Giving Voice to Values

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?"

Piloted in over 1,055 schools, companies and other organizations on all seven continents, the Giving Voice to Values curriculum offers practical exercises, cases, modules, scripts and teaching plans for handling a wide range of ethical conflicts in the workplace.

Resources are listed below and available on the Giving Voice to Values: The Book website.

  • What is GVV?

    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 sports, 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. Like runners or weight lifters, they practice what they would say — out loud — building a sort of “ethical muscle memory,” ready to face future ethical dilemmas.

    What might our businesses — and our world — look like if more of us felt empowered and were skillful and practiced enough to voice and act on our values effectively? What if we could learn the skills and tools needed to act on our values in an authentic and results-oriented way? 

    This is exactly the kind of thinking that inspired Darden Professor Mary Gentile to create Giving Voice to Values (GVV), originally launched by the Aspen Institute with the Yale School of Management, housed at Babson College from 2009 to 2016 and now hosted by the UVA Darden School of Business.

    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.

    What Others Say

    “Giving Voice to Values heralds a revolution in ethics education. Gentile isn’t interested in abstract (and often fruitless) debates about ethical principles — rather, she wants to help you practice what to do when you know something is unethical. It’s like a self-defense class for your soul.” 
    —Dan and Chip Heath, authors of Switch and Made to Stick

    “Giving Voice to Values is exactly what we need to help our students take action. Most ethics courses focus on hypothetical decision–making and determining what is the right thing to do. We know that ‘knowing’ does not lead to ‘doing.’ This initiative empowers students to speak through their actions.” 
    —Carolyn Woo, Dean
    Notre Dame Mendoza
    College of Business

    "Mary Gentile has responded to the cries of business and business school critics by shifting our attention from debating right vs. wrong and right vs. right to acting on the questions these dilemmas raise. 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.” 
    —Leonard A. Schlesinger, President
    Babson College

  • Who Uses GVV?

    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.


    To date, GVV has been piloted in hundreds of schools, companies, professional associations and other organizations on all seven continents and has an extensive network of thousands of contacts across the globe. 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.

    GVV has been a featured part of the United Nations Global Compact Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME) programming, and PRME has become a partner supporting GVV curriculum development on anti-corruption, with a 2015 initiative in India that resulted in 10 new GVV-India case studies. A similar region-specific curriculum development initiative in Egypt was sponsored by the ILO and the German University in Cairo. 

    Increasingly, GVV is also being adapted for educational purposes beyond business (in fields such as medicine, nursing, engineering, law, accounting, and liberal arts). The 2013 book, Educating for Values-Driven Leadership: Giving Voice To Values Across the Curriculum , features chapters by a dozen faculty from different disciplines (such as economics, accounting, negotiations, and human resources management) sharing how they use GVV. There are also numerous titles in the Giving Voice To Values Book Collection from Business Expert Press and the forthcoming Giving Voice To Values Book Series from Greenleaf Publishing.

    Corporate Leaders and Practitioners

    GVV has been utilized by many corporate audiences as a stand-alone program and as an integrated part of leadership development or ethics programs. Companies can utilize materials from the extensive GVV curriculum collection, or receive assistance in crafting customized GVV materials for their particular organization (including cases, exercises, slide decks, videos and online programs). Presentations, consultation, executive education programming and train-the-trainer sessions are available.

    What Others Say

    “Mary Gentile’s Giving Voice to Values is a clarion call to the new generation of leaders to put their values in practice in the workplace. Its timely and thoughtful message is precisely what the corporate world needs now."  
    —Bill George, Professor of Management Practice 
    Harvard Business School 
    Former CEO, Medtronic

    "Corporate tragedies are usually the result of dozens of people who sit silently on the sidelines afraid or uncertain of what to do about a transgression. Giving Voice to Values aims to raise corporate behavior to a dramatically higher standard by ensuring that everyone not only can tell right from wrong, but knows what to do in the face of corporate misconduct." 
    —Jeffrey Hollender, author of The Responsibility Revolution and Co-Founder and Executive Chair of Seventh Generation, author of the leading blog on corporate responsibility 

  • Books

     Giving Voice to ValuesInspired by the Giving Voice to Values (GVV) curriculum, Richard M. Waitzer Bicentennial Professor of Ethics Mary Gentile’s book, Giving Voice to Values: How to Speak Your Mind When You Know What’s Right , is another useful tool for exploring these concepts of values-based leadership. Within the book, educator Mary Gentile empowers working professionals with the skills to voice and act on their values and align their professional path with their principles.

