Go-Lean-Six Core Values
With our customers, our partners, and professional consultants at our core, we live these values:
Diligence is defined as “careful and persistent work or effort.” You can’t expect to please
your customers and colleagues if you don’t put in the effort. You have to be consistent.
You must show up every day and do what’s needed whether you feel like it or not.
INTEGRITY AND HONESTY
Always tell the truth and be committed to upholding strong moral and ethical values. We
want to make it easy for our customers to trust us. When you have integrity, you’re
willing to tell the truth, make sacrifices and stick to ethical and moral principles even
when doing so would cost you. Always conduct yourself in a way that your friends and
family can be proud of you.
CONTINUOUS LEARNING AND CONSTANT IMPROVEMENT
Continuous learning and constant improvement mean doing better year over year.
Always seeking to improve ourselves and the business. Seeking both
personal and professional growth in all areas of life.
COMMITMENT TO QUALITY AND EXCELLENCE
We have a commitment to quality and excellence; doing the best we can at all times.
This means, going above and beyond to exceed expectations. For this, we need to cultivate
strong and communicative leadership, to value relationships with family, friends, and
organizations outside of work.
PATIENCE AND PERSEVERANCE
Patience and perseverance are two of the most overlooked values in business. We have
been sold a lie that results must come quickly, and when they don’t come, we quit and
move on to something more promising. When you have patience, you’re willing to
persevere because you know that lasting success takes time and effort.
DISCIPLINE AND SELF-CONTROL
Self-control is the ability to think before acting. To stop yourself from making impulsive
decisions. Discipline and self-control are at the center of our values in business because
you can’t adopt or demonstrate any other value if you lack self-discipline.
Self-restraint will stop you from ruining relationships with your customers, investors, and colleagues.
RESPECT AND COURAGE
The value of “respect” means you’ll treat everyone fairly and with respect. You accept
that all men are created equal and deserve respect. That you’ll appreciate your
customers and be kind, serving them with humility, and a willingness to help them with
their problems. You listen to your customers and employees and appreciate their
contribution to your business. You don’t take them for granted or treat them as inferior.
Our desire is to always have a healthy, collaborative, and empowering culture.
Courage and respect go hand in hand. We need the courage to execute our business values
without fear or compromise. We need to be bold and stick to our values even in the face
of resistance. And we must remain honest with ourselves when we stray from our values,
having the courage to face ourselves with renewed integrity.
