Test Core Values

Erika September 12, 2022
Evaluate your values according to these three tests: 

Would you choose this core value over money or new business?  Would you incur a cost to live it fully?
Can you identify the opposite value?  This can help you identify overly broad or nebulous concepts because if a value doesn’t have an opposite then it isn’t really a value.  The opposite of honesty, for example, is dishonesty.  The opposite of frugality is spendthrift.

Can you imagine a version of your business existing without this value (or with the opposite value)?  I have worked with organizations that value teamwork highly (though we usually get more specific than teamwork), but there are organizations built around individual contributors that don’t work as a team.
