Define your organizational culture by sharing stories: Turn your team values and organizational purpose into action! Create your value story!
When it comes to Value Stories, let’s start with looking at what your, your team’s or your organization’s values are: The question is, do you know what you consider to be valuable? Does your team know what their values are?
Some Theory: Core and Wish Values
There are two kinds of values that both groups and individuals can recognize, they include:
Core values: These are are the ones that come to you naturally. Without them you wouldn’t be yourself. They’re wired into your mindset or your culture and lead to your natural behavior.
Wish values: These are the ones you aspire to have but unfortunately they don’t come naturally to you…at least not yet. It takes effort on your part to remind yourself that these values are important for your success and that you want to give them special attention. After all more interesting than discovering “who you are” is learning who you could become.
You can only create new value when you protect what is already valuable.Jurgen Appelo, Managing for Happiness
So what does it take to define our values? There are different ways to delve into what’s important to you. One of those ways is to gamify it, as we so often like to do at Management 3.0 Workshops.
