The Values of “Insightfully Aware” Leaders

The Values of “Insightfully Aware” Leaders | Organ Donation & Transplant Matters Resources | Scoop.it

 

Values are the principles and standards that motivate us in life. They are our basic convictions; our belief that tells us what is right, good, or appropriate for a particular situation.

This well written piece expands on the importance of having values and why the values that are espoused by the leaders within an organization are extremely important.
