What values are you looking for?

Writing about web page #LeadershipandExcellence #Leader #MBE #LE #values

Individual values and organizational values are an important aspect of leadership. A leader will be most effective if he/she finds an organization that has a similar purpose, goal or values as him/herself. But is it possibe to adapt to an organization's principles and is it possible to adopt their way of thinking? This is an important issue that I have been thinking about in the last few days. It is especially important in to me at this moment because this is around the time we are seeking employment and applying for jobs. This is where we have to analyze a company's values, if they have any, and assess how much of a fit we are for these companies or firms. Also we have to evaluate whether we will be motivated enough in this organization or field of work to be a "star" (active leader) and a "fan" (active follower). Or is this organization going to lead me to a dead-end job and transform me into a negative uncooperative member of the company? Currently I have not really determined what values I am looking for at the positions I am applying for. This is actually due to not having had the chance to really delve deep into my mind and heart and determine what values are important to me and what do I consider "deal breakers." This won't be a quick or easy task, but I think these class discussions have gotten me on my way to refklecting on what I perceive to be important in an organization.
