Creating Core Values with David Quick Beyond The Ordinary

    • Investing

Core values are the backbone of an organization. They offer a way to define the company as a whole, its unique culture, and what it stands for. With core values at the foundation for all organizational behavior, how can leaders set a clear expectation for their people to adhere to these values?
In today’s episode, Tommy talks with David Quick, CEO at Helping Bulls Thrive in China Shop, TEDx Speaker, and Vistage Chair.
At Helping Bulls Thrive in China Shop, David is committed to helping bulls (business owners, CEOs, and business leaders) thrive through speaking sessions, executive coaching, organizational coaching, sales training/coaching, team assessment, development, and hiring. He has impacted more than 300 CEOs nationwide, been featured on TEDx, and is a regular presenter at Vistage meetings. His vision is to make more than just a “small corner of the world” a better place to live in by helping business leaders thrive.

Quotes
[0:56] - "For me, bull is a gender-neutral term. It is someone that is in a position of power that has this kind of remarkable focus on life. It is a power-passion-looking-forward persona. So it's not a male-driven analogy." - David Quick
[04:49] - "The core values should set the tone and tenor of how we want everyone to act and behave. It should set a metric that we can measure people by." - David Quick
[34:07] - "We (leaders) each have our own persona, our own method, and our own way. You gotta find your own way to communicate and give feedback. It should be more positive most of the time and the negative should demonstrate a challenge to do better. It needs to come with a voice of 'I care'. Otherwise, it just feels like you're tearing people down." - David Quick
[39:47] - "The essence of leadership is to set this clear compelling vision of the future, set a standard for behavior that is set in your core values, set really high expectations, and then engage like hell. Find people on your team, be present, give praise, and challenge them directly." - David Quick
