How goes your weekend? Ready for our Value Your Month to Value Your Life update?
In our Value Pairings way recently, September and October were both dedicated to the Managing with Aloha values of Kuleana (the value of personal responsibility) and ‘Ike loa (the value of learning).
VYMTVYL = Focus, Constancy, Results
“Working within a value of the month program gives you focus, it gives you habit-building constancy — value alignment gets woven into your normal m.o. versus degrading into occasional practice, aka ‘flavor of the month’ flip-flopping — and it gives you tangible results in seemingly small, but meaningful ways, as those results get naturally connected to the seasonality of your working progressions.”
— Change it up with Value Pairings
For November and December, we will be gaining the goodness of value immersion continuing with ‘Ike loa, and moving on to Ha‘aha‘a, the value of humility.
From our values vocabulary: 4. VALUE IMMERSION
IMMERSION means to go ‘all in.’
When you choose a value for your workplace culture, you align it completely — in everything you do (you make it your constant). When confronting change, you realign and audit your value integrity in every strategic juncture.

Give some thought to your own “connective windows” and “strength-building constraints,” and write me if there is anything in particular you’d like to chomp on these next two months with ‘Ike loa and/or with Ha‘aha‘a. For as Ha‘aha‘a teaches:
Ha‘aha‘a helps us understand that no individual can satisfy every need. All in the ‘Ohana are needed. All are to be respected and supported for the talent and uniqueness they offer.
