about approach values


My values can not only be seen as the guiding principles that I consider for my work but also the key factors that shape my everyday life and the way I see the world. When I think about what I value most in life, they can be listed as follows:


Trust which includes character and competency is the foundation of any relationship. Ability to establish trust is extremely important for any process and should require maximum attention. Because it is the trust that allows us to remove our barriers and bring openness and honesty.

"Technique and technology are important, but adding trust is the issue of the decade." Tom Peters


Accepting that what we believe to be true (the values, norms and assumptions that matter to us) – does not necessarily have to be true for others is an important precondition for any effective human interaction. We are all different and come from different backgrounds. Acceptance does not mean agreement. It just leads to the understanding that there is not one way of doing things but that we can learn from each other.

"I don’t agree with what you have to say but I will defend to the death your right to say it." Voltaire


Change is the only way that frees us up from the point that we get stuck. It is an ongoing process that gives us the opportunity of knowing ourselves better and gaining new perspectives. This allows us move from the point where we are to the point where we aspire to be. The only question is how willing we are to start.

"Change is a door which can only be opened from the inside." Terry Neil


Most of the time we give up without giving a try. What prevents us from experiencing something new is our assumptions and the contexts that we have in our brains. This avoidance may help us stay in our comfort zone. But on the other hand, it eliminates the opportunity of learning whatever the outcome is. What enriches our life are our experiences and learning from them.

"Learning is an experience. Everything else is just information." Albert Einstein
