About the Center for Values-Driven Leadership
The Center for Values-Driven Leadership at Benedictine University
helps top executives and entrepreneurs drive strategic growth
through values-based approaches to culture and leadership.
Why Values-Driven Leadership Matters
Values-driven companies are those that succeed in the marketplace by focusing on the triple bottom line – people, planet and profit. Being a values-driven company is good for business and society because these companies consistently outperform their industry peers and create short-term and long-term value for their stakeholders – customers, employees, investors, communities and the natural environment.
The Center for Values-Driven Leadership (CVDL) is a gathering place where top executives, entrepreneurs and thought leaders come together to innovate at the forefront of values-driven business practice. Housed in the College of Business at Benedictine University, the Center advances its mission through education, research and consulting initiatives:
RESEARCH & RESOURCES
In addition to the Return on Values Project, the CVDL works to answer three primary questions:
- What is the business case for being a values-driven company?
- What does a values-driven company look like?
- How does a company get there (and stay there)?
We also provide new resources each week to celebrate, inspire, and inform values-driven leaders globally. Find insights here, including our best blogs and videos.
