What are Leadership Values?
Leadership values are the core values of life. Values are defined as a person’s principles or standards of behavior.
How do personal values apply to leadership?
One’s judgment of what is important in life provides the foundation of ethical behavior on a personal level as well as in business. Values translate into establishing the standards of ethical behavior and building trust. Demonstrating values with visible actions sets the tone for others to follow.
Lead by example by being positive, kind, truthful, resourceful, and by being a good listener. Leaders that exhibit the highest ethical behavior are powerful influencers on the actions of others.
Value also means the worth or usefulness of something or somebody. What effort does it take to provide true value?
Work every day to make a positive difference. Actions always speak louder than words. What can you do to provide a benefit or advantage to someone else? A client? A colleague? An employee? A neighbor?
How do you see giving and receiving value?
Make a commitment to meaningful work. Deliver value every day. Set the intention to discover ways to share your spirit and give value to others. When you follow this path, concentrating on the giving of value, value will come to you. Remember to always be thankful.
Earn the respect and trust of others by living your value (worth) and your values (principles) every day – in both your personal and professional life.
