In ordinary organizations, they hang on the wall. In extraordinary organizations, they come to life in the hearts of your people.
Have you ever had an encounter with a business that was so remarkable it made you wonder, “How did they do that?”
I’ve had several. However, the one that stands out as epic was Heathman Lodge in Vancouver, Washington. It was such an epic encounter that I’m still talking about it some six years later. It was also the encounter that crystallized the connection between vivid values living in the hearts of people and remarkable service. I share it on the Higher Purpose Podcast. You can listen online or download it on iTunes.
What’s an organization that impresses you for the way they live out their values? I guarantee you it didn’t happen by accident. It was intentional. The values come alive and make remarkable encounters more common than not.
And it can happen anywhere. Big company, little company, and every in-between company. It can happen for you!
When it does, it’s transformational.
That’s what we explore in this podcast episode.
My friend, Hagen Kern, joined me to talk about the transformational journey he and his wife (Christy) began just a few months ago to bring purpose and values to life in their Junk King business in Chicago. I hope their story inspires you.
Live your values today!
By the way, if you think bringing values to life in your organization is something you’d like to do, then our Value of Values Checklist will help.
