Why is satisfying personal values so vital?

People become motivated and inspired to achieve goals when they believe consciously or unconsciously that their personal values will get satisfied. So, it’s in the best interests of leaders and everyone to create opportunities for their own values satisfaction and the values satisfaction of the people they collaborate with or supervise.

“I have often been baffled when a course of action that was crystal clear to me could be a non-starter for someone else who seemed sensible and intelligent. How could they not see? Now I understand that they may have “seen” just fine, but “valued” very differently.”

Personal values provide:

Extraordinary tools to solve problems concerning relationships, strategies, goals, plans, policies and operations. Personal values are much more than just for relationships.

Clarity, insight and vision that can change expectations of yourself and others.

A way to discover what’s deeply most important to yourself and others that’s often a surprise.

The courage to make decisions and act in ways that would not have been previously considered.
