Prioritising Principles

Blackpool, UK


Building on values, this is now your moment to think about principles. These are the golden rules that guide us - things we believe are absolutely right or absolutely wrong, and the lines we won’t cross. One example might be treating others the way you want to be treated. However, these principles can be influenced by situations we might find ourselves in - at work or with friends or family - so communicating them effectively can be really important. This is your chance to reflect on your principles and think about situations when they’ve been influenced by others.
