Personal values are the beliefs that people hold as most important to the way they live and work. They are a central part of who a person is and who they want to become. They are fairly stable but can change as a person moves through life’s stages. A person’s values should determine their priorities and are often used to evaluate if the person feels they are living well or not.
When things are aligned with one’s personal values, things seem good. But when things aren’t aligned, things can seem wrong. Research shows that alignment between one’s personal values and one’s organizational values is key to feeling engaged and energized at work. This is called person-organization fit.
This is a profile report that measures an individual’s personal values and the degree in which they are held, the impact that has on their motivation, and ultimately their success and fit in an organization.
The Personal Values Profile™ helps individuals identify which values are most important to them through a selection process. These beliefs form part of a complete picture of an individual and what drives there behaviors and happiness in their work. Two other tools, the 5 STeP™ and the Pressure Point™, round out this picture describing the basic personality and potential blind spots a person may carry with them into their work. The reports are derived from a different survey but can be purchased at a favorable price as a leadership development package.
The 5 STeP™ describes an individual’s personality to help them identify their default behaviors. It’s often paired with the Personal Values Profile to understand motivations behind some of a person’s behaviors.
The PPP™ describes how an individual’s strengths can turn into obstacles when under pressure. It’s often paired with the Personal Values Profile to understand motivations behind some of a person’s behaviors.
