Even if you can't define what they are, we all operate with a specific set of morals and values. They influence how we make decisions, what we view as important, and how we interact with others.

Typically, we think of these values as impacting our personal actions and decisions, but have you ever thought about the importance of also having core values in your leadership and business? As a leader, you are called on to make decisions every day, interact with employees, manage projects, and address conflicts.

All of these things become easier to do if you have a clear understanding of what your core values are and what they actually mean. Identifying your core values as a leader will help your employees know what’s important to you, and what’s important for your company.

"When your values are clear to you, making decisions becomes easier." Roy E. Disney

If integrity is something you value, then you will act with integrity and make decisions that reflect that. If you value teamwork, you will make sure and provide opportunities for team members to work together, and also acknowledge the teamwork that is happening.

If you value accountability, not only will you seek out others to hold you accountable, but your employees will know that they are also accountable for the work they do. Having a clear set of core values makes your job as a leader easier. It helps define your business and what you stand for. It allows your employees to know what the expectations are in the workplace.
