A values-based leader is willing to look within oneself through regular self-reflection and strive for greater self-awareness.
A values-based leader has the ability to see situations from multiple perspectives and differing viewpoints. They are keen to gain a much fuller understanding and a deeper more substantial perspective - considering all perspectives and opinions with an open mind.
Values-based leaders pursue genuine self-confidence and self-acceptance - recognising strengths and weaknesses and striving for continuous self-improvement. A truly self-confident person knows and accepts that there will always be people who are more gifted, accomplished and successful - and that’s OK, because you are OK with you.
Values-based leaders display genuine humility. They never forget who they are or where they come from. Genuine humility keeps life in perspective, particularly important as you experience increasing personal and professional success. It helps you value each person you encounter and treat everyone with respect.
Your leadership must be rooted in who you are and what matters most to you. When you truly know yourself and what you stand for, it is much easier to know what to do in any situation. Your core values are what set you apart from all others in your arena, and are what you will be measured by when the world scrutinises your integrity and your effectiveness as a leader and person.
Your organisation or setting will directly feed from those values and it is important that every single stakeholder is clear on the values that will drive every decision that they make – knowing that it cannot be wrong if it stands the ‘values test’.
