Our episode about core values in a relationship has been one of our most popular episodes ever. So when Bud met a business culture expert who doesn’t believe in core values, we knew we needed to have him on our podcast to explain why.
In today’s episode, we’re joined by David Friedman, founder of High Performing Culture and author of Culture By Design. David explains the flaws of core values and why he prefers to talk about “fundamentals” instead.
He even dives into his work to help clients define their “Family Fundamentals,” the fundamental behaviors that a family might believe in.
In this episode, we talk about:
- The difference between values and behaviors
- The danger of statements like “I’ll try to be home early tonight.”
- What David would have done differently and more intentionally in raising his children
- How to develop your family fundamentals
- A weekly process to share and teach fundamentals
Examples of fundamentals:
- Practice blameless problem solving
- Fill each other’s bucket regularly
- Your attitude is always a choice
- Be flexible
