Let’s talk about values in leadership
In October 2021, ILM published Leading through Values, a report researching the importance of values. The report features case studies from a number of businesses, exploring what values mean for them, how values are being brought to life in everyday operations and how they’ve withstood the challenges faced during the pandemic. Read the Executive Summary.
We discovered that company values are an integral part of their leadership models and ultimately play an essential role in:
- Defining organisational purpose and goals
- Standardising strategy and operational delivery
- Directing learning and development
- Performance management
- Talent attraction, recruitment and retention
- Improving customer relations
Designed and delivered in collaboration with ILM, the event explore how values are more than simple statements or ideals and how you can use them to build leadership capability and drive business growth.
