CORE COMPETENCY #8
We strive to create a corporate culture with core values that are crystal clear. We yearn for a God-honoring workplace where grace and trust are alive and well. Because we are human we will always have relational conflicts, so we are zealots about resolving conflict early. We invite those who won’t live out our values to exit. We experience true joy at work.
RESOURCES IN THE CULTURE BUCKET:
WORKSHEET #8.1: "When your culture and values are crystal clear, your new people will embrace them with confidence." Download this worksheet (PDF), "Our Corporate Culture: Your Confidential Assessment" and distribute to your team members. Then talk about your core values and your corporate culture. What needs to change at your shop?
SURVEY: Create a simple online survey and ask your team members to respond to questions about your core values and your corporate culture. Do they know your core values--and what they mean? Check out the easy-to-use online survey tool at Survey Monkey.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. For a very helpful book on conflict resolution between Christ-followers, read Ken Sande's book, The Peacemaker: A Biblical Guide to Resolving Personal Conflict.
