A values statement is what you believe in. It's a set of five to seven words that articulate what your team and people in the organization believe in and hold true. Unfortunately, most companies never get around to creating values statements. They have mission and vision statements, but no values statement. The only way you can create an amazing future for your company is if you work in a way that reflects universally shared values. This ensures you do not squander your time and resources rationalizing your actions, and it helps ensure you're not potentially squandering your company's good will. In this course, we'll discuss what a values statement needs to be, how to write it, and how your mission, vision, and values should all tie together.
