Hi it’s Alex Wilson-Campbell here, the Founder of the Careers With Purpose Summit and I just wanted to say thank you so much for attending the summit. And for all those who missed out on each one of the sessions you really missed a treat from 27 of the world’s best speakers, thought leaders in a range of different subjects and although the summit is over it is time to take what you learned and put it into action so that you can make any necessary steps, any necessary improvements to your career so you can move forward….
.. And with that in mind, over the next few days i’m going to review some of the summit speaker [sessions] selecting some of my favourite quotes and giving my interpretation on what those quotes potentially mean and how you could use them in your career to take things forward.
And our first speaker is founder of the Values Centre, Richard Barrett is his name. He is also Chair of the Values Centre. Richard had lots of great insight to share on the importance of values in work and life. One of the key things I learned is that your values change over the course of your life. So, the values you had as a 20 or 25 year old may not necessarily be the same when you reach 35, 40 years old. So it stands to reason with that being the case that you will need to self assess over the course of your career and do that on a regular basis. One of the things that Richard said is that if you feel fearful or uneasy, that may indicate the presence of a potentially limiting value.
Values are driven by your fears.
And we’ve all been there. We’ve all sat at work where we’ve felt a sense of trepidation or you feel a sense of anxiety on your journey into work.