    Challenging the assumptions about business ethics at companies and business schools, Professor Gentile argues that often the issue isn’t distinguishing what is right or wrong, but knowing how to act on your values despite opposing pressure. Drawing on actual business experiences as well as social science research, Gentile offers advice, practical exercises and scripts for handling a wide range of ethical dilemmas. Published by Yale University Press - with translations in Chinese and  Korean - Giving Voice to Values is an engaging, innovative and useful guide that is essential reading for anyone in business.

    Another book, Educating for Values-Driven Leadership: Giving Voice to Values Across the Curriculum, features chapters by a dozen faculty from different disciplines such as economics, accounting, negotiations and human resources sharing how they use GVV. The book is a useful guide for faculty from any business discipline on HOW to use the GVV approach in his or her teaching.

    Giving Voice to Values in the Legal ProfessionSimilarly, Professor Gentile's book Giving Voice to Values in the Legal Profession is the first title in the Giving Voice to Values book series from Routledge/Greenleaf Publishing. By providing 12 accessible scenarios drawn from real-life examples, this book walks readers though some of the most common ethical issues they will face in the workplace and how to address them in a manner that is realistic and effective. Proposals are invited. There are also a number of published books in the previous Giving Voice to Values book series from Business Expert Press.

    The second book in the series, Giving Voice to Values in Accounting, is the first book to address ethical dilemmas that accountants face in their operations. The book's authors, Professors Tara Shawver and William Miller, provide guidance to those in the profession on navigating these dilemmas and making the right judgment calls.

    Giving Voice to Values as a Professional PhysicianIn Giving Voice to Values as a Professional Physician, the GVV methodology is applied to assisting medical professionals in navigating everyday challenges they may encounter. In doing so, the book shifts the focus of medical ethics from academic discussion to emphasizing moral actions, guiding the readers through several difficult cases.

    R. Kelly Crace and Robert Louis Crace discuss how neverbefore have the pressures of a comparative and competitive world impacted on our sense of wellbeing, particularly among young adults, in their book Authentic Excellence: Flourishing & Resilience in a Relentless World. Building on the principles of Giving Voice to Values, which honors the complexity and difficulty of leading with our values, this book addresses the unique challenges faced by young adults.

    In the fifth book in the series, Ethics, CSR, and Sustainability (ECSRS) Education in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) Region: Conceptualization, Contextualization, and Empirical Evidence, the authors compile conceptual, contextual, and empirical research that addresses the concepts of CSR, ethics, and sustainability education in the MENA region, with a special emphasis on how educators can bridge to the Giving Voice to Values approach.

    ETHEngaging the Heart in Business: A Revolutionary Market Approach Based on Love will support you in building your business strategy and designing marketing tools (from customer analysis, to the definition of your offer and the style of communication, up to the positioning of prices and the management of resources) in the light of a new model, the Loving Business Model, which aims to make the customer fall in love with you, and you with your work.

    The seventh book in the series, Shaping the Future of Work: A Handbook for Action and a New Social Contract, is a call to action for collaboration and provides a clear roadmap for the roles workers and leaders in business, labor, education, and government must play in building a new social contract for all to prosper.

    In Ethics Training for Managers: Best Practices and Techniques, the authors—four organizational psychologists who specialize in the study of ethical decision making—translate insights on whether employees can be trained to make more ethical decisions based on decades of scientific research.

    In Robert Feldman's book, Professionalism and Values in Law Practice, he presents practical advice to law students and those entering and now working in the legal profession that will help them to reconcile who they are as a person with the demands and opportunities of a legal career.

    Giving Voice to Values in the Boardroom takes the central issues facing board members today and applies the giving voice to values framework while also providing insights from practicing board members who have faced these issues. With this book, readers will also grapple with the conflicts of interest that might arise in the director selection process, role of the nominating committee and the compensation committee in order to cultivate more optimal board dynamics.

