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
