Choose Among Competing Values
You are a complex human being with competing values and commitments that vie for your time and attention every day. Consider the push and pull between efficiency and inclusiveness or the notion of being liked and having to make the tough decisions based on hard realities. If you want to make progress on your adaptive challenges, you must choose among your own competing values. Take time to reflect on your priority values so you can assess risk and mitigate against potential losses in order to choose one value over the other.
Questions to Ask Yourself
- What competing values are at play in your situation/case? They may be your own or others.
- What has held you back from intervening in the past?
- What risks have you been unwilling to take? Why?
- What would a big risk look like?
