How To Use Serendipity To Perform Due Diligence Checks On Your Company’s Ethics and Compliance Program

  • Virtual PresentationKeynote PresentationWorkshop SessionHalf Day TrainingFull Day Training
  • According to Men, Women and Ethical Leadership: Gender’s Influence on Tone at the Top (the National Business Ethics Survey, NBES), the level of distrust by gender is not the same. More females than males don’t report misconduct because they sense a lack of faith or trust in the system or practices within their company.

    If an employee told you “I don’t trust you”, where would you even begin? What if this distrust in you wasn’t personal? Whether or not it was, would you want to know this? It would seem easier to brush this off. “If they have a problem, they’ll raise it with me.” — Except it’s not guaranteed.

    The truth shall set you free. That journey begins with self-trust. This highly interactive presentation teaches you how to face trust and compliance issues in enlightening and effective ways using the Eagle Soaring Consciousness Tool. It includes an exercise about your relationship with trust.

    You also learn the four-step process for leveraging serendipity to perform due diligence checks on that trust and your company’s Ethics and Compliance (E&C) program. By applying this process and your Eagle Soaring Strengths to communication, you and your employees will consistently rise to action… for the greater good. Improving the tone at the top will improve workplace trust and the ethics environment for both genders: both inside and outside of the company. Ultimately this’ll serve the company’s Employee Value Proposition (EVP) and profitability.

    Why not give the gift of trust — today!

Testimonials

When I first heard Monique MacKinnon deliver a keynote at the Global Innovation Summit 2016 in Dubai on How to Negotiate and Innovate on the Fly in the VUCA World, I couldn’t help but listen to her till the end. Monique spoke about negotiation tactics, using psychology as a tool to understand people and their actions. She shared real-life examples to help us relate to a situation and the steps she took to ensure that the person could emerge as envisioned. A wonderful speaker, her story-telling approach simplified the subject and stressed on the importance and application of negotiation and innovation in very practical terms.

Auritri Chatterjee, Dubai, UAE

Monique MacKinnon’s style leans toward the offbeat and unconventional. I love it as it generates a different type of interest. Rather than recite ethical codes, you go beyond that to an everyday approach that we need to go back to our natural inner feelings of right and wrong. In doing so, you initiated a lot of humour to lighten up and search for the correct ethical choice.

When I attended Monique MacKinnon’s Ethics in Action session at ICPAS Summit19, I didn’t expect to hear about ethics as it relates to Forensic Accountants and Fraud Examiners. I also walked away with a bonus: a new skill and deepened subject matter expertise about how to prevent, detect, and solve accounting fraud. Monique MacKinnon talked about the Cue Ball Method. It was DEJA VU on Fraud Examination and Forensic Accounting. Evidence-based investigation resonates with my understanding of, training and proven experience as a bank analyst/forensic accountant in search of the truth. It’s about submitting to the power of facts. Monique MacKinnon’s Cue Ball Method shows us...

What I took away from How to persuasively speak UP to higher-ups was a confirmation to making sure to express confidence during those tough conversations. I also think that confidence needs to be balanced with humility by evaluating the “higher up”. Just because they are in a senior position does not mean they are at the same emotional level or capacity you may be at.
