Please bring your top three or four core values to discuss. These should be values that are also your personal values and never change, even if your market changes. They are the “glue” that keeps your employees, your team, yourself together. Focusing on these will help you build a team, network, and “sell” yourself and your company. At North Shore Pediatric Therapy they are:
1) Be Invaluable to your families
2) Think solutions, get results
