The Life Values Inventory was developed to help individuals and organizations clarify their values and serve as a blueprint for effective decision-making and optimal functioning.

Your values are the lenses through which you view yourself and your world. They serve as a foundation for your self-evaluation and your evaluations of others. They influence your thoughts, feelings, and behavior. They also shape organizational culture.

As values develop they are crystallized and prioritized to form a values system. In essence, they form your own "personal truth" from which self-esteem, fulfillment and resilience develop.

100% Free

Strategies + Suggestions

Once Steps 1 - 3 are completed you're presented with practical strategies to increase your productivity, fulfillment, and resilience. The goal of the program is to help clarify your values and promote flourishing.

Come back anytime

The program has been designed so you can go at your own pace. Complete all 3 assessment steps at one time, or take a break and come back later; it's up to you. Once you've completed the entire program you can come back to access your results and the supplemental strategies.

Your Values: Then -vs- Now

You can fill out the Life Values Inventory multiple times — we call each time a "Session". You can think of a session as a snapshot in time of your past values. With that information you can easily compare how you ordered your values in the past with how you prioritize them today.

Privacy + Security

Only your name and email address is required in order to use the program. Our system is designed to keep this information separate from your values results. This way, we ensure that any results data used for research purposes is completely anonymous. We may email you in the future about the Life Values Inventory Online but we will never share or sell your name or email address to anyone.
