When Keaton Ray and I founded MovementX, we set out to do something different. Finding ‘a better way’ became a core tenant of who we are as an organization and representative of the ideals we aspire to achieve.
What exactly that ‘better way’ meant took time to figure out, articulate, and express. Now, it’s clearer to me than ever.
When people look at us, they often see mobile physical therapy, but I’ve never thought of where our physical therapy is being delivered differentiates us.
And when people look at us, they also often see out-of-network physical therapy or cash based physical therapy, but that’s not a new or unique model.
Yes, we can provide physical therapy wherever, whenever, and however you’d like, but that’s not what makes us who we are.
Ultimately, I’ve realized one of the factors it boils down to—and part of the core of what distinguishes one organization from another—is the values it chooses to live by and hold dear.
At MovementX, we strive to be a values driven organization. We are by no means perfect and we can always improve, but we treat our values as a guiding light for all of our decisions and actions.
Our four values—empathy, community, kaizen, and passion x purpose—inform the core of who we are and what we do on a day-to-day basis. And we do it through the lens of helping people move and live their best with physical therapy and personal training.
Over the years, I’ve learned a lot about what it takes to be a truly values driven organization. I’ve had challenging lessons and been fortunate to experience many proud moments. Here are the top 3 take homes in my journey towards becoming a leader in a values driven organization thus far:
