What are core values? They are a small set of vital and timeless guiding principles for your company. A good rule of thumb is to limit them to somewhere between three and seven. As always, less is more. These core values define your culture and who you truly are as people. When they are clear, you’ll find they attract like-minded people to your organization. You will also find that when they are applied in your organization, they will weed out the people that don’t fit. Once they’re defined, you must hire, fire, review, reward, and recognize people based on these core values. This is how to build a thriving culture around them.
– Traction by Gino Wickman
Our Members choose to be straightforward, honest and forthright, both with our words and our intentions. We get to-the-point by being direct, real and even vulnerable, because we understand that vulnerability leads to accountability and is the truest source of genuine authenticity. We don’t waste each others’ valuable time.
GET TO KNOW EACH OTHER.
We put people first, without exception. We want to hear your story and understand your Why. We enter professional relationships with a mutual respect of the roads each other have traveled and an appreciation of the milestones we’ve reached. This why our key differentiator is a Membership list of individuals, not of companies or organizations.
LEARN BY TEACHING.
There are 2 types of best practices: those we learn from others, and those we learn the hard way. Every day, Members of The Executives’ Club contribute to the depth of knowledge and the breadth of experience of our circle. We accept teaching as an integral responsibility of managing. If we’re not teaching, we’re not really leading.
CREATE BIG MOMENTS.
We look for opportunities to create moments in the world that are pivotal, empowering and defining. Most people miss these daily opportunities because they’re looking through too large a lens; they’re looking at the whole world, rather than their world. The best leaders understand how to show up in the small, even mundane encounters and interactions we each experience every day.
Purpose. Fulfillment. Significance. Our Executives’ Club Members chart a path that will impact the lives of others and make a difference in our communities. We love what we do, but understand that our jobs don’t define us as individuals. Through commitment and discipline to our first 4 core values, we set a course to the 5th!
