This won’t be a review of the ethics code, case studies, or case law! Instead, it will be a unique program designed to help assure that you and your entire organization are able to more easily “walk the talk” of great ethics.
This often-humorous program will show us ethics risks we never even knew we had and what can be done right now to make sure those risks don’t turn into costly ethical and legal problems on the job. You will also learn how even a slightly changed focus on ethics can significantly build your organization’s bottom line.
Ethics and fun aren’t words you normally hear in the same sentence. However, Dr. Christopher Bauer has been making professional ethics both straightforward and fun for international audiences for more than 25 years.
He will present ethics differently than you have probably ever experienced them before. The tone will be conversational and the ideas immediately applicable. You will leave with easy, practical ideas and tools to reduce your risk for ethics difficulties while simultaneously reducing the risk of your colleagues, coworkers and entire organizations.
Ethics, compliance, and accountability share a common skill-set; all are about doing what you say and saying what you do. This is a hard-hitting yet often-humorous program that will show attendees personal and organizational risks to ethics, compliance, and accountability they probably never even knew they had as well as what they can do right now to make sure those risks don’t turn into costly problems on the job.
This program is perfect for everyone from the front lines right up through senior management.
This program is available as a 60 -100 minute presentation, a three to four-hour highly interactive seminar or as a 60-100 minute general session program followed by one to three additional hours/concurrent sessions for folks who would like to dig more deeply into the material. Customized full-day programs are also available.*
The book, “Better Ethics NOW: How To Avoid The Ethics Disaster You Never Saw Coming” is recommended as reading to follow-up this program.
At the end of the day, a well-written values statement may affect your business every bit as profoundly as your mission statement. Why? Because it will guide every aspect of employees’ decision-making and will align their behavior – all day and every day – with your company’s core values.
Yet most companies either don’t have a values statement or don’t have one designed for maximum (or, sometimes, even minimal) impact. This high-powered program is designed primarily for management teams and boards and it will take you through the essential steps of creating or improving your values statement.
It will then provide critical strategies and tactics for harnessing the amazing power of a well-constructed values statement through the do’s and don’ts of effective implementation. Done right, this process will help you drive business-maximizing initiatives in management, leadership, customer service, and branding.
This is a ‘must-do’ process for companies and yet it is one that is simply overlooked by far too many businesses. This program is available as a 60-100 minute presentation or as a two to three-hour intensive ‘hands-on’ workshop.
Ultimately your company’s success will live or die based on the degree to which your customers, potential customers, and referral sources trust you. Yet, creating and maintaining customer trust is easier said than done.
This program will provide your attendees with the essential ideas and tools necessary to both build and maintain the level of customer trust we all know is essential to sustained business success.
This program is available as a 30-100 minute presentation, a three to four-hour highly interactive seminar or as a 30-100 minute general session program followed by one to three additional hours/concurrent sessions for attendees who would like to dig more deeply into the material. Customized full-day programs are also available.
