Values First

Laura Eigel

Between the constant pressures of job performance and demands on your time, it’s easy to lose sight of your values, letting them shift out of alignment. Those simple misalignments are keeping you from feeling joyful and fulfilled.

The Values First Framework, developed by Laura Eigel, PhD, can help you change that picture by recentering your life around what truly matters to you. Learn through the personal stories and experiences of the many leaders Laura has worked with to use your values to guide your decisions. Discover a step-by-step process to identify your values, audit your time, and set the boundaries you need to live your values for the long haul.

With proven reflections and exercises to help you zero in on your own core values and discover what authentic leadership means for you, Values First will help you shift out of the struggle and into the flow of the joyful career and life you are meant to live.

Values First is an excellent resource if you have ever wondered if you're living your life in alignment with what is most important to YOU. This book explores areas that many of us think about...and have no idea how to accomplish. But in this book, Laura lays out clear steps for uncovering your values, assessing how well you're doing in living them, and then giving you ideas and options for creating a life that you love and can be proud of. I really loved the different values she explored—from family to learning, and everything in between. Rather than telling you what to do, this book gives you the tools you need to figure out what's most important to you, and then the inspiration you need to live it out. Let's go!
