    Values Based Leadership

    in Relationships

    Dr. Mark H. Anshel is professor emeritus at Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro, Tennessee (USA). Dr. Anshel received a Bachelor of Science degree in education from Illinois State University, a Master of Arts degree from McGill University (Montreal) and a Ph.D. from Florida State University (Ph.D.) in performance psychology. Dr. Anshel has 140 research articles published in scientific journals, and numerous books and book chapters in the areas of sport psychology, exercise psychology, and coping with stress. His books include Applied Health Fitness Psychology, Applied Exercise Psychology: A Practitioner’s Guide to Improving Client Health and Fitness (2006), and Sport Psychology: From Theory to Practice (5th ed.). Dr. Anshel has worked as a consultant for the Murfreesboro Police Department for six years in the areas of wellness and stress management. In more recent years of his career Dr. Anshel has developed, validated (in several journal publications), and authored research articles and book chapters on the Disconnected Values Model. The model posits that people are motivated to change their unhealthy habits when they identify an inconsistency, or “disconnect,” between their unhealthy actions and their values (e.g., health, family, faith, integrity, happiness, among others). Behavior change is more likely when the long-term consequences of maintaining unhealthy habits – maintaining the disconnect – are acknowledged and viewed as unacceptable.


    His work with skilled athletes, law enforcement, and highly successful corporate clients over the years indicated a clear need to reexamine our culture’s tendency to recognize success without acknowledging, even celebrating, failure as an integral part of achievement and success. To winners, failure is a gift.

    Contemplating Our Core Values

    in Spirituality

    This week on the Cosmic Citizen we will be discussing core values in the context of The Urantia Book's teachings.  One of the core values that emerged from our shows on bullying was the idea of being an upstander rather than a bystander. Being an upstander means valuing courage. Courage is a core value. Truth, beauty and goodness are also three foundational values frequently expounded upon in The Urantia Book and love is at their core. Consider the following:


    (2:7.12) Truth is coherent, beauty attractive, goodness stabilizing. And when these values of that which is real are co-ordinated in personality experience, the result is a high order of love conditioned by wisdom and qualified by loyalty.


    Values are the fabric of reality, consider these statements:


    (5:4.2) Sooner or later, God is destined to be comprehended as the reality of values, the substance of meanings, and the life of truth.


    (7:1.3) Spiritual values and spirit forces are real. From the viewpoint of personality, spirit is the soul of creation; matter is the shadowy physical body.


    (100:3.5) Values are not conceptual illusions; they are real, but always they depend on the fact of relationships. Values are always both actual and potential—not what was, but what is and is to be.


    Our values are, in fact, powerful drivers of how we think and behave. Ultimately we focus on and create what we value. In the next few weeks we will feature guests who will discuss values and how they effect us and our relationships. 


    Jesus taught that values manifest as fruits of the divine spirit: loving service, unselfish devotion, courageous loyalty, sincere fairness, enlightened honesty, undying hope, confiding trust, merciful ministry, unfailing goodness, forgiving tolerance, and enduring peace.

    Core Values Part III: Creating a Values Based Personal Creed - With John Creger

    in Spirituality

    John Creger is a veteran English teacher and classroom researcher at American High School in Fremont CA. He continually seeks new ways to engage his students more deeply in learning. This stems from his own dissatisfaction with shallow teachings and from his fortuitous discovery of the Urantia Book in his 20s. The book brought him proof of what he had felt all along--this is no shallow universe. With new purpose, John majored in English and graduated with a new mission--to work with teens in the classroom. His writings are published in five languages on three continents.


    Throughout his career, John has tried to help his students find satisfying connections to the universe within and beyond themselves as they gain skills in reading, writing, thinking, and conversing. He has synthesized a model of Deepened Learning from Urantia Book teachings on education and the human condition. John believes this model explains why all who encounter his Personal Creed Project love it. The project centers on each students’ discovery of values.


    In honor of the Personal Creed Project, John received the James Moffett Memorial Award for Teacher Research from the National Council of Teachers of English and the National Writing Project, and numerous other awards.


    His first book isThe Personal Creed Project and a New Vision of Learning (Heinemann 2004). He has published articles in California English, Urantia Fellowship Herald, and the Journal for the Assembly for Expanded Perspectives on Learning. He is considering a second book.


    The Personal Creed Project is being adapted at schools and colleges across the country and beyond. John hopes to create a network of “Creed sites” to pool insights and best practices in deepened learning. He gathers English teachers online to deepen classroom learning and will serve as a consultant to schools and districts while also teaching.  Email him at: jcreger@jps.net.
