Those were the corporate values of College Pro Painters when I worked for them from 1986-1994. During those years is when I also really learned how to build companies, core values were part of that.
Those core values stuck with me. They are clear, simple, and impacting. They were well thought out by the leadership team who brought them to us. And I remember calling people on them, including myself & my own boss at one time. They worked.
Those values still work today. They are ones that I judge business dealings on frequently. It’s interesting to me that those values ring so true still for me, even though I have my own values for BackPocket COO below – I occasionally judge the business moves of others based on the first core values I learned to live by – College Pros.
Here are mine:
Do What You Love
Deliver What You Promise
Balance Is Key
