Are you ready to embark on a transformative journey? This is an absolute must-listen for those savvy enough to venture down “The Road Less Stupid.” In this riveting discussion with Matthew Dashpher-Hughes of Gunner Cooke, you’ll explore the profound significance of Values and how they shape our organisations and our lives.
🔑 Unlocking the Power of Values
One of the central themes of this conversation is the paramount importance of defining values. You’ll understand the value of diversity in many aspects of your organisation. However, when it comes to Values, Matthew stresses that diversity must take a backseat:”Hire for diversity in everything but Values”. Hiring individuals who align with your organisation’s values is crucial to prevent toxicity from seeping into your team and tarnishing customer relationships.

He emphasizes the importance of ensuring clarity and alignment when communicating with others about values, so that everyone is on the same page.
