Individuals on a daily basis deal with personal, organizational and cultural values. It is important that an individual learns to understand the differences between each and how it pertains to them. The intent of this paper is to identify values that are important personally, organizationally, and culturally, and the effects that these values have on decision making in regards to our personal and professional life. Personal Values
My own personal values have been influenced by personal upbringing at home, my formation and interaction at church, as well as school, my relationships with colleagues at the workplace, and not the least the genetic makeup inherited from my parents. Personal values are what defines and guides individuals’ daily activities as well as their thoughts, determining how they will face the world or even relate with other individuals, through their personal conduct: Are they honest? Are they trustworthy?
Are they reliable? Do they have a good attitude? What are their beliefs? How do they interact with others? What is their involvement in a career? Every individual may have different personal value that they believe in. Ones who values social status will spend more time with the community.
Ones who values their family will spend more time at with their family. In many cases these values can lead to conflict, such as an individual who needs to build up their business but also feels the need to be with family.
