Values in my opinion should determine your priorities, and they’re probably the measures, you use to tell if your life is turning out the way you want it to.
Knowing your own values can help you make decisions about how to live your life.
They also recognize the importance of ethical behavior.
The best leaders exhibit both their core values and their ethics in their leadership style and actions.
Understanding and living my core values will open the door to more inspiration in my life.
Finally living up to my core values allows me, to get more of the right things done and enjoy the journey more."Within the organizations, in which I have had the opportunity to serve, the core values were communicated by actions mostly—in the ways in which business is conducted on a day-to-day basis, and not so much in words directly spoken or written."I am a strong advocate of demonstrated values more than written or spoken—actions speak louder.But, I also believe that written values that reinforce and support specific actions, and specific actions that reinforce and support written values, make a powerful combination.Their power far exceeds the power of one or the other by itself.Your leadership ethics and values should be visible because you live them in your actions every single day. If leaders never identified their values in these workplaces, the mistrust is understandable. If leaders have identified and shared their values, living the values daily—visibly will create trust.To say one sentiment and to do another will damage trust—possibly forever. Tway calls trust a construct because it is constructed of these three components: “the capacity for trusting, the perception of competence, and the perception of intentions.” Workplace ethics take the same route.My core values include family, health, knowledge, happiness, friendship, loyalty, trust, hard work, honesty, and learning. Merriam-Webster defines the word family as, "a group of people who are related to each other”.However, to me personally, I feel that family is way more than just your relatives.Family has been a huge influence in why I’m in college today and has taught me right from wrong.Family is so important to me because they thought me how to build relationships with other people, how to love, how to get, always have my back no matter what, and know me the so well.
