Formalizing and adopting clear values in your organization or team does have a immediate and positive impact on morale, trust, and growth.
When organizations approach this as a 1-time investment, they can expect a 1-time bump. If shown graphically, it would likely be a sharp spike followed by sharp decline. The decline may be more, less, or equal to the initial spike.
The real benefit comes in committing to continuous investments in reinforcing the values – every decision of every leader of every department and all team members!
Rather than resembling an ECG readout, there would be one initial increase, followed by thousands of smaller spikes before the previous one has a chance to decline – representing the completely different organization you have just made!
Revenues, customer successes, employee retention, profitability, and many other critical metrics will follow similar growth patterns as well.
