Giving Voice to Values (GVV) is an innovative curriculum for values-driven management and leadership, designed to be integrated across the core business curriculum as well as to stand alone. The new CEO of a hospital goes against the advice of legal counsel to try a new approach to handling a lawsuit filed by the family of a deceased patient. She wants to address the surviving family’s loss in a way that recognizes their loss and honors their resulting needs and that can also help better the practices at the hospital.
