In today’s episode of IntHERrupt, our host Linda Yates goes over
values and their importance for leaders as the new year begins.
What are your values?
- All a value refers to are things that are IMPORTANT to you. It
could be your health, your family, or your career. Anything that
holds significance to you and carries a lot of weight is one of
your values. The first step in utilizing them as a leader is
- Identify between 3 and 5 of your values and WRITE THEM DOWN.
Now that they’re written down, think, are there ANY of them that
you could live without? If there are, then that’s not a high
- After that, rank your values. Which one is the MOST important
to you? How about the LEAST important?
Why are values important?
- Your values determine what goals you reach, and how you
reach them. If your values do NOT align with your goals,
then you won’t hit that goals! Your goals and values HAVE to align
for you to reach the outcome you’re wanting.
- Values also help teams work together and make decisions
together. If you’re faced with a difficult situation or
dilemma, you can ALWAYS fall back on your values to help you move
- As a leader, values help you lead your team as
well. With a strong, good, set of core values in place
your team either WILL or WILL NOT align with those values. For the
team members that don’t align with your values, you can either help
them realign or find a new team member who does align.
- Your CORE VALUES are designed to help you reach your goals. If
your values don’t help you reach those goals, then you CAN change
- A tip that Linda learned was to have a personal mission
statement. Having a personal mission statement helps to
create unity between you and your team members. Everyone knows WHAT
the goal is and can together WORK towards that goal.
Identify your values and utilize them. Values are CRITICAL for
leaders to not only help themselves, but their ENTIRE TEAM work
together towards their goals.
