Values, mission and vision
Values are principles that allow us to guide our behavior. They are fundamental beliefs that help us to prefer, appreciate and choose some things or behaviors instead of others. They are also a source of satisfaction and fulfillment. They provide us a guideline to formulate goals and purposes whether personal or collective. Values fend for themselves.
