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!

I agree holding out for the romance of loving work more than life not helpful. I do advocate seeking work that aligns with some of your priority #values - a route to experiencing work as worthwhile over + above money. Sticking to work/a workplace you hate is bad for our health 😡

Why you should ditch ‘follow your passion’ careers advice

I am thinking of writing a blog about starting a trusteeship during lockdown? Is anyone a new trustee who joined their board in lockdown? What have you found hard? what are your top tips for getting this right? Message me if you are happy to share.

Staff are giving everything they have to protect patients right now. It's so brutal, so exhausting, our hospitals awash with suffering. Please read & please - above all - stay at home, keep safe. We have pregnant women in their 20s in ICUs. Stay home 🙏
