Reboot Your Life: Name and Claim Your Personal Values

March 22, 2023 at 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT

Start time where you are: Your time zone couldn't be detected


Summary: Goals are important but they can limit us in major ways. That’s why it’s important to know your personal values and make them your own—to make life and work richer and more meaningful.

In this workshop salon, executive coach @jasonshen will lead participants to 1) identify their personal value clusters 2) give them a unique / specific name (with the help of ChatGPT) and 3) affirm those values through a writing prompt + roundtable sharing.

  1. 1/24 – Own Your Story: Developing an empowering self-narrative in times of transition.
  2. 2/14 – Finding Courage: Using fear setting to move towards our deepest desires.
  3. 3/22 – Name and Claim Your Personal Values: Leveraging AI to Articulate Our Unique Way of Living

Details: It’s great to have goals. Launch Project X. Land Deal Y. Win Opportunity Z. But goals can be limiting—because what if you miss them, or decide to change them? They’re off in the distance or behind us. Rarely do we get to savor them.

Values are personally meaningful ways of being. They are atelic—meaning they do not exist to serve some other end, but are ends in themselves. Many of us are familiar with values for our company or organization, but rarely reflect on our own values. Maybe you did a values exercise a few years ago but don’t remember what they are or how to keep them present in your life.

For instance, we are going much deeper than values like “family” or “community” or “health”. Instead we are looking at values from an Action Commitment Therapy (ACT) lens of verbs and adverbs—more like directions than milestones or areas.

In this workshop, we will go through three exercises:

  1. Selecting specific values from an exhaustive list (in a Notion template) – pick any words that are meaningful to you
  2. Clustering and naming those values to create a unique concept – using your intuition and a special ChatGPT prompt, we’ll give each value cluster a name that’s meaningful to you
  3. Affirm those values – we will do a writing exercise where you will reflect on a time in your life where you held true to this value, and share it with the group

As Kelly McGonigal writes in her book The Upside of Stress:

“Writing about your values is one of the most effective psychological interventions ever studied. In the short term, writing about personal values makes people feel more powerful, in control, proud, and strong. It also makes them feel more loving, connected, and empathetic toward others. It increases pain tolerance, enhances self-control, and reduces unhelpful rumination after a stressful experience.

In the long term, writing about values has been shown to boost GPAs, reduce doctor visits, improve mental health, and help with everything from weight loss to quitting smoking and reducing drinking… People who write about their values once, for ten minutes, show benefits months or even years later.”

If this sounds interesting to you, then come join us and let’s share in creating a more values-oriented life together.
