Each employee brings his/her own unique set of personal skills, experiences and values into the organisation, challenging the existing culture. Unfortunately, most leaders put their effort on maintaining rather then developing their culture because they live in the illusion that the core of culture is its norms. They seem to ignore the fact that personal values arise from personal life-experiences on a very personal life-journey. With a more Conscious Values Perspective your people become aware of the true potential of values and corporate culture.
A deep sense of meaning and significance arise from within each individual when she/he is enabled to live according to his/her own most important values at work. A cultural win-win situation can be established by integrating the desired life-journey of the person with the planned life-journey for the organisation by aligning personal and corporate core values on the deepest level of personal Knowing – the experiences and stories.
Building a conscious values perspective is not a simple game with value words/cards to make people feel good; it is serious business from both sides building strategic advantage and ethical competitiveness, through increased personal meaning that unlocks the will in people to realise their full potential within the company.
