Six Steps to determine your Personal Values





Step 1:

Review the list of examples of core values below and write down every value that resonates with you. Add any you think of that are not on the list as well. Select the values that most accurately describe your feelings or behaviours.


Step 2: Consider the people you most admire

Values are typically personified in people whom we admire and love. Generally, when we admire a quality in others it’s because it’s something we value ourselves. Write down six people you admire, who are role models or valued connections for you.

For example, you could include a colleague because of their perseverance and dedication. You could include a family member because of their empathy. Try to include people you consider heroes as well. For example, you may admire Nelson Mandela because of his kindness to others and his commitment to fighting for social justice. Note the values that these six people embody.
