Core Values represent your innermost parts. They are the heart of what you, your organization, and its employees stand for in the world. No matter what business you own – you’re the heart. Establishing your most important values is crucial to running a business. It is common to develop these for business, but we take a unique approach to establishing core values as we’ve found this path is more effective.
This 10-step guide walks you through establishing the core values for YOU as a CEO, Business Owner, & Entrepreneur. The values established in this process can be used for any business venture you own as it is created from a life purpose angle (rather than business purpose angle) and allows you to build a life that brings fulfillment.
This guide includes:
- Establishing the purpose of values in your life
- Exercises to position your mind for the process
- A starting point for brainstorming your unique values
- A strategy to narrow all the possibilities into four main value words
- Defining your unique words in a custom way that molds to you / your business
- You struggle with making important decisions for your business
- You’re not sure if the current business is what you love anymore
- You created core values for your business before, but rarely reference them
- You’ve avoided making core values for your business because it doesn’t seem important to you
- You’re just now getting started with entrepreneurship and need guidance on building a solid + fulfilling foundation
