About this interview:
How can values form our pathways into future society?
“Different values celebrate all the beauty that we have, the treasure trove of jewels that we have on our planets within our hearts within each of us.”
In this episode Amisha talks to Mandeep Rai, a global authority on values and author of ‘The Values Compass: What 101 Countries Teach Us About Purpose, Life and Leadership’ taking us on a journey to 101 countries around the world, highlighting a single, unique value that has defined each nation’s history, culture, and global influence. She has travelled to more that 150 countries and reported as a journalist for the BBC World Service and Reuters, amongst others.
Amisha and Mandeep speak about how values form who we are, how they are the foundations that bring out the best in our different cultures and how they are a celebration of all the beauty we hold in our hearts.
They share that we may change and adjust our values in small steps and in big shifts according to our life cycles. Mandeep’s book travels through a diversity and variety of values from allover the world guiding us to connect us with our own choice of values. She believes that when we become clear of our values we live from a place of integrity and depth necessary for stepping into true leadership.
Together they explore how the current season during this pandemic presents the opportunity to assess and align ourselves with our values in order to contribute our gifts and talents. We learn that living authentically in our values is a gift of service to our communities. This presents an invitation to build a more equal society rooted in community, where we honour the values and cultural practices of our ancestors bringing these forth for the future care of those vulnerable in our midst, especially the elderly, who’s shoulders we stand on.
“What we have right now is an opportunity to create a more equal valued society where each and every one of us can truly step into what is most true to us and for that to be of the highest contribution.” Mandeep Rai
