At GCBB, our goal is to be a great bank that is focused on YOUR dreams & goals. Our core values are trust, integrity, passion, tenacity, accountability, and coachability.

The 30 fundamentals below are the behaviors that define our core values. They are what sets us apart.
  1. Do the right thing always:
    Demonstrate an unwavering commitment to doing the right thing in every action you take and in every decision you make, especially when no one’s looking. Always tell the truth, no matter the consequences. If you make a mistake, own up to it, apologize, and make it right.
  2. Deliver Results:
    While effort is important, people expect results. Follow up on everything and take responsibility to ensure that tasks get completed. Set high goals, use measurements to track your progress, and hold yourself accountable for achieving those results.
  3. Go the Extra Mile:
    Be willing to do whatever it takes to accomplish the job . . . plus a little bit more. Whether it’s starting early, staying late, or doing something that’s not in your job description, it’s the extra mile that separates the ordinary from the extraordinary.
  4. Honor Commitments:
    Do what you say you’re going to do, when you say you’re going to do it. This includes being on time for all phone calls, appointments, and meetings. If a commitment can’t be fulfilled, notify others early and agree on a new deliverable to be honored.
  5. Listen to Understand:
    Listening is more than simply “not speaking.” Give others your undivided attention. Be present and engaged. Minimize the distractions and let go of the need to agree or disagree. Suspend your judgment and be curious to know more, rather than jumping to conclusions.
  6. Speak Straight:
    Speak honestly in a way that helps to make progress. Say what you mean, and be willing to ask questions, share ideas, or raise issues that may cause conflict when it’s necessary for team success. Be courageous enough to say what needs to be said. Address issues directly with those who are involved or aff
  7. Get Clear on Expectations:
    Create clarity and avoid misunderstandings by discussing expectations upfront. Set expectations for others and ask when you’re not clear on what they expect of you. End all meetings with clarity about action items, responsibilities, and due dates.
  8. Do What's Best for the Clients:
    In all situations, do what’s best for the client, even if it’s to our own short-term detriment. Put their needs ahead of our own. There’s no greater way to build a reputation than to steadfastly do what’s right for others. Every day.
  9. Show Meaningful Appreciation:
    Recognize people doing things right, rather than pointing out when they do things wrong. Regularly extend meaningful acknowledgment and appreciation — in all directions throughout our organization.
  10. Think Team First:
    It’s not about you. Don’t let your ego or personal agenda get in the way of doing what’s best for the team. Be there for each other and be willing to step into another role or help a co-worker when that’s what’s required for success. Help each other to succeed.
  11. Take Ownership:
    Take personal responsibility for making things happen. It’s never someone else’s job or someone else’s fault.  Be resourceful and show initiative.  If you see it, own it, and make sure it gets done.  Don’t make excuses.
  12. Make Quality Personal:
    Demonstrate a passion for excellence and take pride in the quality of everything you touch and everything you do. Have a healthy dislike for mediocrity. Good is not good enough. Always ask yourself, “Is this my best work?”
  13. Be a Lifelong Learner:
    Seek out and take advantage of every opportunity to gain more knowledge, to increase your skills, and to become a greater expert. Be resourceful about learning and sharing best practices.
  14. "Bring It" Everyday:
    Have a passion for what we do and be fully engaged. Make the most of each day by approaching every task with energy, focus, purpose, and enthusiasm. Work with a sense of urgency to get things done with a positive attitude.
  15. Practice Human Connection:
    Show people you care about them as individuals, and not just as transactions. Pay attention to the things that make people unique.  Use handwritten notes, personal cards, and timely phone calls to acknowledge their significance.
  16. Think and Act Like an Owner:
    Make decisions by asking yourself, “What would I do if this were my company? What would I do if this were my own money? Will this help the company to succeed?” Be a good steward of our resources.
  17. Follow Operating Procedures:
    Rigorously follow our operating procedures to ensure consistency and high performance. Be especially mindful of our industry regulations, as these are outright requirements for doing business.
  18. Practice Blameless Problem Solving:
    Demonstrate a relentless solution focus, rather than pointing fingers or dwelling on problems. Identify lessons learned and use those lessons to improve ourselves and our processes so we don’t make the same mistake twice. Get smarter with every mistake. Learn from every experience.
  19. Be a Fanatic About Response Time:
    Respond to questions and concerns quickly, whether it’s in person, on the phone, or by e-mail. This includes simply acknowledging that we got the question and we’re “on it,” as well as keeping those involved continuously updated on the status of outstanding issues.
  20. Be Relentless About improvement:
    Regularly evaluate the way you/we work to find ways to improve. Don’t be satisfied with the status quo. “Because we’ve always done it that way” is not a reason. Guard against complacency. Find ways to get things done better, faster, and more effi
  21. Embrace Change and Growth:
    What got us here is not the same as what will get us to the next level. Get outside your comfort zone, rather than stubbornly hanging on to old ways of doing things. Be excited by the possibilities that change and growth bring. Be flexible.
  22. Pay Attention to Details:
    Missing just one detail can have an enormous impact on a job. Be a fanatic about accuracy and precision. The goal is to get things right, not simply to get them done. Double-check your work. Get the details right the first time.
  23. Own Your Work-Life Balance:
    Own and protect your work-life balance. Know and communicate boundaries and when you need to take a break to refresh and recharge. To give your best, you must be at your best. Be a steward of our most valuable resource: you!
  24. Treat Each Other Like Family:
    Our relationships go deeper than simply being teammates at work. We genuinely care for and about each other. Whether it’s a kind word during a tough stretch, a friendly smile each morning, or a helping hand in stressful times, show your compassion.
  25. Pitch in Whenever Necessary:
    Be willing to do the mundane and ordinary things necessary to get the job done. Nothing is beneath any of us. If you see it, take care of it.
  26. Fix Problems at the Source:
    Address issues by discovering the root cause rather than simply tackling the symptoms. It’s better to invest time in developing a long-term solution rather than simply applying a “Band-Aid.”
  27. Be Vigilant About Confidentiality:
    Our clients share information with us because they need and trust us. Honor that trust by keeping their information in confidence and taking appropriate steps to safeguard how and where it's used. The same is true for information about our own organization as well as about your teammates.
  28. Create Win/Win Solutions:
    It’s a 2-way street. Learn to think from others’ perspectives. Discover what they need and find a way to help them meet those needs while also fulfilling your own. Win/win solutions are always more effective and longer lasting than win/lose solutions.
  29. Look Ahead and Anticipate:
    Solve problems before they happen by anticipating future issues, planning for contingencies, and addressing them in advance. Work with appropriate lead times. Preventing issues is always better than fixing them.
  30. Keep Things Fun:
    While our passion for excellence is real, remember that the world has bigger problems than the daily challenges that make up our work. Stuff happens. Keep perspective. Don’t take things personally or take yourself too seriously. Laugh every day.
