“Values are like finger prints. Nobody’s are the same but you leave ’em all over everything you do.” Elvis Presley
Elvis had it spot on. We all have values, whether we are aware of them or not. We all have expectations, of ourselves and others, based on what our values are. We often make decisions through the lens of our values. When we experience life through our values, all is good with the world. When we’re living at odds with our values, things start to unravel. If not addressed and dealt with, the costs of not living our values extends to negative impacts on mental and physical health.
This book explains what values are, why they matter, the different types of conflict or tension that can arise, when we’re not living our values and how this all shows up in the workplace. For leaders, e.g., CEOs, c-suite executives, HR, executive coaches, the book also explains how to decipher the leadership team’s actual values, not just the nice sounding ones.
