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 Dr. Mary C. Gentile to create Giving Voice to Values (GVV).
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.
