Giving Voice to Values: A New Curriculum for Values-Based Leadership

Posted By Mary Gentile, Tuesday, March 09, 2010
Updated: Monday, January 28, 2013

Mary C. GentileGiving Voice To Values curriculum/approach to preparing future values-driven managers is being used in many ways at schools around the globe.

  • Sometimes the foundational exercises and readings are used in Orientation programs, to set the tone and approach for the rest of the curriculum and its emphasis upon practicing ethics.
  • Sometimes the approach is integrated across the whole curriculum in various core courses; GVV lends itself to this approach because the emphasis upon scripting and action planning requires students to use the language of the function under discussion–accounting, marketing, finance, or organizational management, for example–to make their values-based case for a particular decision, instead of using the language of philosophy or ethics.
  • Some schools have used the GVV material as the basis for extra-curricular workshops, or dedicated electives, or executive education programs.
  • GVV also lends itself to peer coaching programs and to partnerships with faculty and/or students who would like to develop GVV style materials for use in their own programs and/or for global distribution.

New materials are added to the collection on an ongoing basis at, so visit regularly. They are all FREE to educators and more information can be found on the website or by contacting me, Mary C. Gentile PhD, Director, Giving Voice To Values, Babson College at:
