Gore’s two key principles of making money and having fun help to develop committed individuals and teams and how the organization translates core values into individual and enterprise behaviors. Additionally, the paper will focus on how Gore aligns underlying assumptions, core values and organization behaviors to create the environment that contributes to positive results and energized people. Finally, it will demonstrate how the Organization Effectiveness team and Human Resource team work together to help achieve these results.
