How Core Values and Family of Origin Impact Your Career

In her sixth article in this series, Anne Whitaker, M.S., J.D., explains the critical role that values and family of origin play in the process of creating a Personal Vision. Most people do not consciously think about their values when exploring careers, and are unable to articulate their top five core values. In addition, most people are not aware of the huge impact their families had during their developmental years, and as a result have difficulty differentiating between messages they want to keep and ones they can drop.

With practical exercises and case studies to illustrate, Anne clearly and effectively explains the importance and impact of identifying your values and understanding the influence of your family of origin.
