This page is a resource for my ebook "Values – A workbook for clarifying and articulating your personal core values" which is about the importance of exploring and articulating your personal values.

It also clarifies the confusion around what values are versus beliefs and attitudes and use examples to illustrate the different concepts.

Most importantly for you my ebook includes a simple but very effective method for exploring and articulating your core values.

If you wonder what the value of that is it's because you haven't read my ebook.... yet... But I have a feeling you will soon. Get my ebook here!

Fredrik is an executive coach, workshop leader and facilitator focused on leadership development from the inside-out and is passionate about conversations that explore intrinsic motivations and push the boundaries of the comfort zone.

Personal core values

If you're not comfortable enough with English to associate meaning to these words use Google Translate or similar.

This list is rather long so if you feel overwhelmed you may want to start with this shorter list of values.
If you're missing something you can come back here to the long list.
