Whole-Hearted Interpersonal Practices: Bringing Our Values to Work

Whether we are conscious of them or not, our values are made manifest in our evaluation work. When we live and work out of alignment with our values we may do harm to our self and others. One path to resolving this conflict is to bring a sense of clarity and purpose to our own values. Through an intentional practice of identifying the values we hold most dear we can begin to identify where we are in or out of alignment. In this one-hour workshop we will explore the power of intention setting through identifying our values. 

What to expect:

  • Understanding intention setting as one of the Whole-Hearted Interpersonal Practices

  • A practice for clarifying and operationalizing our values

  • Small group discussion on bringing our values to work
