Start with the Heart.

Friedmanism is dead. The idea that companies need to value profit above all else is giving way to the concept of values based organisation.

Ensuring the values of your business are aligned to those of the people you've hired.

The thing with values is that they aren't just about what's said, they are about action.

If they aren't lived then they are just a statement.

This is even more important in a VUCA world

Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous

To survive you need to be agile and resilient (but you don't need to pivot). 

And the only way to do that successfully is to have the right people.

In this episode I talk with Dr Cherry Vu and Rob England about value driven organisations and why you should put staff first.
