Abstract: Organizations increasingly expect people to move between roles which involve varying combinations of professional (vocational), leadership, and entrepreneurial responsibilities. While there has been much research into the relationship between values and leadership style, we know little about how values contribute to entrepreneurial, professional and leadership motivations. Correlations from a study of 272 undergraduate students suggest that universal and cultural values can distinguish between these motivations. Leadership and entrepreneurial motivation share a basis in achievement and stimulation values, while entrepreneurial motivation is distinguished by low emphasis on values of conformity and security. Professional motivation shares little in common with the other two types; it is characterized by hedonism and uncertainty avoidance
