I’m joined by David Allison on this episode of the program. David Allison is the founder of The Valuegraphics Database, the world’s first database that can predict and influence behaviour for anything on earth. He is a pioneer of ‘Values Thinking’ as the new best practice for organizational decision-making.
I’m thrilled to have met David recently and once we had a conversation about what we were working on, I knew I wanted to have him on this podcast. David has coined the term, and become a champion of, Values Thinking, the new best practice for organizational decision-making in a post-demographic world. I find the practice fascinating and definitely worth your attention.
We talk about why values thinking works, the difference between virtues and values, what led David to pursue this practice, and much more. David and I are aligned in our thinking in plenty of ways and I’m sure you’ll enjoy this conversation.
- David explains what he does, how he got into it, and what “Valuegraphics” actually are
- How valuable can data be in times of uncertainty?
- This is what led David down this specific path
- David explains why it’s important to get your values in check to be productive and take productive actions
- Does David believe there’s a difference between values and virtues?
- How validating does it feel for David when he sees something that is proof of his concept?
“We have these giant stereotypical ideas in our head of what people are like based on what they are and not who they are.“– David Allison
