In this workshop, participants will be introduced to the concept and practice of value-driven leadership. Drawing largely from an Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) framework, participants will learn to identify, clarify, and develop plans for enacting personally chosen leadership values. Because value-driven leadership is an iterative and lifelong process, materials will be shared to support ongoing practice as values continue to evolve and circumstances change over time. Course participants will be able to ask questions via webinar chat during the Q&A portion of the course.


  1. Describe the difference between values and goals.
  2. Identify and clarify personal leadership values and learn to set goals and develop action plans based on leadership values.
