Why identifying your values is so important and how you can do it today.

Have you ever taken the time to identify your values? I’m here to share a tool which I believe is the foundation for effective leadership and wholehearted living. It’s called Value Identification, and you can access the guide by clicking here

Value Identification is a process where you look at a list of values, identify your top 10, distill it down to your top five, and then eventually your top two. The key is to not spend too much time obsessing over whether you’re going to get it right or wrong. I suggest that you follow your intuition, and circle the ones that you feel show up most frequently in your life.

“Values are who you are and how you express yourself.”

Remember that values are not aspirations; they’re who you are and how you express yourself most often. Values are important to me because they are the core of my decisions, and they tell me if I am headed in the right direction. Then, once you’ve identified your top two values, I encourage you to share them with your circle of trust so your loved ones can help keep you accountable. This is a great family or team exercise. 

Go ahead and give it a try, and send me a note to let me know how it’s working for you. If you have questions, I’m happy to help—just call or email me. I look forward to hearing from you!
