Personal and cultural values drive the behavior we perceive when interacting with people. But how can we detect these values? How do we deal with different values? How do we not get stuck in opposing values but make a step towards each other to co-create and co-work constructively? How do we handle our own inner conflicts in behaviour and principles?
The values and development square (a coaching model by Paul Helwig / Friedemann Schulz von Thun) provides eye-opening answers. It paves the way for getting out of a bipolar way of looking at different values. It helps to understand the values behind our own and other people’s behaviour and to consciously adjust reaction to get out of one-way communication. The scope of application is wide: our everyday life, at work, in intercultural contexts, intrapersonally and in our human interactions.
Learning through experience: You will get to know the tool and practise it in your contexts. The leading questions will be: How does it work? How to use it? For whom is it suitable? When to use it? When not to use it?
