Whether you are a business leader, employee or a practitioner in another field, how can you effectively stand up for your values when pressured by your boss, colleagues, customers, or shareholders to do the opposite?
Despite all the internal and external pressures surrounding ethical decision making, some people do voice and act on their values, and do so effectively. So what makes them effective? What do they do differently? They strategize and prepare.
And then, they practice. Much like athletes practice their sport, strengthening their muscles, improving their abilities and bolstering their chances of success, those who are effective voicing their values in the workplace often rehearse different scenarios and script their conversation in advance.
What if we could learn the skills and tools needed to act on our values in an authentic and results-oriented way? Drawing on the actual experience of business practitioners as well as social science and management research, GVV helps students, business leaders, employees, and other practitioners identify the many ways that individuals can and do voice their values in the workplace, and provides the opportunity to script and practice this voice in front of their peers.
GVV is not about persuading people to be more ethical.
Rather, GVV starts from the premise that most of us already want to act on our values, but that we also want to feel that we have a reasonable chance of doing so effectively and successfully.
This pedagogy and curriculum are about raising those odds. Most ethics courses focus on hypothetical decision—making and determining what is the right thing to do. The most significant contribution to business ethics I have experienced in my professional career, Giving Voice to Values is destined to shape the behavior of future generations.
Whether you are a professor, student, corporate leader or practitioner in business, government, medicine or another field, Giving Voice to Values GVV provides the practical tools and skills needed to effectively voice and act on your values in the workplace. Originally designed for use in graduate business school curricula, GVV has now moved well beyond that.
Within the field of education, GVV has been used in undergraduate, MBA and executive education programs in business schools around the world.
Other potential educational applications for GVV include elementary and secondary educators and students, as well as parents and the general public. Increasingly, GVV is also being adapted for educational purposes beyond business in fields such as medicine, nursing, engineering, law, accounting, and liberal arts.
