SOFT SKILLS Competence 4: Values and action (Full Time English MADRID)

Sessions: 10th and 24th February, 14.30-16.00

Friday, 24 de February, 2017 14:30

To distinguish principles from values turns out to be a must in order to understand the fact that human beings are not only qualified by their values but also, and fundamentally, by their principles. These principles are the features which will end up shedding light on what type of person we’re dealing with.

That person who attempts to foresee the results of his/her actions upon others aiming at their well-being is adjusting his/her behavior to a set of principles (responding to the question what for) which in turn will be in need of action: the values (responding to the question how). If somebody strikes us as being committed, loyal or hardworking (values), we don’t necessarily infer they are positive features if what this person is trying to achieve is considered to be selfish, evil or mean (principles.)

Doing the right thing is clearly opposed to doing no matter what thing right. It’s not only about intellectual and emotional knowledge. Ethics takes over any other factor and works towards a common welfare.

The participants in the 1st workshop are the same as the participants in the 2nd workshop. You register only once for both sessions. The 2 workshops are interrelated and deal with different parts of the competence. Limited capacity.
