What a great idea from the world values day movement to try and ensure values are lived and breathed… not just abstract words.
Why not get your whole team to choose one of your organisational values… and if you don’t have values, agree on one you all think is important for your workplace.
And then encourage everyone to use it to shape their behaviour, interaction and decision making for the entire day.
And then – and this is really important - debrief with the team the next day; did it change their behaviour? If so, how? What did they learn? And critically how can they use this principle day to day?
Let us know what happens!
I thrive on seeing people do things they didn’t think they could do! I draw on my management and leadership experience from working in senior positions in the Metropolitan Police Service, running Focal Point since 2002 and working across all three sectors in the widest variety of environments. Because we rarely learn things first time, we believe it is vital to provide support before, during and after the events we run, in order to get the best from them. Time and time again people have told us how the chance to review their learning and to have their actions reinforced has really helped cement new ways of doing things. This is what has then made the difference that they and we are looking for. I am a fellow of the CIPD and when I am not working with clients I can be seen on the golf courses of Hampshire.
