“Values are like fingerprints. Nobody’s are the same, but you leave ‘em all over everything you do.” – Elvis Presley

Values are deeply held beliefs that determine what is “good, right, and normal” and what is “bad, wrong, and abnormal” among members of a cultural group. Values prescribe which ways of acting and being are perceived by a cultural [ethnic, gender, age, religious, political, organization, team, etc.] group as “better” than others. Because of this, values vary widely among different groups, especially in the workplace, and are often the root cause of misunderstandings and conflict.

Goals and Outcomes:
• We will examine the importance of understanding our own personal and work values and that may be the root cause of when things go sideways on teams and in interpersonal relationships.
• We will contrast the major racial groups in the U.S.A. and their traditional cultural values (African, Asian, Latino and European cultures).
• Each person will walk away with a better understanding of his/her own work and personal values and how they show up in workplace interactions.
