Definitions for "Core Values"
Features associated with the SR 179 corridor that collectively represent what is most important to users and the community.
Essential and enduring, core values are the intrinsic forces that guide much of our behavior. Values are shaped by assumptions that are often subconscious, but which determine how we perceive, think, and feel. Core values stand the test of time and are the tenets which are mostly independent of the competitive environment and current business strategies. Core values are so fundamental that we tend to keep them, whether or not they are rewarded. It is important not to confuse core values with cultural norms, societal values, expectations, or emotions, which are open for change. Changes in technologies or societal values may change the way we work, or our relationships, but our core values do not change. The stability of our core values plays an important part in how we deal with change. Strong values can actually help us to absorb change without losing our character.
