Do you distinguish between values and virtues? Does your supervisor, co-worker or someone you know distinguish between values and virtues? Why or why not? Provide examples.
I feel values are personal beliefs based on an individuals morals and virtues are the actions or behaviors that result from the values. For example, I feel that valuing success is common among many folks in their personal and professional lives. For a business leader to value success of their company he or she would possess virtues of creative intelligence, accountability, high communication and empathy. I spoke with an SVP about this and honestly, he had a problem separating the two which I would imagine is common. I certainly feel values and virtues are intertwined and too many, outside of this study, may not understand the difference but practice making decisions based on values and exhibiting through virtues.
