The Importance of Values

Like a Stick of Rock!

Listen here.

The dictionary definition of values is…

“Principles or standards of behaviour…one’s judgement of what is important in life”. This very much relates to ethics and morals.

One way of considering “Values” is like a stick of rock…If you cut it open you could see the colours running through it…The DNA!

Values can be considered in a number of ways.

As individuals, they reflect how you live your life and your principles. This will then cut across relationships and how you treat people…Trust, openness, and the importance that you put on relationships.

This then naturally translates into individuals work lives. It would be unusual to change your values. Business will have organisational values which will reflect how they operate within teams and how the business wants to be perceived by others. This could include environmental issues or the passion to go the extra mile in all areas.

At Solution Focused, we are passionate about helping our clients to understand how to make sustainable change and to deliver both personal and organizational “Peak Performance”.

We understand the importance of values, and the feedback from our clients tells us that our DNA is quite evident! So, what are our values?

  •  Do the right thing…Do what feels right for the client and their business
  •  Do it well…Question mediocrity every day, to be the best we can be
  •  Do it with passion…Be passionate about what we do and why we do it and then…show it!

Values form an especially important part of all you do. It takes no longer to live your values and will always make you both behave the right way, and question what you do.

Live and breathe your values.

Are your values clear to everyone in all that you do?

“When your values are clear to you, making decisions becomes easier.”
