How to Use These Personal Values Coaching Cards
These Personal Values Coaching Cards are easy to use. Here are 10 steps:
- 1. Book a meeting room for you and your coachee/team.
- 2. At the start of the session explain to everyone that:
- This is an exercise to look at Personal Values, consider how they show up in their life, what’s important to each person and explore any changes they may want to make to help them reach their goals.
- Everyone should act with respect, courtesy, confidentiality and an open mind.
- 3. Read out the “What are Values?” card to give context to the exercise.
- 4. Ask the coachee/team to sort through the cards and choose the TEN values that they feel
- 5. Let them take as long as they need to sort the cards (It’s usually around 10-15 minutes).
After the Exercise
- 6. Looking at your top 10 value cards:
- Which of those values is non-negotiable and you could not live without?
- What is is about that value that is important to you?
- When has it been present (what did that feel like?).
- When has it been compromised (and what did that feel like?)
- Place this card in position number 1.
- 7. Looking at your top 10, which card could you live without for a little while? (a day, week or month) Place this card in position number 10.
- 8. Pick up 2 of the remaining cards and hold one each in the palm of your upturned hand. Close your eyes and “weigh” which feels more valuable to you. (It may feel lighter or heaver). Which ever is heavier, place this ahead of the other one. You can do this with all the cards to sort them if you like.
- 9. Think of a goal that you want to achieve. Which of your top 10 values do you need to focus on to achieve your goal?
- 10. Get some feedback on what the coachee has learned about themselves during this exercise, and what actions, if any, they want to take next.
