Establishing Your Values

23 Apr

Values are pretty important in schools and thing we as educators have, or should have as educators. In Catholic schools we do this well: “don’t steal” or “treat others the way you want to be treated.” Our values are who we are, at our core, right here, right now. They guide us. In my own in environment gospel values and the values of Manawa Mission (PB4L) does this for our community.

I have learned that leaders benefit from identifying and clarifying their values because—consciously or unconsciously—they serve as a motivating force, both professionally and personally. We’ve also learned that if leaders are willing to bravely share their values with their team, it not only allows people to better understand what makes the leader tick, but also bonds the whole group closer together.

How might you identify and clarify your own values? Experience has done this for me. An internet search will uncover various lists of identified values. I do an exercise like this with my students every year but the real challenge come when they are put to the test.
