Thank you for taking the Kairios Values Perspectives survey.

This graph is a summary of all the choices made by the group in completing each of the three steps in Kairios Values Perspectives survey. It represents a values energy “snapshot.” Most highly-energized values are in red; next-most in blue; least in gray italic. Total values “energy” in each Perspective is represented by a relative percentage. Note that not selecting values does not mean they are not active; they are either less important in aggregate or are already activated and need little conscious attention.

Questions to consider:

In what ways might this graph reflect how you have experienced each other as a group?

How do individual/diverse values and values Perspectives/worldviews align with this snapshot? How do they differ?

What values might you choose to operationalize as norms in your group? What additional values might you wish to consider?

Each cell in the graph represents one person’s likely core and secondary Perspectives.

When you took the Kairios Values Perspectives survey, you received a personal report that provided a likely “core” Perspective. 

We all have energy distributed through the six values Perspectives, and knowing your second most-highly energized Perspective can add to your understanding of your unique values sets. One or more of these Perspectives tends to act as the “lens” through which we make sense of our most-important values. In effect, it constitutes a general worldview for each of us.

If you can complete the survey 48 hours in advance of the class session you will receive by email the name of your second Perspective. You can use The Six Values Perspectives document to find a description of it. Since we all define and live our values uniquely, only you can make sense of how these two Perspectives may combine in a way that you can “validate” as being descriptive of what is most important to you.

The Core and Second Perspectives are calculated using a simple algorithm, based on all the choices you made in the course of taking the survey. If you feel these attributions do not describe you, you may feel free to determine for yourself based on these descriptions which Perspective(s) do. For some people, this may also include claiming a third highly-energized Perspective.

We posit four leadership Styles based on the Values Perspectives model
