The Pattern

1. Identify an area. Think of one realm of life where values seem confusing (relationships, work, etc).

2. Elicit a hierarchy of criteria. Think of something trivial that you could do, but you wouldn't (e.g., standing on a chair, throwing a piece of chalk across the room). "Doing the dishes.

What do you accomplish by not doing this?" "I save time." (Always get the criteria stated in the positive—what the person wants.)

"What would get you to do this even though it would violate that particular criterion?" (i.e., saving time, though a waste of time). "If someone came for a visit."

"So what do you find important about that?" (As they keep adding more context, find out what the person values in that.)
