    Core Values List

    Core values can be one of the most powerful tools we use in our lives to guide us in our decision-making.





Welcome to Our Core Values List!

The following list of core values has been compiled by┬áCirion Group over the years as we’ve pursued leadership development from mentors, friends, business leaders, and other leadership resources such as books, podcasts, articles, and more. The deeper we explore business and the more experience we gain, the more we are convinced of this one simple truth: core values are quite possibly the single greatest component to teamwork, company culture, and success. Without values, teams are bound to mistrust and dysfunction. We hope this list helps you begin to identify your personal and company core values. Enjoy!
