Hi Rebecca, great question. I'm curious how your Core Values were initially established? Did you follow the EOS process for that? Or, some other method?
As @Jeff Chastain190 mentioned already, yes, you review your Core Values at quarterlies and the annual as we check in on our V/TO. I'm in total agreement with him that I don't see them change very often, but they can. And, certainly, if you're undoing a major shift.
I'd be curious to ask your leadership team if they're all in agreement that these are your Core Values that best reflect your team.
Coupled with that, have you done the People Analyzer with your leadership team?
- We use the People Analyzer in the Implementation process when establishing your core values in order to check that we have the right ones.
- For instance, we do the exercise to establish your core values and/or to validate your existing ones. Then, we list the entire leadership team with the core values and do our +, +/-, - check and set the bar on what is acceptable as a team.
- If we see that we have multiple minuses on our team, then we have to ask if that's truly a core value.
We also use the Aspirational, Accidental, and Permission to Play check on core values. You can learn more about that here - https://hbr.org/2002/07/make-your-values-mean-something172
Here's a post I recently wrote on Core Values that may be helpful for you as well - https://www.breakthrough.ceo/blog/how-do-you-effectively-share-your-core-values170
