What are values?

Values are those ideas and qualities that are important to you. Believe it or not, your values motivate you and are behind your decisions.

Each of us has our own priorities, motivated by our personal values.

Entire cultures and communities have some degree of understood, shared values.

A business, educational institution, church, or other organization has its established values.

Families have values each member is taught and expected to live.

With so many priorities all rooted in values from individuals, groups, and communities, it’s critical to identify your own values to fully understand what drives or motivates you. Knowing your values helps you find meaning in your life and work. Your values can also be consciously used to make decisions that bring satisfaction and fulfillment.

Understanding your values brings clarity. And, once you see clearly what motivates you, you are able to life your values fully and apply your strengths to work, personal, and other situations as well. This process increases your sense of well-being and brings joy to life.

"Bethanie is an amazing coach. She is so present that she knows exactly how and when to ask powerful questions that make me pause, consider and realize that there is a way out of any situation I'm facing. I can see a significant shift in my mindset and look forward to every session we have."

-- Lois, Life Coach

"I've been having regular coaching sessions with Bethanie among others. The insights I've discovered and gained during the coaching sessions with Bethanie have been colossal. I find myself inspired after being coached by her. Thank you, Bethanie!"

-- Dariush, Executive Coach

"Bethanie is a sincere, kind, and positive woman.  She is a great listener with a wealth of insights and resources.  I always leave our sessions feeling more hopeful and clear about what the next steps are on my journey.  She is inspirational as a person and a coach." 

-- David, Professor

"Because of the coaching experience, I've  taken time to reflect on what's important to me, especially in my professional work. And, I'm finally considering potential future roles I'd like to prepare for that suit me even better. Coaching has also reinvigorated and energized me by creating time and space to be mindful. For example, now I'm planning time every day to transition from work to personal life so I can enjoy my evenings much more. Thanks Bethanie!"

--Don L., mid-level manager
