Classification of Values

Education is a social process; Education is growth;

Education is not preparation for life; Education is life itself. — John Dewey

The prosperity of a country depends not on the abundance of its revenues, not on the strength of its fortifications, not on the beauty of its public buildings; but it consists in the number of its cultivated citizens, in its men of education, enlightenment and character. —martin Luther.

If wealth is lost nothing is lost.

If health is lost something is lost.

If character is lost everything is lost. —M.K. Gandhi (Father of Indian Nation)

Value is a conception, explicit, distinctive of an individual or characteristic of a group of the desirable which influences the selection from available, means and ends of action.

Values are the desirable ends, goals or modes of action which makes human behaviour selective. Value not only orients but also determines human behaviour.

Organizational Savvy is Part of The Leadership Foundations

In the most basic terms, organizational savvy is emotional intelligence on an organizational level. It is a deep understanding of how individuals, teams, and the organization function – and the ability to react appropriately to those factors. Some leadership foundations can exist independently of each other, but an effective leader must have organizational savvy in order to move the organization forward. Let’s find out how to develop this savvy, and in the process we’ll discover what it actually is.

One of the foremost examples of organizational savvy at work is the ability to develop a give-and-take with others. The basics of this go back to the kindergarten playground, where share and share alike is a daily rule. But this also means that you should expect to give back if someone in the organization helps you out. Along with this goes the understanding of the agendas of others. An agenda isn’t necessarily hidden, but it does involve the motivation and inspiration of another person or team. Is the team moving forward quickly because their annual incentive is based on it, or do they have multiple projects that need attention right away? Is the key person you’re developing a “give and take” with someone that’s driven by personal recognition or the desire to see the entire organization succeed? As you become more emotionally intelligent as a leader, you’ll begin to understand others’ agendas.

As we move into the group dynamic, you must learn to be political. The word politics, even in its own world, sometimes brings up an ugly image, but it doesn’t have to. In organizational politics, you must be able to network, promote yourself when it’s appropriate, and build a base of supporters. Remember when we discussed influence and persuasion? This is where those abilities will come in quite handy. But the chief rule with being political is to not let it get you upset. Sometimes the politics of one person can be dirty, while those of another can be beneficial for all involved. Becoming organizationally savvy involves understanding this element and looking at politics as a fact of life and not necessarily as a good or bad element.

Another great way to move to organizational savvy is to learn how to approach various key people or teams appropriately. When you approach someone, it could be to ask for help, to challenge him or her, or to congratulate on a job well done. But you know that what works for you doesn’t work for the next person. For example, you may be the kind of person that becomes embarrassed if you’re highly praised in public, whereas one of your colleagues may gain energy from praise. Some organizations even use testing methods such as Myers-Briggs (MBTI) to determine personality types and develop communication and interaction plans. You don’t have to go this far, but it’s a good idea to keep track of what styles worked with what people.

Now that you’ve seen the good side of organizational savvy, take a look …

Is JK Rowling a Master of the Law of Attraction and Wealth Affirmation?

Whether she is a conscious wealth attractor, or not Ms. Rowling has obviously attracted not just massive wealth, but fame, success and is a generous spirit. America loves a rags-to-riches story and I know I’ll be tuning in on Friday to hear all about what this remarkable woman has to share with Oprah. I’ve read that she’s somewhat at odds with her own religious experience. I haven’t heard whether she is a spiritual woman or not. She could think the Law of Attraction is a bunch of nonsense. Just the same, this woman progressed from a single mom living on welfare to a multi-millionaire in under five years.

In 1998, the Harry Potter books made J.K. Rowling the first self-made billionaire author in history. Just prior to that her publisher advised her to ‘keep her day job’ as there is “little chance of making money in children’s books.” One thing I know for sure, in order to attract and allow in success, wealth, (or any form of well-being), one must be a vibrational match to it. Apparently, J.K. Rowling has no internal conflicts with being wildly successful and wealthy. Perhaps we can learn something about attitude and wealth attraction J.K. Rowling visits with Oprah. We may be able to model how this woman’s journey went from welfare to billionaire.

The majority of us will not become billionaires. Many of us will not even become wealthy. And why not? Why is it so many struggle with wealth? So many struggle to simply make ends meet. There is an internal disconnect. If you’re not manifesting wealth and you’d like to have lots more money, ask yourself: “What beliefs do I have about wealthy people? What judgments do I have about people who win the lottery? What opinions do I have about people who have a lot more than I do?”

It would serve you very well to probe into your firmly held beliefs about wealth and wealthy people. Your beliefs are holding your wealth from you. Money is just another form of energy. It’s neither inherently good nor bad. Start to build a healthy relationship with money and financial well-being. Treat it with respect and appreciation. Appreciate the money you have and it will appreciate for you.…
