Are you in touch with your core values? How do you determine if a potential employer will honor your values in their workplace? Many workers walk into misery when they accept a position at a company where their values are not in alignment with those of that company.
Cindy Maude, President/CEO of Callahan Creek (a marketing communications agency) addressed a networking group I attended today. Her presentation about women in leadership roles was very compelling. She shared her lessons learned from 20 years of growing a successful business.
But what stuck with me was her message about how important values are to her agency. They are so important that all employment candidates are screened for value alignment by being asked behavioral and situational based interview questions prior to any employment offer being extended.
So, here's another reason to know your core values and how you "show up" with them. Give this some thought before starting your next job search.
