Impart your values with these 3 steps

by on
in Best-Practices Leadership,Leaders & Managers

Leaders let other people know what they stand for. In other words, they make their values explicit. Here’s how to develop your values and communicate them with conviction:

1. Verbalize three to five principles that guide your work. Examples:  “Integrity,” “keeping my commitments” and “valuing staff members.”

2. Devise a personal story that illustrates each of those values for you. Example:  “I juggle a lot of balls as I conduct business, but my staff members are the only ‘balls’ I will never drop.” Such imagery makes your values easier to talk about.

3. Draw upon those images when discussing your leadership values in settings that call for you to do so. Examples: at critical meetings, orientations for new employees or long-term planning sessions.
