Mandeep Rai is a global authority on values, working with companies, institutions, and individuals around the world. She has travelled to more than 150 countries and reported as a journalist for the BBC World Service and Reuters, amongst others. In her latest book, The Values Compass, Mandeep discusses the importance of values and how they can be used to guide people in their lives and careers. The book has received international acclaim, with the Wall Street Journal calling it a “gem” and the Sunday Times describing it as a “riveting read”. In this episode, I talk to Mandeep about her book and the importance of values in today’s world.
In the book, Mandeep discusses 101 different values that she has encountered in her travels around the world. She explains how each of these values can be used to guide people in their lives and careers. For example, the value of “justice” can help people make decisions based on fairness and equity, while the value of “creativity” can help people think outside the box and come up with innovative solutions to problems.
Mandeep believes that it is important for people to know their values and to live their lives in accordance with these values. She says that this is the key to finding fulfilment and happiness in life. As she puts it, “living a values-based life is the ultimate act of self-love”.

On the Topic of Values
What are values?
Values are principles or standards that a person or group believes in. They can be personal values, such as honesty and integrity, or they can be professional values, such as excellence and innovation.
Why are values important?
Values are important because they guide people in their lives and careers. They help people make decisions based on fairness and equity, and they help people think outside the box and come up with innovative solutions to problems.

How can people find out their own values?
One way for people to find out their own values is to do a self-reflective exercise. This involves thinking about the things that are important to you, and writing down a list of your top five values. Another way to find out your values is to ask the people who know you best what they think your values are. Read the book – Click here to get it form Amazon
