Creating and implementing shared values is key to the success of your business.
What Are Shared Values?
Shared values are the underlying principles for your business’ purpose. They provide a kind of ethical compass for the decisions and actions your business takes. They also set a framework for working relationships at both management and operational levels.
A recent survey by Deloitte showed that 94% of executives and 88% of employees believe a distinct workplace culture is important to business success. This workplace culture is created by shared values. The same research also found a strong correlation between employees who say they feel happy and valued at work and those who say their company has a strong culture.
How We Will Help You
Q2’s Shared Values Development Workshop will help you to identify the values necessary to achieve your company’s vision.
First, we ask you to complete a prework to get everyone thinking about what’s important to your business.
We will then help your team in brainstorming:
- How values are determined by our fundamental beliefs
- The values that are most important to your business
- Your overall vision for the business
- Your business’ shared values and their definitions
- How to implement your shared values and promote team member buy-in.
What You Will Get
Upon completing the workshop, you will have a set of up to five shared values with definitions. You will also have a powerful commitment statement to ensure your team are prepared to live by these new shared values.
The workshop will help align these values among your team in a way that improves engagement and decision-making.
Over the following six months, you can expect to see team morale improve. Your shared values will help to provide a framework for effective communication and relationships, and a more enjoyable working environment for all. This will be instrumental in driving your business towards achieving your vision.
When Will It Happen?
The shared values workshop is a half-day session, with business owners/directors and/or the senior management team attending, or even all staff for maximum impact.
The workshop can be held at either Q2 HQ or your business premises and scheduled to suit your calendar.
Q2’s Shared Values Development workshops are registered on the Regional Business Partner Network and eligible businesses may qualify for a voucher of up to 50% of the workshop cost.
