As an executive health and wellness coach whose methodology includes identifying and understanding one’s core values, strengths and purpose, I thought why not write about the subject of values. The idea of honoring and trusting one’s values and using them as a personal rudder, steering oneself in the right direction day in and day out is not a new fundamental of leadership; however, like any good fundamental, successful people go back to them during times of imbalance. Many of the techniques and exercises below are as a result of my training with Adler Learning International.
Today is Part II of a 3 part series on How to Create Your Own Powerful List of Values that are meaningful to you, and only you. We will look at adding to your current list of values you created in Part I by working with a Values List.
In this TED Talk entitled “Will Our Kids Be a Different Species?” Juan Enriquez creates awareness around the idea that our brains may be evolving more rapidly than in any other time in our evolution; this may be due to the fact that we are trying to take-in as much data in a day than people used to take-in during a lifetime. Can this explain the source of some of our stress?
