In the ValuesJam Studio, ValuesJam co-founders Lisa and Alan will be ValuesJamming the entire deck of ValuesJam cards during 2022, starting with Innovation at the beginning of January:
“We touched on everything from supermarkets and banks to Uber and even teleporting and cloning. Watch it now on our NEW YouTube channel:
Key takeaways included the importance of innovation being for a purpose rather than for the sake of it and the importance to allow room for (rather than fear of) failure to motivate innovation.”
Let your fellow ValuesJammer band members know what you are up to e.g recording sessions, new releases, tours, photoshoots etc…

“I loved the ValuesJam card deck launch promotion offering a second free one to give away. A beautiful realisation of the mission to inspire harmony in the world through a greater understanding of who we are, self and others, through our values.
So, as an enthusiastic fan of the ValuesJam concept, I purchased the cards and wondered who in my circle could benefit from receiving the second deck in turn. I didn’t have to think very long, actually, before choosing Hans Vandenberghe.
Hans is a Belgian consciousness coach who also works internationally. He creates a safe space for his clients to start creating any experience they choose by expanding their consciousness and unlocking their creative power. He wants people to experience freedom, discover new opportunities and learn how to impact the world. Values are second nature to Hans. He accompanies others – of which I have been fortunate enough to be a part – on their journey with kindness, humility and authenticity, but also well grounded in the reality of our world.
When we had our ValuesJam conversation in the first days of this new year, online as we often do these days, we were both filled with renewed energy and each of us chose our three most important values in this spirit. First of all, choosing 3 values among the 59 in the deck is already a performance in itself! And fun to include in the interaction. But also a very nice way to build bridges between what these values represent for each of us. And like a magical patchwork, your co-ValuesJammer gradually takes shape before your eyes, as the exchange goes on. Most definitely a meaningful experience!”
Pauline Crawford (1) Dr. Pauline Crawford – The Conversation Maker | LinkedIn joined the ValuesJammer band in December and played in a couple of brilliant ValuesJam sessions:
There was a group ValuesJam on the topic of Forgiveness which proved to be an emotional rollercoaster with tears of sadness, laughter, contemplation and light bulb moments.
Then Pauline and Alan Williams explored Wealth and enjoyed a wonderful exploration of how, ultimately, Wealth is the sum of all our life experiences (good and not so good). They envisioned a magic cloak with video clips, photos, pictures, images, words, souvenirs, textures/fabrics, colours and sounds of a lifetime of memories, experiences and events which we wear and gives us special powers.
It’s a new year and we think this track captures the anticipation and excitement perfectly Nina Simone – Feeling Good Lyrics | Genius Lyrics. What tracks would be on your ValuesJam playlist (songs associated with values, generally or specifically)? You can add yours here :
We are excited to have started exploring a collaboration with an amazing App called Timelines which records your life events for both you and those you hold dear, so that future generations can see and hear your life story in your own words. In particular, we see opportunity for ValuesJam to be used in residential care settings to provide the residents with a playful way to inspire meaningful conversations with the care providers, fellow residents and visitors. We already know that ValuesJam sessions often surface forgotten memories and experiences so this is also a wonderful way to create additional content for somebody’s Timeline.

The AhA! of alignment and synergies when values-led business leaders are ready to use their unique voice to affect change rather than keep the status quo.

What drew you to adopt the ValuesJam card Wisdom?
I have gained many blessings from an attitude of gratitude for the experiences enjoyed or endured throughout my life and leadership to date.
