice? Do these values stick and are they easy to remember? If not, you probably have the wrong values.

Try to have a maximum of five values where employees can easily remember them and these said values can be applied to everyday tasks and whatever challenges they may face.

Values are more than just words

Values are more than just words

Company values should be taken seriously. If a company is not clear about what they do and don't value then the assumption is that this could lead to many possible frustrations and conflict which is an end result that companies wouldn't want.

Company values are something that the employees can live up to and something that can lead them through tough times that allow them to make difficult decisions regardless of the scenario.

The company's value is the glue that holds everything together for the long run.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
