The value of values
Why do people behave the way they do? What makes them respond differently to different situations or stimulus?
It is because different people see things differently – and the determining factor that drives these different perspectives and emotions is a person’s values.
Our values are the nest of beliefs and motivators – largely subconscious – that underpin our attitudes to almost everything we encounter. They are tied directly into our emotions – not our rational faculties. They are what so frequently make us choose something or perform an action before we have really thought about the consequences.
If we can understand a person’s values we can better understand why they do what they do. More importantly we can influence them – not in any “controlling” sense but by making a choice or behaviour more desirable, more natural.
At Public we use ‘values’ as a primary tool to unlock creative solutions for clients and as a shortcut to more effective communications. This IP has been developed and tested over a number of years – and it has added value to brands and businesses time and time again.
