Wherever you might be on your life journey, you will for sure change in the years to come. "Understand Your Core Values" is a personal leadership workshop meant to help you become more empowered and confident in your personal decision making process.
Nobody wants to get stuck in the same place for the rest of her life. I am sure that if you just look back at the last five years, you will identify a few things that completely changed who you are today. New life events, new people, new projects, new perspectives.
Change is inevitable, but it's not always aligned with who we truly are and who we want to become, unless we take the time to reflect and work with ourselves. We sometimes take decisions that feel good on the short term but they will make us feel meaningless and empty hearted on the long run.
Taking the time to reflect on what is really important to us is not an easy exercise, but it's a necessary step in designing and creating the fulfilled life we want for ourselves. A life where we feel in the driver seat, where we are the director, and not just a random actor in a supporting role.
One way of understanding what makes us happy and more aligned to the best version of ourselves, is discovering our core values. Values are one’s judgements of what is important in life. They can change depending on the life stage we’re in, but not radically. They are linked to who we are as personality, motivations, and shaped beliefs. Values are influenced by the culture we grew up in, by our family and environment. They are subjective and personal.
Values are like the North Star, helping us find direction when we’re lost and providing a safety net for when we need to take decisions fast and do the right thing without thinking too hard.
