2. Assess the importance of each value in your organization. Provide examples to demonstrate your assertions.
B. Choose what you think are the three most important in order, and justify your decisions.
– My personal values will have to be respecting others, education, and helping and caring for others. The person(s) who I feel influenced me the most in forming my values is my parents and my grandmother. They influenced me because growing up they always preach about treating others with respect even if I feel like they don’t deserved it. They also made sure that education was a priority and not an option. For as helping and caring for others I always saw them helping when they didn’t necessary didn’t have too and not one complain or threw it in the person face. The value that lead me into social work is helping and caring for others wanting to see them do better and make better decision in life.
3. As you think about the decisions you made in this unit, which ones seem most important?
Having many values in my life, the assessment found three that stood out to me. Favorably, I am accustomed to helping others. If I see someone struggling with tasks or comprehension, I always try to help them understand. I can remember when I was a toddler how creative I was. I would often fill my days with telling my family stories and making up songs that my imagination couldn’t hold on to. Being 21 now, creativity has still been a major key factor in success. Thinking of ways to improve computer programs at work is part of the creativity. Being stable is the most important to me. Being without a job, a car, and money, are all key factors that could possibly hold me back from not having a successful career.
My most and least important selections show that anything that relates to family and health is very important to me. I feel that family comes first. I would want their health over my pleasure and enjoyment. I also feel that honesty and responsibility are very important and being neat and tidy and having self control are on my lower end. I feel that if someone is honest and responsible I can trust them. I find trust very important in people. I feel that these show that I want to better others before I choose something that is pleasurable of myself. Trusting people will improve my management style because the more trust I have in a person the better a relationship is. Personally putting others first show that becoming a Physical Therapist will be beneficial. I will be able to work with others and be able to help others when they are not able to help themselves. My results for the Rokeach Value Survey show that I should be a caretaker. I have always been a person that takes care of others. I put others first a good majority of the time. I think becoming a Physical Therapist or a Nurse would be best for me. I would also be able to find pleasure in this job because I have the satisfaction of helping others. On the side I would also enjoy working/owning a gym.These will turn into major assets when it comes to putting the patient first. The patient wants the best care possible and by putting others before me I can accomplish that. I also feel that being honest and responsible are good strengths to have when treating patients. When working with clients at the gym they want the best coaching style as well. Helping with form and teaching them how to take care of themselves will be a major strength. My locus of control shows that I have a moderate internal locus of control. I agree with this 100%. I feel like my actions will later affect me in my
Honesty, Love, and Dedication. These three values are, what I like to believe, the core of my very being, the epitome of what I seek to become in life, and the three major moral virtues I seek in my relationships with others. Honesty - named first as its importance to me is primary - generates a safe, secure environment that allows for trust, friendship, and genuine understanding. It also serves as the basis for all other values and relationships due to its vigilant stability and moral foundation. Love is the second most important value I hold to my heart. Without it, I don't think any human could find their way in life. It is through the love of others, as well as the love we show ourselves, that has the ability to save us from our struggles,
An important value of mine is candor. I do not always voice my opinions, but when I do, I tend to be very straightforward and frank. Beating around the bush and sugar-coating things is not in my nature. However, this does not mean I am always honest. I am not, but I do value candor very much. I believe I get this from my mom and grandfather as both of them are the same way. I also value harmony. I love it when people cooperate and get along and when things work out . I will definitely refrain from voicing my opinions if I think my opinions will create discord between someone else and myself, just to keep the peace. Another important value that I hold is beauty. I believe very strongly in looking your best and dressing to impress. In addition,
Consider your schedule, are you putting forth effort time and energy in your top three values. Is it sufficient to allow you to achieve the level of success you want in each area? Please provide concrete examples describing what you do to succeed in these areas.
The values I hold most importantly in my life would be the ability to be resilient, resourceful, approachable, discrete, and reverent. Putting all these values into action are what has helped me to carry on with my life and stand as how I stand today.
The values I have previously identified include family and friends, knowledge and success, which guide my daily life and decision-making. The goals I have set rely on the support of my family and friends, which allow me to become more self-aware and monitor the progress of the goals I am working towards. Knowledge is incorporated into the goals because I am continually learning how to better myself as a leader and a person. Learning stress management techniques, thinking outside of the box when faced with problems, and being more decisive are all directly linked to my passion for continual learning and development. Through pursuing these goals, I hope to become a better leader. This will give me a
Upon reflection, I believe that my primary key value is integrity. I value integrity over all other values and beliefs. To me, integrity is the root or base upon which our character is built. Without integrity, our foundation has no substance and our other values are without merit. Another set of values that is important to me is competence and knowledge. The ability to accomplish a task to the best of my capabilities is fundamental to my sense of perfectionism. While, "no one is perfect", may be true, I believe it is important to strive toward that goal. If we set our standards at less than 100%, we will achieve less than 100%. Second, knowledge is a critical component in achieving competence. I believe learning should be a life-long objective. The information and skills that come from learning add to your experience and provide you with the means to achieve your goals. These three values, integrity, competence, and knowledge form the basis of my belief system.
2-consistency: I was consistent and firm about my will to work hard and commit in learning and handling all what I have to.
I would say that one of my strongest values is my belief in myself and the belief that anyone can accomplish their goals with the right amount of persistence, hard work, and effort. Graduating from college with an undergraduate degree was something I had strongly wanted to accomplish, but was something that took more effort, persistence and hard work than it did for many of my peers. Being at a disadvantage, lacking both financial and familial support, compared to my peers has been an obstacle that I have had to overcome time and time again. I believe that underlining belief that I can accomplish anything I do with hard, effort, and persistence has helped develop me into someone who does not back down from a challenge. It has made me a more resilient and strong person in all aspects of my life.
While taking this assessment, there were a lot of values listed that I value, but since the assessment only asked to select three, it made me think about what are my top three values. After doing the process of elimination of which values that are not as important to me and analyzing my
