  8. 8. Look to the Past • Recall 3 examples of times when you made a challenging values based decision – Story 1: (Organizational) You were clearly responsible to make the decision. You were involved as well as responsible. – Story 2: (Organizational) You were not at all responsible for the situation, but you inserted yourself even though you could have easily avoided it. You were neither involved nor responsible. – Story 3: (Personal) In your personal life – family, neighborhood, friends, identify a story that reveals your values in action.
  9. 9. In Each Story • You were making choices and decisions that mattered to you. • You felt good about you handled the situation (regardless of final outcome). • Think about yourself “in the moment” and recall the decisions you made around how to act and do. • Make note of what you really wanted for yourself and for others.
