Christopher Bauer Topic Presentations

professional ethics - a preventive maintenance approach

  • Keynote Presentation
  • 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 ethical 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 a slightly changed focus on ethics can significantly build your organization’s bottom line.

    Ethics and fun aren’t words you usually hear in the same sentence. However, 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 will be immediately applicable.

    You will leave with easy, practical ideas and tools to reduce your risk for ethics difficulties while simultaneously reducing the risk to your colleagues, coworkers, and the entire organization.

creating a culture of ethics, compliance, and accountability

  • Keynote Presentation
  • 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 line to senior management. This program is available as a 60 -100 minute presentation, a three- to four-hour highly interactive seminar, or 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 a reading to follow up on this program.

unleashing the incredible power of your values statement

  • Keynote Presentation
  • 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 behaviour – 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.

becoming the employee/department/company your customers will (and should!) always trust

  • Keynote Presentation
  • 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.

Chris Bauer ideas … were practical and thought-provoking, and he made his points with humour, authority, and great energy. Our …leaders came away with substantive ideas on preventing ethics issues from becoming a problem in the workplace. His humour and substance are able to turn a potentially dull subject into a great learning experience.

Leonard Rice Engineers, Inc. has hired Chris twice in the last 5 years, not because we are slow learners but because as our staff evolves we need to continually reinforce our training in ethical practices. Chris makes a potentially boring subject fun and tailored his exercises to include real-life examples of exactly the sorts of challenges our staff face.
