Our stories


Thomas Blekman
Global School for Entrepreneurship

« “A lot of entrepreneurial programs are about entrepreneurs and not for entrepreneurs. We focus on a program for entrepreneurs, and we apply the value measurements to give the students a better understanding of themselves” »

Thomas Blekman, co-founder of the Netherland-based Global School for Entrepreneurship, encourages his students to start their own business from day one, and uses Value.Online to help them address questions such as “Why do I want to work here, and what do I want to achieve?” with great results.

« …with the value ranking we have a systematic way of guiding and helping people to move on from their floating thoughts »

As both the project manager of a program for future managers and a business developer in Vetlanda municipality, Heléne Gustavsson has built her own module based on the Point of Value rankings, where she mostly focuses on the value map and the life compass.

Common Space Initiative

« We want to relate to people in a crisis and thereby learn from them what they need. Not to tell them what to do. And that’s the bottom-up approach. »

Mervat Al Sayed, certified Value.Online facilitator, implemented the tool while working with Common Space Initiative, a Syrian peace-building project, as well as a Lebanese NGO. Her goal was a bottom-up approach, where storytelling played a major part.

« … being that age, where you develop in such a fast pace, and make many important life decisions, it is a of great benefit to know your stance. »

At the Hedda Andersson High school, based in central Lund, headmaster Malin Dahlgren has implemented the Value.Online process with both staff and students to help develop students’ ability to work together, be creative and develop their roles as leaders. The school has an entrepreneurial profile, and the task of participating in societal development is of great importance.

Skurups Folkhögskola

« Sometimes, you automatically get put into a certain role that doesn’t necessarily bring out the best of you. But if you work with and discover your true values, you can loosen that grip. »

At Skurups Folkhögskola, both staff, board and students have participated in workshops based on Point of Value's method and tools. We caught up with the school's principal Arvid Gisby.

« All my students make great inner journeys during the course. Many say that ranking has helped them put their values ​​into word, which has widened their self-awareness. Knowing your values help some make big life changes:
they resign, maybe break up with their partner or
move abroad. »
