It’s all about your values

Our values inform our thoughts, words, and actions.

 

Every individual and every organisation make hundreds of decisions every day. The decisions we make reflect our values, beliefs and behaviours, and they are always directed towards a specific purpose.

That purpose is the satisfaction of our individual or collective (organisational) needs.

 

 

When we use our values to make decisions, we deliberately choose to focus on what is important to us. When we share them, they build internal cohesion in a group.

 

Did you know that we find four types of values in an organisational setting? Do you know what your values are? These consist of individual, relationship, organisational, and societal values.

 

 

Individual Values:

 

Individual values reflect how you show up in your life and your specific needs-the principles you live by and what you consider essential for your self-interest. Individual values could include enthusiasm, creativity, humility, and personal fulfilment.

 

 

Relationship Values: 

 

Relationship values reflect how you relate to other people in your life, be they friends, family, or colleagues in your organisation. Relationship values include openness, trust, generosity, and caring.

 

 

Organisational Values: 

 

Organisational values reflect how your organisation shows up and operates in the world. These include financial growth, teamwork, productivity, and strategic alliances.

 

Societal Values: 

 

Societal values reflect how you or your organisation relates to society. Societal values include future generations, environmental awareness, ecology, and sustainability.

 

 

Our values are important because they help us to grow and develop. They help us to create the future we want to experience. Think about what your values are and apply them to every situation.
