Core values

It’s good to know what you value or think important, but to value art for example, is an opinion that can vary and may change. Core values are qualities that are universally accepted and unchanging. Many are based on respect and responsibility for ourselves and for others.


Find examples of values at the websites below, and select those that are most important to you.

Find examples of values in action. Look at how others have demonstrated values in their lives. How has the quality been illustrated in biographies, books, movies and quotations?

Find ways to apply what you have discovered. Plan to develop the personal qualities that you have chosen.

Brand and Purpose Toolkit at Resources

I seek to create order from the chaos of complex information. Join me at the Daily PlanIt to gain insights, inspiration, and information to increase skills for a better life. I unlock the power of teaching reading with phonics in the pursuit of literacy at www.phonicspow.com. In my spare time I explore books and movies, often choosing titles available on both screen and page.
