Today’s conversation is about Core Values.

The term “values” comes up a lot these days, but I’m pretty dissatisfied with how surface level the conversations are around it.

“Hire for values train for skill”

“Core Values are the foundation of a strong culture”

“They didn’t align with our values”

You get the gist.

Now we can all agree values are extremely important and deep, but I always want to get behind the buzzwords and figure out what’s really going on.

In order to find out what really makes a difference we have a friend of the show, Dr.Ken Kies, returning on this episode of Contractor Evolution.

Dr. Keis holds a PHD in leadership and management and is the president of Consulting Resources Group, a global consultancy focused on team building, leadership, and communications.

In this episode he shares with us:

-Why 80% of the working population is unhappy with their career and the role values play in that

-How to go think about, talk about, and write about your core values so they’re way more than just some 5 dollar words on a poster that no one actually understands

-And perhaps most importantly, how to assess core values fit in an interview so that you don’t find out the hard way 6 months later that you are indeed not at all aligned
