Self-Leadership and Values

written byTania Walter Gardineron 10/12/2012

To effectively lead yourself, you need to be clear on who you are and what your core values are.

Begin with a question: "What matters to you?"  

Your values are your filter to identify and choose what fits for you in business and life. If you were to identify your top three to five core values, what would they be?  

Values connect you to your authentic self. They reveal who you are and what you stand for. Self-leadership begins from a place of connectedness with your authentic self. If you were truly aligned with your decisions from the inside out, what would that mean for you? What would be the ripple effect on others?  

When you act in alignment with conscious self-leadership and values, you achieve the outcomes you want with ease, a calm centeredness, and resourcefulness. When you have this deep awareness of who you are, you can readily act in your own best interest while respecting others.  

How clear are you about who you are?  Being crystal clear on who you are, having a values-based vision aligned with a strategic action plan is essential to your definition of success in business and life.
