Where the Values Meet the Tarmac

Where the Values Meet the Tarmac | Values Based Leadership | Scoop.it

Bean told me something that I took to heart: " If your top priority (value) is in the top 10 of the organization you are working in, stay with it. If not, time for a change."  


Via Dennis T OConnor
Annette Schmeling's insight:

Powerful testimony about value congruency and a journey well traveled. Dennis hits it right we he states "If you find congruency, stay put. If not; change the culture of your workplace, or change your work place." Sage advice. 

 

Knowing your core values, and having the skill to assess the practiced values in your work environment, will result in a more significant and possitive difference in work attitudens and performance.

 

Thanks for your openness and honesty Dennis!

Annette Schmeling's insight:

'Happiness' itself is not a core value at Zappos, but the organizational alignment with core values is so powerful that you cannot miss the end result. Zappos core values center on customer service and connect the employees as human beings. The values are timeless and do not change - the practices and strategies of business should change all of the time.

Daily Show: Jimmy Carter Pt. 1

Daily Show: Jimmy Carter Pt. 1 | Values Based Leadership | Scoop.it
Jimmy Carter stakes his claim as the world's greatest latrine builder.
Annette Schmeling's insight:

Making a difference! Former President Jimmy Carter has led the global struggle to eradicate Guinea worm worldwide. When he started 24 years ago, there were 3.5 million cases annually in 20 countries. Last year there were 542 cases. Carter's plan to eradicate the Guinea worm worldwide is succeeding, in part, because he treats the dissenting voice of local villagers with respect and actively engages the community in the effort. 

 

Carter's commitment to truth, justice, peace, freedom, humility, human rights, generosity and respect demonstrate the power of Values Based Leadership.

donhornsby's curator insight, February 3, 2013 6:13 AM

(From the article): Leadership rests on the foundation of rituals, and it is ritual which binds us together, honors our higher intentions, and acknowledges our journey. Your personal rituals -- what you make time for, and what you do not -- become the leadership rituals that define your influence, your style and your legacy. When you decide to have a clean desk, an empty inbox, run every morning, eat more vegetables, you are articulating your values and setting the example for people who work with you. You are creating a set of rituals that give you energy, exert your influence, and shift the way you are perceived.

What Being an "Authentic Leader" Really Means

What Being an "Authentic Leader" Really Means | Values Based Leadership | Scoop.it
It doesn't mean "just do whatever you want, as soon as it occurs to you."
Annette Schmeling's insight:

Each of us is being called to lead by authentically connecting to our own life experiences, values, and talents to the special circumstances that we face.

Authenticity is the continual process of building self-awareness of our whole person. Oversensitivity, indecisiveness, self-consciousness, lack of self-trust, inability to succeed in relationships, lack of confidence regardless of our accopmplishments and a general sense of insecurity limits our capacity to be honest and truthful.

Without this knowledge you won’t know what really matters to you, what motivates you and why you are doing what you are doing. You’ll be in conflict with what you really want and your life will be unfulfilling and stressful.

Dobri Dobrev is a man who lost his hearing in WWII and walks 10 kilometers from his village in his homemade clothes and leather shoes to the city of Sofia, where he spends the day begging for money.

 

Though a well-recognized fixture around several of the city’s chuches, known for his prostrations of thanks to all donors, it was only recently discovered that he has donated every penny he has collected — over 40,000 euros — towards the restoration of decaying Bulgarian monasteries and churches and the utility bills of orphanages, living entirely off his monthly state pension of 80 euros and the kindness of others.

Annette Schmeling's curator insight, March 4, 2013 8:29 AM

Contemplative Dialogue is a way of being that asks that we take a long and loving look at the real. Chris Argyris, Peter Senge, et.al., have given us the Ladder of Inference, and other tools, to be awake and aware and to picture the dignity and worth of each person. Our growth is gauged entirely by our capacity to love and be loved.

As Susan states in this article, "Relationships are built based on respect, growth, cooperation and communication." She also highlights the value of compassion and truth. The emotional connection, and our willingness to be present to the whole person, affirms the sacred worth and value of each and every person.

Core value: Happiness. One of the important factor is choosing to work for a company that is "built to last." Look for: 1) high performance standards, 2) a caring attitude about people, and 3) a sense of uniqueness and pride (O'Reilly & Phiffer).

Via the Change Samurai, David Hain
Annette Schmeling's insight:

Leaders set an example for all constituents based on a shared understanding of what is expected. Constituents respond to leader expectations and leaders respond to the constituent expectations. They must be able to build and affirm a community of shared values together And model desired behaviors. Values must be more than an advertising slogan or espoused as an ideal. They must be deeply supported, broadly endorsed and put into practice. Shared values do make a difference in work attitudes and performance. 

more...
the Change Samurai's curator insight, January 24, 2013 11:52 PM

The enduring mind-body split continues to dominate the way our work systems are structured.  Leaders still model power politics. Trust is at an all time low.  Bully behavior is tolerated. Long, arduous work days are the norm. Tasks and projects operate in a permanent crisis modality. Many organizational leaders still do not understand (or care) that the atrophied systems, with their centuries – old legacy of people as commodities and assets, will never produce relationships that flourish, despite spiffy new buzzwords.
