Your Values

What are values?

  • Values can be defined as beliefs or philosophies that are important to you.
  • When applied to aspects of your life they can drive you to accomplish your goals.
  • Values may be individual but equally apply to the organisation you are a part of.
  • Organisations usually subscribe to values they feel are important and help strengthen the business and brand.
  • Values help identify and build the culture of an organisation.

Why is it important to understand your values?

  • Identifying the beliefs or philosophies you feel are important will help you set meaningful goals and further develop your future.
  • Understanding your values will also help you identify potential conflicts when your values and an organisations don’t align

Identify your important values

  • You can begin to identify the values that you feel are important by looking at our Values checklist (pdf). Put a tick next to those that you feel are significant.
  • Also identify those that you feel don’t align with your beliefs. This may help you recognise why sometimes you may struggle in certain situations.
  • Your values may also change over time – as you progress, learn and mature.
