Practicing Positive Leadership: Competing Values In Positive Leadership

Explore Your Organization’s Culture and How It Impacts Collaboration and Performance

The Competing Values Framework (CVF) emerged over twenty-five years ago during research about organizational effectiveness and organizational culture and has since been validated by numerous studies. The concept of “organizational effectiveness” is deceptively simple to understand. How do we know if one organization is more effective than another? In order to answer this question, it is necessary to consider that not all organizations and organizational leaders will reach a consensus on what it means for their organization to be effective. Furthermore, how do we assess the culture of an organization and know if one organization’s culture differs from that of another organization?

During the course, learners will explore the Competing Values Framework, learn how to conduct assessments using the CVF, and analyze those results to diagnose your future leadership capabilities.

As you complete the Competing Values Framework, you will collaborate with your peers and develop an action plan that creates a culture of positivity, engagement and empowerment.
