With regards to instrumental values, managers want employees who are responsible, honest, capable, imaginative, and logical. Managers in the business world tend to rate ambition, capability, responsibility, and freedom higher than people in general. Highly successful managers typically place more emphasis on economic (a comfortable life) and political (social recognition) values than less successful managers. Managers also place more value on sense of accomplishment, self-respect, a comfortable life, and independence than the population in general. The instrumental value managers held highest for themselves was ambition; their highest-held terminal value was sense of accomplishment. Personal values rather than social values and those oriented toward achievement predominate among managers.

It made sense to me as soon as I read it; you'll develop that intuition too if you invest more time reading about it.

Glad to help.
