The idea of “fake it ‘til you make it” gets a bad wrap. It’s one of the easiest ways to progress.

Why? It’s got to do with perception and our skill levels and how these two interact.

I’ve put together a short video to show you how this interaction happens and how you can benefit from it.

Here is an insight on how you can help build belief and alignment between personal drives and personal goals, and that of the organisation that you work for.

The fourth module of the iLead corporate leadership training program is about belief. And to have belief in yourself, that you can achieve, involves, in part, alignment. How do your personal values – what gets you out of bed, what you hold dear – how does that align to the organisational values?

Corporate Leadership Training: Your Values

Now, you’ll have an understanding or an insight into what your values are, but maybe you don’t know the full depth of your values. What are the values, what drives your organisation? Now, before you say, “Dollars,” look beyond that, because the reality is the company that you work for, it’s probably easier to turn a profit by selling everything and sticking the money in funds and playing the stock market or commodities or whatever the case is. It’s not always profit that drives a business. It’s very important, but it’s not always what drives it.

Do Your Values Align?

Do your values line up to organisational values? If they do, what happens is it’s easier for you to go off and implement what it is the organisation wants to achieve. If they don’t line up, there’s going to be a level of friction, and that level of friction is going to hold you back as a leader, as a person, it’s going to hold your team back from achieving what it is that they’re after.

Now, looking at the values, it’s not about saying, “Well, the values don’t align. You need to leave.” It’s about working out where the commonality between individual values and corporate values lies, so you can operate in that area and achieve what it is that you’re after.

In corporate leadership training, we find the commonality.

This is just one of the many techniques that are in the Belief module of the iLead program. How do individuals align their personal values to organisational values so they can achieve more?

What I’d love you to do if you can is below, pop in a comment that tells me how your values align to where it is that you work, and how it helps drive you, or if they don’t align, what it is that you feel is in conflict.
