Competing Values: Maximizing the Potential of Collaboration

The Competing Values Framework (CVF) is a highly regarded and internationally valued tool that can help a team recognize and transform its culture by identifying the values, gifts and differences held by the individuals within. This fun and thought provoking workshop offers insight into your most natural and valuable ways of contributing to your organization. It will also shine a light on resistance to and invite appreciation for the styles and contributions of others.

You will learn to:

  • Distinguish between the four competing values described by the Competing Values Framework
  • Identify your values and strengths and reflect on those of your colleagues
  • Describe the tension between the four values
  • Discuss possible frustration and resistance with people or teams who have competing values
  • Recognize the value that the framework offers individually and organizationally

You will benefit by:

  • Being able to use the Competing Values Framework to communicate your needs with colleagues
  • Gaining a new perspective on and a new language to describe team dynamics
  • Having the ability to use the language of each strength to better communicate with colleagues
  • Recognizing and appreciating the contributions and differences of others


Anyone who wants to better understand their own values and motivations, while maximizing the potential of collaboration and teams
