Values Edge System



The Values Edge System


There’s value in better team performance.
Values. Every person, team, and organization has them. They’re what make people tick, and smart organizations know that they’re the vital link to employee engagement, team performance, and a competitive advantage.
New from HRDQ, The Values Edge System is a powerful new training tool that quickly brings values to the surface. By putting personal and team values on the table—literally—individuals can “see” what drives their actions and view a snapshot of how they compare to their peers, teams, and the organization as a whole.Find at Click here to visit HRDQ

Here’s what the system will do for your organization


An Exercise in Personal and Team Discovery Authors: Dr. Cynthia Scott, PhD, MPH and Dr. Dennis Jaffe, PhD
Understanding the business value of values. Exploring personal values is more than inner discovery and understanding what makes people tick. In a world that’s in a constant state of flux, values are what remain steadfast and true. They’re the driving force behind personal action and a beacon of focus in turbulent times. Successful organizations recognize the business case for value clarity, and they know that connecting personal values to organizational strategy is the vital link to employee engagement, commitment, a healthy culture—and a competitive advantage.

How It Works Personal and team discovery sessions simply and effectively bring values to the surface. Participants create a hierarchy of their individual value system using pyramid tents, stickers, and cards that represent both intrinsic and instrumental values. What makes these exercises so powerful is that in addition to “seeing” what drives their own actions, individuals get a clear picture of how their values compare to their peers, teams—and even the organization as a whole.

What to Order The Complete Kit includes materials to train up to five people at one time. For larger groups, order one extra card deck and one participant refill set per person. The card decks are reusable and all other parts are available for individual purchase.
