Why are values important?
For each of us as individuals, values guide our actions and reveal what is important to us. The same is true for CTC – its values communicate what the world can expect from it. They guide how CTC treats its customers, employees, shareholders and suppliers. They define what CTC invests in and how it sells and delivers its products and services. CTC’s values shape its character.
CTC needs values because without them, anything goes. And companies that operate that way do not last. What happens when we do not live up to these values? C.S. Lewis wrote “Courage is not one of the virtues, but the form of every virtue at the testing point.” A similar statement can be made about values – they only count when they are tested. No person and no company passes every test – the healthy response is to own and learn from our individual and collective mistakes and to get better, going forward.
