# Each of us has a set of values – stated / unstated ; in conscious awareness / subliminal , which act as anchors to our behaviours , it has to do with our sense of what is right / wrong , what is / is not good .
# Our values guide our behavior . Whatever we do , each of us has a sense , deep within , of whether we what did was ‘ right ‘ or ‘ wrong ‘ regardless of the ‘ face ‘ we put up for the world . If what we do is right / aligned with our values & belief system , there is a kind of an equilibrium in our mind , which makes us feel comfortable or happy . If we don’t reach this equilibrium , deep inside we feel unhappy & continue to struggle till we reach that equilibrium .
# It’s hence important for us to know what our values are & seek greater alignment in our behavior , so that we don’t carry a burden on our chest of too many ‘ non- equilibrium ‘ situations
# Knowing & aligning behaviours with our values not only helps a balanced , peaceful mind for seeking & imparting greater insights for the client , but also affords clarity on our path to guide others we coach .
# For organisations system of Values , Culture by guiding employee behaviour , act as a systemic check . To me Values & Culture make for a better , non-stifling control mechanisms for evolved organisations , compared to conventional control mechanisms . Conventional control mechanisms are more tactical / transactional , can’t be comprehensive , are punitive & have more ‘ physical element ‘ to it … in the sense they tend to control more our bodies than our minds … certainly not souls . Controls through culture work more on mind / psyche , are systemic , comprehensive , more proactive & hence are more sustainable ,
