When work-life is aligned to our values (the things that are most important to us), we feel better. We have more motivation and satisfaction with our jobs, and less stress; this decreases the risk of burnout—an occupational hazard for people who don’t define success in their own terms but rather by some external standard or system. It gives us a sense of meaning and purpose, a feeling we’re connected to something bigger than ourselves—both potent sources of wellbeing.

You might use it to:

  • Manage your tasks and priorities (and that endless to-do list)
  • Set performance goals
  • Prepare for a job interview
  • Reflect on your current role and organisations
  • Identify your motivators (and your stressors)
  • Consider your “non negotiables” from an employer
  • Set your boundaries
  • For leaders, this tool will help you do all these things with the people in your team. It’ll be handy for your one-to-ones, performance reviews and team days.
