Personal values are broad goals that represent what is important to someone. Beliefs are thought constructs that people apply to themselves, others, the world or the future. Personal values and beliefs help to guide our behaviours and decisions we make. A person's beliefs can be positive or negative and true or untrue. When analysing beliefs by their polarity and accuracy one can see where improvements can be made in their lives.  This can be done by reframing untrue beliefs and recognising negative, true beliefs as an opportunity to change.


This course will define what personal values and beliefs are and their role in our everyday life. It will explore and uncover aspired and practiced personal values, describe the personal impact of positive and negative beliefs, identify your existing beliefs and reframe negative, untrue beliefs into positivity and truth.


This course is made up of videos, reading, forum posts and a final quiz. The course content is split into the following sections:

  1. Video

Great course to help you identify your values and beliefs and how to reframe negative, untrue thoughts.

I have done this course as an introduction to leadership. I think it is a great starting course to help you identify the type of leader you aim to be, your beliefs, and how you will implement them to inspire action.

This course helped me understand my values and beliefs more. It also helped me to reflect and contemplate. It was short and brief but substantial and well-explained. And I like the fact that it utilized activity handouts.
This course helps me to identify my deep personal values and beliefs. It changes my perspective as a health care practitioner in a positive way.

I really recommend this programme. All the leadership modules are amazing and really beneficial. I thought in a few situations in my practice that I am doing something wrong and I was blaming myself. However, after I went through these modules I saw the situations from a different perspective and received many new ideas for better management.