    Giving Voice to Values: An Innovation and Impact Agenda shifts attention to the future of GVV and provides thought-pieces from practitioners and leading experts in business ethics and the professions on the possibilities for sustaining its growth and success.

    In Collaborating for Climate Resilience, authors Ann Goodman and Nilda Mesa discuss how supporters of environmental well-being and climate resilience are awakening and mobilizing – cities, states, business, academia, community-based organizations, and the military. They understand the imminent and long-term risks of climate deterioration and they are creating new structures beyond the top-down government policy efforts of the past.

    trjTactics for Racial Justice: Building an Antiracist Organization and Community is not a book of antiracist theory but antiracist tactics - tactics that anyone, of any race, can use to strike a blow against injustice. Antiracism is not about what we feel but what we do, and there are specific techniques we can use to create a just world. This book is available for pre-order and will ship after November 30, 2021.


    New books are added on an ongoing basis and you may find more information at this link.

    What Others Say

    "Mary Gentile documents a fascinating tool to help us to be as ethical as we strive to be. She highlights that rehearsing for ethically challenging situations may allow us to develop a response more in line with our ethical preferences than the knee jerk responses that have led so many to make the wrong choice in important situations. The ideas in the book are clever, original, thoughtful and important." 
    —Max H. Bazerman, Straus Professor
    Harvard Business School

    "In business and in life, we often know what is the right thing to do, but we have trouble implementing it. This book shows how we can all make the right things happen. It is a wonderful guide to help us enter an era of responsibility and of leadership based on values." 
    —Walter Isaacson,CEO
    The Aspen Institute

  • Curriculum


    Giving Voice to Values (GVV) is an innovative approach to values-driven leadership development in business education and the workplace, pioneered by the former Richard M. Waitzer Bicentennial Professor of Ethics, Mary Gentile.

    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.

    Rather than a focus on ethical analysis, the Giving Voice to Values (GVV) curriculum focuses on ethical implementation and asks the question: “What if I were going to act on my values? What would I say and do? How could I be most effective?”

    The Giving Voice to Values (GVV) curriculum, cases, modules, scripts and teaching plans are available on the Darden Business Publishing website.

    MOOC - Ethical Leadership Through Giving Voice to Values

    Since 25 September 2017, the Darden School of Business, in partnership with Coursera, has offered a four-week online course, Ethical Leadership Through Giving Voice to Values. This course offers an introduction to the GVV approach to values-driven leadership development as well as the opportunity to engage in self-assessment, to rehearse GVV scripting and action-planning exercises, and to create a personalized implementation plan.

    The course includes short videos introducing key GVV topics and approaches, as well as video presentations by GVV users from business, the military and academia.

    Audiences for this course include: business practitioners, corporate trainers and leadership/ethics professionals, faculty who wish to find ways to integrate values-related topics into their core curriculum, as well as students and individual learners. Faculty may wish to assign the entire course and/or selected videos and assignments to students in their own classes, as a way to introduce them to the GVV approach before asking them to apply the methodology to cases and topics in their existing syllabi.

    Registration for the course is FREE. However, if learners wish to earn an optional certificate from Coursera, they can do so for $79.

    Registration is available through Coursera. For more information, please feel free to contact [email protected].

    What Others Say

    "This course should be part of the academic curriculum, client on-boarding and employee orientation...I often found myself in situations where I know what is wrong and right but never had right kind of tools or methodology to approach the situation. This course has unlocked those skills and enabled me to take systematic approach in dealing with ethical challenges at the workplace."
    - Coursera Course Review

    "The GVV curriculum promises to be a major step forward in enabling people to deal effectively with the inevitable challenges to their integrity and ethical values – challenges they will face in both their working and personal lives. I am excited by GVV's emphasis on shifting the focus from discussions and debates about what is the 'right' answer to a challenge to one's integrity or one's ethical values to a focus on 'how to act' on one's values in a particular situation. This approach promises major breakthroughs in giving people effective choice in acting on those values. It does so by providing the opportunity to practice handling the discomfort, threats, isolation and embarrassment each person faces in dealing with such situations. I expect this approach to have major impact on individuals' willingness and ability to act effectively in such difficult situations."
