The Personal Values Project

Tuesday, 1 February 2011

The UWA Business School
We may not be consciously aware of it, but every one of us has a set of core values that guide our thoughts and actions. These values may serve our own goals, such as enjoying life, being creative and being personally successful, or may serve the goals of our groups, such as being loyal and trustworthy and caring for our environment. No matter what our values are, we express them in what we think, what we do and what we think about others.
