Week 4 Focus – VALUES – What’s important to you?
Focus Question: What are the values that anchor your business?
Like a compass, values provide an important anchor for us. They influence our decisions, ways we work, and how we connect with others. What are the values which influence your work?
Working with Values as a Coach is a foundational part of what we do.There are many different ways to work with values as a coach including:
Use the downloadable values checklist (found below) to highlight different values you hold. Once you have identified your top 5, give them a tagline or 3-4 adjectives each.
For example: If one of my values is high touch, that also means – small group size, integrating 1-1 calls with group calls, and taking time to really connect.
Connection to the Workbook and Planner
Given that values are such a core part of our work, you are invited to review these several times throughout the workbook.
As part of the Iceberg you are invited to identify your top 10 values for you and your business. Write these out on page 24 (CBB) or page 25 (PDT). You may want to read through this entire section from pages 23 – 29.
There is also space on page 38 under “Be True to Who you Are” - The Micro-Vision on page 38 (CBB) or page 42 (PDT).
You are invited to return to this in the Ecosystem in Section 4, noting your top 5 values as part of your anchoring system, grounding you (page 104 – CBB; page 108 – PDT). Note your top 5 values there as well.

Yesterday I hosted a 30 minute virtual launch call. I talked about the background of the book, who it's for, and take you inside the book's covers as well so you can see some of the tools it includes. Enjoy!
As we start to wind down the year, I'm pleased to announce one last "virtual" booster that you are invited to. I'm calling it the 14 Days of PlanDoTrack. It's in celebration for the release of the new PlanDoTrack Workbook and Planner next week (Friday December 14th). If you have not picked up your copy on Amazon, pick it up today. The workbook and planner is geared for virtual and remote professionals (although most of it will apply to you if you work face-to-face as well!). It's geared for virtual and remote leaders, team members and also virtual businesses.
Over the next two weeks, I'll be hosting (or posting) a series of daily events called 14 Days of PlanDoTrack. What's nice about it, it is that it's bringing together many of the different program elements I work around. The events will pull in year-end events I have planned under the Effective Virtual Conversations umbrella, Coaching Business Builder and Teams365. I hope that you will join us.
It all kicks off today, Friday December 7th at 10 am ET for my first short call. Today I'll be doing an introduction to PlanDoTrack, and will take you inside the planner. I hope that you can join us on zoom (in zoom room 270-302-0415). Download the schedule here.
I'll be posting regular updates and links to the daily events, which also include Journaling Prompts and the 19 for 2019 Productivity Hacks which have just started over at the Teams365 blog.
I hope that you'll join us. Check out the entire schedule here, and visit the dedicated 14 days page here on the website as well!
