Description

Join us on Thursday, May 23rd for the HER Women in Business Luncheon hosted by the Gazette and NRG Media.

Nancy Hauserman, Professor Emeritus, University of Iowa will give a keynote address followed by a panel discussion featuring 5 successful local business women. Following the luncheon at 1:30 an optional workshop is offered for those who would like to dive into the topic further.

BLUEPRINT FOR SUCCESS: ALIGNING YOUR WORK WITH YOUR VALUES

Personal values – respect, truth, honesty, etc. – make us who we are. If we’re lucky, our jobs support
and enhance those values. But sometimes they don’t.

To enjoy a truly successful and fulfilling career, you need to identify and understand your personal
values and find ways to make sure your job responsibilities align well with them. Often, this is easier
said than done. You may have to prioritize your values because they conflict with situations found in
the business world. If you value honesty, but also value the ability to not cause others harm, what do
you do if a work friend asks you to tell a white lie to your superior? Or, what if you have ethical concerns
about a new business venture? Aligning our values with our work is rarely an all-or-nothing proposition.

This workshop will provide attendees with the following:
• The opportunity to clearly identify and prioritize your primary values. What do you value
the most in your life? What values drive your decision-making?
• A decision-making process that enables you to more fully consider the ethical implications
of decisions you may need to make in the work place.
• A means of resolving conflicts that may arise between competing values. If you and your
employer prioritize different values, or if your personal values would lead to a different
business outcome, how do you respond?
• The chance to more fully consider how various facts or circumstances may affect your ability
to honor your values and how you might respond when those tough decisions arise.
