by Yoram Solomon(Excerpt from my upcoming book The Book of Trust):One element of personal shared values is encompassed in the why we are taking action, and what action we choose to take. Imagine two people as in the image below. Each is driven by motivations and interests that are not necessarily made visible to the other person. These are their “Why”. Why they are doing things.
