“Giving Voice to Values” with Sharon McGann | Monday April 16 at 5.30PM

Have you ever had a workshop participant, say “Yes, but ... I couldn’t say that back at work”?

Many people genuinely believe that if they voice their values at work it will be a “career limiting move”. That belief prevents people – facilitators included – from living our highest values at work.

In this session, Sharon McGann draws on the Giving Voice to Values curriculum* to explore how you can voice your values in the facilitation workspace, or other workplaces.

During the session you will be invited to discuss in small groups times in work situations when you decided not to voice your values and where you tried to voice your values even if you weren’t successful. You will have the opportunity to work confidentially to discuss and practice what you could say and do, which is in alignment with both your values and your personality.

*Giving Voice to Values is an action-oriented pedagogical approach for developing the skills, knowledge and commitment required to implement values-based leadership. Rather than the usual focus on ethical analysis, the GVV curriculum focuses on ethical implementation and asks the question: “What would I say and do if I were going to act on my values?”
