It will help you to turn around relationships, and it will put you in a position where other people will perceive you as a leader, it will help you to solve problems. This process works. I've used it in my personal life and I've used it in my professional life. It helps us to gain the courage to go into difficult conversations in the first place and it helps us to make them a lot better. Just learning a little bit about this process, and applying a little bit goes a long way.

Living Into Our Values
Clarity of values helps us shape our decisions in a way that gives us the life that we want. 1. Being clear about our values gets us going. It gives us a reason to be courageous in the first place, give us motivation and energy to do something. 2. Getting specific about how to live our values keeps us going. Make pre-decisions that work for you, that keep you in line with what you stand for. Even when you're tired, exhausted and prone to distraction. 3. Our values help us make the tough choices. When it's dark, you're face to face with fear, when it feels like you're a ship on a rough ocean on a dark night, your values serve as a lighthouse that gives you strength and guides your way. 4. Practicing our values makes us stronger. Living into our values is like a pushup. Every time we do it, we get stronger.
