I believe values are the most basic, fundamental belief a person can have. They help us determine who we want to be, how we live our lives and how a person prioritizes. Understanding more about values can help you identify what’s most important to you in your career and how they align with your employer.
The values that have helped guide me are:
• Respect – demonstrated by self-respect and respecting others regardless of differences.
• Integrity – having the moral courage and ethical strength to keep promises and fulfill expectations.
• Making a Difference – demonstrated by personal efforts that lead to making a positive impact.
Achiever - I have a great deal of stamina and work hard. I take great satisfaction from being busy and productive.
Futuristic - I am inspired by the future and what it could be. Through the sharing of my visions, I actively inspire others.
Strategic - I am quickly able to create alternative ways to proceed. Faced with any given scenario, I am able to quickly spot the relevant patterns and issues.
