Values Discovery – Building a Team on Values and Trust

Course Summary

People follow leaders whose values they trust. Attending this half-day workshop will enable delegates to discover their own deepest personal values and to explore how living these values more fully can enable them to become more authentic and effective leaders.


Let’s get right to the bottom line. Living your values at work enables you to get the most out of work and work to get the most out of you. It’s win-win and yet research shows that 75% of employees don’t live their values at work, causing high levels of disengagement which impacts personal, team and organisational performance. Changing this is a leadership opportunity.


  • Five steps which are essential to build a great team
  • Why shared values are of vital importance in building trust in a team and how to discover what they are
  • How your strengths grow from your values
  • Discovering what your deepest personal values are
  • The vital importance of values in leadership
  • Why people are cynical about most organisations’ values
  • Examples of companies who live their values with authenticity and the benefits which they have gained

Course Benefits
