About the course
Recognize, clarify, speak and act on your values in your working life. Rather than a focus on ethical analysis, the Giving Voice to Values (GVV) curriculum focuses on ethical implementation.
Giving Voice to Values (GVV) is an innovative approach to values-driven leadership development in business education and the workplace. Rather than a focus on ethical analysis, the Giving Voice to Values (GVV) curriculum focuses on ethical implementation and asks the questions: “What if I were going to act on my values? What would I say and do? How could I be most effective?"
Recognize, clarify, speak and act on your values in your working life.
- Raise ethical issues in an effective manner.
- Learn what to do and say in order to be heard.
- Steer your organization in a new direction better aligned with your values.
Program Format Giving Voice to Values is conducted entirely online over the course of 5 weeks. There are five modules, called Field Manuals, featuring these topics:
- Values in Context
- Values Conflicts
- Speaking Up
- Acting on Values
- Listening for Values
Each field manual contains principle/theory/practice content, videos, quizzes, polls and debate topics/situations for which you are asked to contribute. You'll also have the opportunity to read comments from other members in your cohort and vote for your favorites. You earn badges and points by completing each field manual and receiving votes on your comments. This engaging and social approach is to encourage interaction with your fellow participants and make the experience fun - meaning that you're more likely to remember what you've learned.
For the course to be completely successful, participants should maintain respectful communication with fellow participants and comply with all applicable rules, instructions, requirements and terms of service.
