At GRAVA’s September Workshop, we focused on Valuing Your Value. Ann Deaton of Bounce, a local leadership development organization committed to empowering positive impact, lead the workshop on navigating your personal and professional values. Ann stressed that each day we may touch decisions and choices based on our own values, the values of our organizations as well as the values and ethical code of our profession.
She described ethics as your values in action — therefore behaving ethically requires, “us to make decisions based on right versus right choices. Often there is no ‘correct’ answer. Instead we must weight both sides of the question and make a decision based on a core value or belief.” She provided GRAVA members with a robust Values Inventory and walked them through a process for determining our core values.
Be sure to attend GRAVA’s October 2nd Roundtable where we’ll dive even deeper into values through peer-to-peer learning activities. RSVP now!
