Simon’s personality is as captivating as the topics he covers.
He breaks away from the crowd of speakers by being absolutely enthusiastic about effectuating change.
He understands that managers can only do so by reaching and currying their colleagues and employees.
His tools such as his card game “The value of values” have proven to be excellent additions to our executive education programme for retail executives.
The playful way in which he communicates his research might seem unconventional, but helps participants to digest his recommendations for driving lasting change in organizations.
Because it is easy to get lost in day-to-day business, managers should take a step back from time to time and think about the greater picture of their business.
This is what Simon has definitely done: inspiring to change others and oneself.
DR. Severin F. Bischof, Research Associate & PhD Candidate University of St. Gallen.
Driven by passion and purpose to make a better world led by positive values, Simon is an everlasting contributor, innovator and a thought leader about values, trust and stress.
His creative game and methodology “The Value of Values” based on his decades of research is one of the best ways to teach values at the workplace and at home.
Working with Simon is a joy. He is positive, fast to respond, decisive and solution focused. Together we had implemented projects in organizations and in communities.

I have met Simon 10 years ago after coming across his MBV model and the “Value of Values” card game. Over the years I learned and worked with the MBV and other models and tools Simon developed. I got to know his work, way of thinking, and more importantly, I got to know him as a person.
Getting familiar with his models is remarkably similar to getting familiar with Simon as a person. At first, you are immediately fascinated. Although you cannot put your finger on it, something feels right. As time passes by, you get to understand the qualities and appreciate the depth.
Both, models and Simon, are inspiring, give a comprehensive flexible framework that respects the uniqueness of each one and at the same time provides the principles that ensure that one will get to his correct wellbeing – organizational and personal. I encourage every manager, coach, and consultant, get to know, learn, and use Simon’s tools and moreover, to be privilege to work with him. You will benefit personally and professionally.

I feel truly privileged to be able to count Professor Simon Dolan as a colleague, collaborator and friend. I have experienced first-hand, Simon’s total commitment and passion for making profound, positive change in individuals and organisations.
My organisation, the Australian based consulting company – the Leadership Alliance, has worked closely with Simon, particularly in the area of individual and workplace values. We have found the Value of Values cards, encompassing the DOLAN 3Es Triaxial Model of Values; an invaluable tool in assisting individual and group understanding, and improving the overall motivation and quality of organisational leadership.
Anyone who has experienced Simon’s inspiring keynote presentations and/or his dynamic, vibrant workshop events, will attest to his intellect, passion and infectious enthusiasm. I commend him to you.
