Values are universal - we all have them

Each of us has our own unique personal pattern of priority values. Values are big, emotionally rich ideas that help us make sense of the world and our place in that world. Our values give rise to our choices and our behaviours. Our values shape how we feel about, respond and rise to both our daily life and our ultimate grand plan.

There are no good or bad values. Each value shows up to serve: to help us withstand or resolve something, to strengthen our relationships with others or our sense of connection with our own skills and talents .

Conscious connection with values has measurable positive impacts. Connection can increase innovation, productivity, trust, confidence and courage while reducing the harmful effects of stress and fear.

Values are hot stuff!
