Uncovering Your Values-Based Organization


Shawn Gulyas, BFA, MFA
The Thought Catalyst, humanworks


Courage Track: Moral

Bring your organization to life through a values lens that speaks from the heart. Learn from real-life examples of organizations who have energized their environment and created a unique way of working through uncovering what was there all along. Are your current values professional or gutsy? Learn a process that brings your organization’s unique values to life as if they were one of your five senses making them tangible and actionable. Then learn how to let them elevate every human element they touch. Discover your “true north” and set the stage for your talent of tomorrow and your people of today. 

Learning Objectives: 
  • Participants will evaluate their organization’s current set of core values through a new lens.
  • Participants will learn a process to uncover the true values of their organization.
  • Participants will learn what people touchpoints can be impacted and elevated by core values.

Speaker Biography: 

humanworks was born out of a belief that people matter. Period. Shawn Gulyas exists to design and facilitate creative experiences that challenge one’s thinking and action – helping individuals and companies find their authenticity, breathe into their well-being, and elevate their people touchpoints. 
Last year, after a 25 year career filled with growth and learning with La Macchia Enterprises (LME) / The Mark Travel Corporation (TMTC) as Vice President of Human Resources, Shawn decided to venture out and get his hands dirty with other organizations in need of bringing their work to life through championing people. In less than a year, Shawn and his team have guided organizations in discovering what is at the core of their reason for being, developing unique performance management practices, enlivening their talent discovery process, establishing clarity in strategic planning and helping individuals add their greatest value through understanding their natural instincts and unique abilities. Think of Shawn as a “jump-starter” of energy and ideas around the belief that everyone matters and as a leader who creates cultures and communities where values, natural instincts and well-being are the essence of success.
