This fully online course offers an action-oriented introduction to Giving Voice to Values (or GVV), a new approach to values-driven leadership development in the workplace, in business education, and in life.

GVV is not about persuading people to be more ethical. It 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. Through positive, real-life examples, pre-scripting, rehearsal, and peer coaching, GVV builds the skill, confidence, and likelihood that we will act on our values more often and more successfully. Based on research and practice, with over 1,000 pilots in educational settings and companies on all seven continents, GVV helps answer the questions: “What if I were going to act on my values? What would I say and do? How could I be most effective?” This course was developed at the Darden School of Business at the University of Virginia and has been customised to fit the Australian workplace health and safety environment.

Learning outcomes:

  • You will come away from GVV with an expanded toolkit, as well as practice, in a variety of methods and techniques for voicing and enacting your own values and principles.
  • You will develop and practice leadership skills in "peer coaching” with other learners.
  • Through cases and stories based on recognisable workplace, classroom and life values conflicts, you will apply the GVV techniques and “re-frames”, expanding your repertoire for possible action as well as identifying and rehearsing responses that are likely to be most effective. Through this practice, you will gain greater confidence and competence in voicing and enacting your values effectively.

Suited to: All people with workplace health and safety responsibilities, at all levels of the business.
