Ask 3 Questions to Avoid Sending Mixed Messages

Have you ever driven down the road and approached a sign that makes you giggle because you know that the true message of the sign has been lost in translation? It’s obvious that the sign, often laden with mixed messages, does not really communicate its intended purpose.

So, the precision of the words we choose and the definitions we design together are critical. Revitalizing language that already exists is also a part of keeping values an active and growing tool. I’ve been involved in a number of companies in the last year who have values... The post Is It Time to Change Your Language? appeared first on Jason Barger. ...

If ‘Core Values’ Make You Cringe…

How would you describe the core values of your team in order to bring to life the culture you want? If you winced or rolled your eyes when you read the phrase “core values,” hang with me.
