Session: We starts with Me: living your values to create a brave new world
When hearing about motivation, people often think about behaviors that motivates them. However, research shows that is not behavior that drives us, but values. This is one of the reasons why companies are focusing now on company values. A defined set of values, creates a company culture with a precise set of behaviors. But by doing so, companies don't realise they are creating clones. Creativity and innovation are driven by diversity, not by uniformity. The difference between coherence and alignement is the key here. In this talk we will explore your values, link them to your behavior and see why it is important first to connect to the "me" before thinking about the "we". Being coherent to your values and corporate values is one of the key components in motivation and wellbeing.
I started my career as an oncologist psychologist. I realised that I wanted to help society not only on microlevel, but also on macrolevel. I therefore pursued an MBA at Vlerick Business School. After working in different tech start ups as functional analist and business developer, and seeing how many of my colleagues were unhappy, eventhough they liked the content of their job, I became a freelancer with a clear focus on diversity and motivation.
