Give Your Values Value
Distility Values Workshop
Values Run Your Firm
Every company has values, but few effectively communicate them. When values are carefully defined and understood, everyone knows the right and wrong way to make day-to-day decisions. But too often, values provide no actionable guidance. To quote the Harvard Business Review: “Most values statements are bland, toothless, or just plain dishonest. And far from being harmless, as some executives assume, they’re often highly destructive. Empty values statements create cynical and dispirited employees, alienate customers, and undermine managerial credibility” (July 2002, Harvard Business Review).
Why Choose Distility
We won’t let you create bland, toothless or dishonest values. We work with you to determine the kind of values statement you need, based on what will work best for you and your team. Whether it’s basic values for a startup or core values for a long-standing business, we apply our expert facilitation and coaching abilities to stress test every idea, so your values are actionable – not laughable.
In Just 1 Day
After in-depth, one-on-one interviews with you and your team, we compile all of your firm’s potential values. When it’s time for your workshop, this list serves as the framework for our discussion. Our patented workflow then captures new ideas freely, without the dangers of groupthink. In the afternoon, we push your team to commit to the right values, so you leave the day with results you can leverage immediately.
The Added + of Distility
