Coaching professional and personal values


This 16 page e-book provides a complete toolkit for coaching both professional and personal values. It will quickly give you a solid grounding in the subject and the simple step by step process can be used when coaching others or for your own self development.


Values play a crucial role in coaching, because they are an attitude or behavior that is deemed important. French psychiatrist Jean Cottraux defines them as solid beliefs that show that some goals in life are preferable to others.


Values can act as the essential rules on which a person can build the guiding principles of their life. They are at the core of our belief system and as such, underpin every decision we make. If our actions are not in harmony with our own personal values, it will create internal conflicts that are difficult to resolve. For this reason, once a person knows what their values are, it’s easier for them to make positive life choices, and it’s why overlooking the importance of values can result in us feeling dissatisfaction, demotivation and possible identity issues.


This e-book clearly explains what values are and then uses a step by step guide to identify 20 values from the list of over 100 and then prioritize and clarify them. Identifying values in this way help with goal setting and any projects that would allow a value to be expressed.


When coaching professional and personal values, it is important they are selected values based on honesty and openness. This is an essential step in order to make sure you are working from a solid base. It is important to stress to the individual or group you are coaching, that their values should be chosen regardless of what anyone (including you) will think of them.
