You measure results religiously. How often do you measure how well you and your company’s formal leaders treat others in your work culture?

Just as you measure progress towards desired results regularly, you must measure progress towards desired respect regularly.

You must gather objective feedback through regular assessments – at least twice annually – that enable employees to rate how well your company’s leaders model your values and behaviors.

By measuring values and respect in a formal way, you can then refine every leader’s efforts and, ultimately, improve the quality of your company’s culture.

The problem is that very few leaders have been asked to measure values or respect across their organization. Most don’t know how. Doing a values survey poorly is worse than not doing a values survey at all. Lousy questions result in lousy data that is not helpful or actionable.

You need proven expertise to help you build a values assessment platform to gather insightful feedback and to act on the objective data you collect. I have that expertise. I’ve been helping clients measure values and respect for decades.

Our values assessment platform helps you:

  • Create an effective values survey based on your desired culture
  • Administer your effective values survey, gathering values feedback on all formal leaders
  • Debrief your survey results
  • Coach individual leaders to demonstrate your valued behaviors in every interaction

In today’s three-minute episode of my Culture Leadership Charge video series, I share how important the structure of your survey items (questions) is.

Thanks for your patience. Last month I had disk fusion surgery so was unable to do a video or podcast for you all. This month I’m back on track!

This is episode ninety-two in that series. Each episode is a 3-4 minute video that describes proven culture leadership and servant leadership practices that boost respect and results across your work teams, departments, regions, companies, homes, and communities.

You’ll find my Culture Leadership Charge episodes and more on my YouTube, iTunes, and Amazon Podcast channels. If you like what you learn, please subscribe.
