Do you know what your core values are? Or how about this – do you know why you get pushy when someone tries to derail your project? Or does someone that is trying to manipulate you into doing their job make you blow your stack?
Core values are the fundamental beliefs of a person or organization; it’s what makes you tick. These guiding principles dictate behavior and can help people understand the difference between right and wrong. Core values also helpful for companies to determine if they are on the right path and fulfilling their goals by creating an unwavering guide.
So, understanding your own core values may help you understand how you manage, react, contribute, learn, and manage conflict. More importantly, if you understood these about your teammates or employees, it might keep you from blowing a gasket! Or at least managing your frustrations.
So how to know what your core values are – take the CVI Assessment or Core Values Index (CVI™). CoreTech Revolution has partnered with Taylor Protocols to utilize the Core Values Index™ to better address relationship/people management optimization. The CVI takes just 10 minutes to complete and can be found HERE.
You will learn what your tendencies are in a given situation, if your primary core value comes from power, love, knowledge or wisdom. It will help you gain insight as to how your core values affect your behaviors and actions. You will be able to learn and understand your strengths; the areas you excel in or likewise your weaknesses.
“Let’s face it, everyone has their weaknesses, their undermining thoughts, their occasional slips of logic and ineffective behavioral responses that are embarrassing, ineffective, and sometimes destructive to ourselves and others.” Right from the CVI – so true, right? The CVI will also help you understand your vulnerabilities and why you might react in a certain way. How better to know before you make that embarrassing mistake! Knowing ourselves is an invaluable tool. You will also recognize how to capitalize on your strengths or where you might best contribute within your organization.
I know for myself, knowing my tendencies certainly helps. It doesn’t always work for me in a stressful situation but practicing these insights will help you start to adjust your behavior over time. We all want to be better and behave better in difficult situations.
