Over the last six months, I’ve been gathering insights into my own unique personality and personal values, the things that light my fire and drag me down. One of the most recent “Aha!” moments for me, involved looking at my personal values and our Organisational Values and then digging a bit deeper in order to understand the ‘behaviours’ of these values.
