Leadership: Values

Values act as an inner compass for leaders, teams and organizations.

Principles are natural laws that are external to us and that ultimately control the consequences of our actions. Values are internal and subjective and represent that which we feel strongest about in guiding our behavior. - Steven Covey

Ask yourself:

When is the last time you reflected on what values you hold as a leader.
What's truly important for you? Your team? Your organization?
What would you go to bat for?

Warm regards
