Several studies show that people who have insight and knowledge of their own personal values are more committed and motivated - both in their private life and at work.
If they can also find coherence between their own values and the workplace, the effect is even greater. Stress and anxiety associated with work is reduced. Leaders who have insight into both their personal and organisational values are perceived to be more credible and find it easier to make decisions.
In our analysis of commitment linked to values, we start from Posner & Schmidt's research and measurement method. As you can see in the graph to the right, the individual's commitment in the workplace (on a scale of 1 to 7) increases in relation to his/her insight about personal values. Having insight only about the organisational values but no clarity about personal values has no effect.
We can measure employee commitment before and after a Point of Value programme.
