For some, work defines who they are, how they are able to contribute to society or it may define their fundamental existence. It is a sustenance allowing us to pursue our hobbies, extracurricular activities and non-work related duties. We dedicate a major portion of our daily life to this activity called work. When you pursue work, you become a part of an organization. You are an integral part of the organization’s machinery that keeps the pistons of the engine reciprocating. The fundamental question is - Who are we in these organizations and how do they align with our values?
In this session, we will explore our authentic self. How our personal values align with the organization in which we work. We will determine how we express our values in these organizations using the “six values perspective” - Grounding, Family, Management, Relational Awareness, Systems Awareness, and Expansion. We will discuss a values-driven leadership framework considering cultural and social norms as we move through these unprecedented times.
