Thanks for taking the Values Generator exercise! I hope it sheds light on your top values and yourprimary motivators. As you can see in your Values DNA
Report below, if “
I was your boss
”, Icould significantly increase my level of personal leadership effectiveness with you if I used theinformation below wisely. This information could help me see things about you like:
In Step 1 chart below
I could study what you
“DO NOT Value Most”
and make sure not to emphasize those things as being valuable to you in our dialogues and in task setting.
In group settings, if I am using these values listed in your
“DO NOT Value Most”
section to motivate someone else,I can say that “not everybody sees things this way” to reflect my understanding of your position.
In Top 6, Top 3, and Top 2 pictured below
I can study your Top 6, 3 & 2 (and their corresponding modifiers) to develop language that I use with you tomotivate you and in task setting for you.
I can ask you to mentally map your Top 6 values to your specific job, then to our team’s role, then to thedepartment’s overall mission or objective, then to the organization’s objectives. This allows you to anchor yourpersonal motivators to something outside of your own desires. It can help you see where you personally fit as ateam player and as an organizational citizen. (And, if you personally created these mental roadmaps to success,then you will more readily believe in the importance of your role in the larger mission. This is much more effectivethat having organizational values forced upon you.)
I can make sure that I try not to ask you to violate these Top Values.
If you must do a task that would have you temporarily compromise one or more of your values, then I can uselanguage that allows you to see that I understand where you are coming from, but that I need your help in doingsomething for the greater good.
I can continue to model this type of values-based behaviors to you to continually build greater trust andcommitment in our relationship.
I can tailor incentive programs based on what you really care about. (This works better that incenting you with thelatest gimmick from some committee.)
I can see and evaluate your decision making in what is most important to you by seeing what you sacrificed ingoing through each step.
I can see if the modifying words changed through the step sequence to help build a complete mental picture of who you are on the inside.
I can acknowledge your priorities to you in conversations and in task setting.
I can honor your stated values and how you decided upon them, even if they differ from my own.
Your personal, team, departmental, and organizational conflicts can be settled or understood better with your baseline motivators established, known, and considered. This foundational information is the tool that I wouldneed when conflict occurs to help bridge gaps in understanding with others.
Your cooperation level in resolving conflicts will increase if you know that I am looking out for your best interests.
I can feel confident in supporting you because I have an authentic starting point.
I would not have to avoid conflicts or avoid helping solve conflicts because I can feel empowered with accuratesupporting information on you.
I can mentor you most effectively through both positive and negative situations.
I can apply what I learn with interacting with you to help in leading myself and the rest of the team throughuncomfortable work and life balance situations.I hope you enjoyed the Values Generator™ experience. Remember to
print and post your Top 6 Values
so that you can lead by example and convey to the world how best to interact with you!
