Please answer all questions as best you can. This profile will be used by your coach and mentor to obtain a broad picture of your needs and ambitions.
Values are basic and fundamental beliefs that guide or motivate attitudes or actions. They help us to determine what is important to us. Values describe the personal qualities we choose to embody to guide our actions; the sort of person we want to be; the manner in which we treat ourselves and others, and our interaction with the world around us. They provide the general guidelines for conduct.Values are usually fairly stable, yet they don't have strict limits or boundaries. Also, as you move through life, your values may change. For example, when you start your career, success – measured by money and status – might be a top priority. But after you have a family, work-life balance may be what you value more.
As your definition of success changes, so do your personal values. This is why keeping in touch with your values is a lifelong exercise. You should continuously revisit this, especially if you start to feel unbalanced... and you can't quite figure out why.
As you go through the exercise below, bear in mind that values that were important in the past may not be relevant now.
Look at the items below. For each, select a number (1 to 5) that represents your satisfaction. 1 is very dissatisfied and 5 is fully satisfied.
IMPORTANT: As best you can, use the FIRST number (score) that pops into your head, not the number you think it should be.
