Photo credit John LavittAt the latest installment of the ongoing Leader’s Luncheon series at the University Club in Pasadena, Conscious Leadership Connection CEO Mark Lefko gave an inspired presentation. Demonstrating with concrete examples how focusing on a value-based company culture can lead to success, Mark Lefko provided viable tools for the Pasadena business leaders. By fostering a business culture that focuses on values and principles, a company can find a true bearing and equilibrium in a fast-paced interconnected world.Presented by Board of Governors Member Howard Raff and President James Harwood of Total HR Management, James Lefko proved to be a strong addition to the ongoing series. Challenging the business leaders to express their own perspectives, Mark Lefko asked each of them to choose their own values and principles from a sheet he provided. From a list of over 60 options, the participants were asked to circle five. Considering the quality of the choices, it was not an easy task.Mark Lefko described his own perspective on such a choice when he said, “Respect is my highest value; honoring the choices that other people choose to make…. Identifying your values is the simple part. Owning those values and living them is the challenging part of the equation.”Once a business owner has identified their company values, the next step is to help your team understand and utilize those values in practice. The goal is to carry the values into a company’s brand messaging. By making such a transition, the success within can be translated beyond into greater profits and productivity.In the past, Mark Lefko has coached and mentored 100+ CEOs and Presidents, leading strategic planning retreats, corporate think tanks and industry roundtables. Given such a cornucopia of experience, combined with his accomplished corporate background, it was a huge plus for the University Club in Pasadena to have him present at the Leader’s Luncheon Series. Providing a wealth of resources, the University Club continues to be a valuable asset for the Pasadena community.About the AuthorGrowing up in New York City as a stutterer, John Lavitt embraced writing as a way to express himself when the words would not come.
