Value Exchange Concept

The concept of Value Exchange is key to an individual making choices in their workscape about Value. The basic exchange of Value is between self as an Employee, and the organisation who is their Employer.

When people do the Value Exchange Activity and define what Value they seek to receive and what Value they want to contribute – there are moments of relief and delight. With this potent knowledge, they use their personal power to make plans, they reset their expectations, stress is reduced, and creativity is released.

Read about the concept in detail in this article: A Value-based approach to shaping your workscape

Listen to creator Helen Palmer, share about the concept:
