Communicating Values

In this episode, herdacious host Lorelei chats with Brianna Harrington about the benefits of communicating our personal and professional values in the workplace. Staying true to oneself, dedicating time to family, prioritizing loyalty, seeking justice, securing an hour a day to watch bad YouTube covers of “I Want It That Way” — whatever it may be, we all have those few core principles that make us who we are. But as important as our values are to us individually, we can often feel inclined to abandon them in the workplace for the sake of acquiescence to its culture and its people. Instead, Brianna challenges us to infuse our values into our work environments in a way that can benefit us, both personally and professionally. As a speaker and consultant passionate about pursuing a fulfilling life, Brianna teaches us that our values are not something subject to being switched on and off once we step foot into the (zoom) office; instead, they are so deeply ingrained into who we are that they enhance our performance at work simply by making us feel happier and more in tune with ourselves. From dedicating time for self-reflection to respecting and accommodating differing opinions, Brianna guides us through the how-to's of effectively communicating our core values with those around us so that we’re able to foster the most supportive space for ourselves, enabling us to live and work optimistically!
