Today, my guest and dear friend, Natalie Gingrich of the Ops Authority has some tough questions for us:
As the CEO of your business, how can you make confident decisions about the best direction for your company if you don’t have a clear vision of what you stand for? How can you attract the right clients and say no to the ones not aligned to you, if you haven’t defined the values that you hold most deeply?
The hard truth is that you can’t. You have to define, refine, and incorporate your core values and let them create the foundation for your business before you can do the work that is most aligned for you.
In this episode, Natalie shares how she defined her core values, her experiences with making business decisions that weren’t aligned with her values, and how you can make creating your core values a priority today. If you’re a CEO who doesn’t have a clearly defined set of core values, drop what you’re doing and listen to this episode right now. It might change the whole trajectory of your business.
And if you’re ready to dive in deep, embrace your inner CEO, and transform your business by moving from implementer to strategist, join the waitlist for my signature program the Consulting Framework Accelerator. I can’t wait to see you there.
