If our core values are fundamental beliefs, they are part of us whether we are at work or at home, for they guide our actions, decisions, and behavior. Such values help us recognize right from wrong and contribute to our personal integrity.
As healthcare providers, we owe our patients the very best we have each day. That means serving them with dignity, compassion, honesty, technical excellence, humility, and professional integrity. If we don’t hold those values dear, we fail.
Small business owners have the responsibility to lead their teams to success, and, therefore, set the example. Why not hold a team meeting to revisit the practice vision and purpose, and to share what each person values? Work together to develop a culture with shared values that focus on service, respect, relationships, integrity, optimism, and humor. Doing so will enhance the satisfaction gained by serving others while adding joy to every day.
Core values. They define who we are and how we behave. What are yours?
“Values become easier when we truly believe core values really do have value, and that they create value.”
John G. Blumberg
