The Agenda: Dr. Gentile describes the origins, approach and available materials in the Giving Voice to Values Collection (GVV). Professors Drumwright and Scully comment on how they incorporated the GVV Curriculum into their MBA and Executive MBA classrooms and how the discussion was received by their students. Their comments are followed by a discussion / Q & A section.
Giving Voice to Values is a research and curriculum development initiative of which Aspen CBE was incubator and, along with the Yale School of Management, a founding partner; GVV is now based at and funded by Babson College. Recognition of the fact that we are all capable of speaking and acting on our values, as well as the fact that we have not always done so, is the empowering and enlightening starting point for GVV.
The "bottom line" of the Giving Voice to Values curriculum is to provide structured opportunities, informed by research, for participants to focus their energy and their intellect on finding ways to implement their values, rather than focusing that same energy and intellect on asking whether their values are actionable.
