Family Values are the moral and ethical principles traditionally upheld and transmitted within a family, as honesty, loyalty, love, respect, and faith. I have always been intrigued by the values that each family member brings to the fold.
Ten days ago we spent a whole week in Japan as a family vacation. Here again was opportunity to discover the uniqueness that each individual family member is endowed with and how these endowments are displayed in our daily lives. Something that came to light for me was that my children have grown up and they wish to be more independent. During all our past vacations, I had to draw out or suggest plans for each day. That was the past and for now my life got much easier because they made all plans. I had to accept it and give them a chance to prove their independence.
The norm is that even the best laid out plan can run into obstacles. When that happened, I could see the respect and understanding that took place rather than any bickering or dissatisfaction. When we could do that, there was love and more joy with each passing day of our vacation.
Discovering our family values helped us as a family and we are already looking forward to our next vacation.
In today’s business environment, corporate values play a distinct importance on how every employee behaves. When everyone in the organization is living the corporate values, the customers benefit. The corporate values bring connection between the organization and every stakeholder.
