Six Value Medals™
A Revolutionary New Framework, Book and Course for Leaders, Teams and Individuals

What if you could count on employees to sort options using a commonly understood framework that would increase the value of the organization at every turn—for customers, employees, stockholders, the community, and more?You have one or more intact teams trained and using Six Thinking Hats®. Now that team either adds a new person or is about to interact with another department that hasn’t had the benefit of Six Hats training. You want to be able to tap into the full potential of the Six Hats, but everyone isn’t up to speed. What do you do?
The key to making decisions that will deliver maximum value lies in creating a framework that is specific enough to add meaning but is lso pliable enough to
The skills taught in Six Value Medals™ help people quickly but thoroughly scan for values, prioritize which values are the most important to pursue, and then ensure that top values are addressed and maximized every step of the way. It’s like putting on a pair of glasses with six lenses, one for each of six important value categories:
|Gold Medal: Gold is precious, and so are people. The gold medal asks, what matters to the people? Human values include pride, achievement, a sense of belonging, hope, trust, and growth.
Silver Medal: Silver impacts the organization. What matters to the organization? What are our goals as a company and how will a prospective action help us or hinder us in pursuit of these goals?
Steel Medal: Steel must be as strong as possible. The steel medal asks what are the implications for quality? How will the decision at hand impact the quality of what we do?
Glass Medal: Glass can take the shape of many functional, often beautiful and colorful objects. The glass medal covers change, innovation, simplicity
Wood Medal: Wood spotlights ecology values in the broadest sense. Is there a positive or negative impact to the environment if we take this road?
Brass Medal: Brass looks like gold but is not. Brass medal values examine appearances and perception. How will this action be interpreted?
Too often, organizations cannot articulate the basis for their decisions. As a result, they may fail to notice and resolve conflicts in values that have a negative impact on employees, the organization, clients, community relationships, and more. Until now there has not been a concrete way to assess the impact that a decision may have on our attempts to create and protect value. When employees can scan, identify and prioritize values, they become vital partners in growing your business.
