What Are Values Cards?
Values Cards are a self-exploration and development tool. Each card displays a different principle or idea and its definition -- for example, relationships, honesty or wealth.
By sorting and prioritizing which of these values are most important in your life -- and which are not -- you’ll get a better understanding of what motivates you.
Managers: Use these cards to build team alignment and cohesiveness.
Coaches: Help your clients increase their self-knowledge and appreciation for their talents.
Individuals: Get to know yourself, your friends and your family better and strengthen your personal connections.
Explore what is most important to you as you continue to build your talents into strengths with Values Cards.
When you purchase Values Cards, you’ll get a set of 30 cards including instructions for using them.
Each card displays a different value and its definition. To explore what’s most important to you, sort the cards into either core values that you firmly believe in or negotiable values that you are open to discuss or compromise on.
You can also examine how your dominant CliftonStrengths themes influence your core values.
