Circular values helps simplify transforming your business and projects to a circular model. Think of them as a compass to future proof your organisation.
Values work best when all value indicators and characteristics align. When values are intrinsicly felt and (re)connected. When people manage to connect, aligning to circular values help increase well-being and an overall sense of satisfaction.
Apart from personal values, it is also important to learn what values help work on impact driven strategies related to social or ecological change. When all elements align, both personal and business related, businesses become impact driven and can take clear steps forward towards the circular model that aligns them to future demands, needs and requirements.
