11:00 am to 11:15 am – Welcome to FELP Meet and Greet
11:15 am – Barrett Values Exercise: Identify core values and understand how to utilize them as you lead and manage.
Values reflect your deepest aspirations, they inform your perceptions about what is important and they are fundamental determinants of the decisions you make every day.
As a leader, when you understand your own values, you are able to remain aligned and purposeful in your actions, you can use them in service of how you lead others and you can activate them to support the realization of your organizational objectives.
Richard Barrett, of the Barrett Values Center has been researching and working with values for over 25 years. His model highlights that when we connect with and access our values consciously, they become a source of motivation, strengthening our resolve and grounding us.
This 2-hour workshop will introduce you to the Barrett Model™, your Personal Values Assessment (PVA) report and what it means to you going forward. By participating in this session, you will;
- Activate your personal values in service of work-based decisions and behaviours,
