The power of value-based leadership and decision making

Wednesday, June 1, 2016: 10:00 AM-11:30 AM
Forum Suite (Hilton Portland)
Organizations with shared values achieve impressive outcomes versus those that do not. Values speak to the passion organizations, teams, and individuals have for the work of helping others and their communities. More than just a feel good activity, well-positioned values increase motivation and the effectiveness of decision making. In this workshop, we will present the research around shared values, the power of values for individuals and teams, the leader's role in positioning values, and an experiential exercise for values creation. Two leaders in the HCH community will turn this research into reality. Speakers will tell explain how they injected value-based leadership into the DNA of their organizations and the impacts and specifics of these efforts. Values are an incredibly powerful motivator that leaders too often ignore. After attending this workshop, participants will walk away with not only the understanding of shared values but ideas for integration.
