This article analyses the director’s individual values of three organizations and their perception concerning the organizational values. The research had been developed with 137 directors, which work in a private, a public organization and in a cooperative, and had utilized two inventories to collect data. Data had been analysed by SPSS-Statistical Package for Social Sciences and revealed that, concerning the individual values, for the public organization director’s, the auto-transcendental values are the less important, and the conservational values are the most important for the directors of the cooperative. Concerning the organizational values, public organization’ directors had perceived that de conservational values are less important for their organization, and the dominate, authonomy and igualitarian values are perceived for coooperative’ directors as most important. The conclusion presents a discussion concerning that the individual values of the directors, even though the organizational values of the organization where they work can be influenced by the economic sector where the organization is, and by the organizational culture.
