Core Constructs

Can I thank everyone for their replies to my query on core constructs, which
have done much to clarify this for me.

I wonder if some of the confusion arises from the use of the word 'value'.
Management textbooks on workplace culture refer extensively to 'shared
values' but I'm sure we don't turn up at work with common core constructs.
On the one hand it may be that, as Beverly says, 'Our very being is at
issue'. On the other hand we may construe ourselves in terms of shared
social norms, but hold these lightly.

Best wishes for a happy Christmas
