Workplace Ethics Training Bootcamp: Reduce the Costs and Risks of Unethical Employee Behavior, in three 90-minute sessions, offers comprehensive insight into identifying and handling the stress-filled workplace ethical dilemmas employees face almost on a daily basis. This is a timely wake-up call to recognize employees’ new accountability and culpability in today’s ethical culture and guide them accordingly, in order to both prevent and reduce unethical behavior and the potential costs involved.

  • Session 1, November 2, 2018: The Age of Accountability
  • Session 2, November 9, 2018: Security and Confidentiality Issues
  • Session 3, November 16, 2018: Behavioral Ethics PLUS! Q&A

Ethical cultures have successfully gone “live” in workplaces everywhere and both employees and management have opened the doors of the ethical conversation. Astute supervisors and managers now recognize that the ethical office is a significant competitive advantage and that the Double or Triple Bottom Line (as ethics are sometimes referred to) relates directly to healthy profits. Conversely, unchecked, unethical behavior or practices can result in costly risks and liability for a company.

Employees struggle often with the question: How do I keep my job AND my integrity? And, they cannot pretend their decisions about right and wrong do not matter. They can no longer say, “I did it to keep my job.” We are all the new “corporate conscience keepers.” This series will not only raise your awareness to these issues but, also, provide you with practical advice and guidelines on how to assist your staff in creating and maintaining your company’s safe, ethical culture.


Just a sampling of what this series will cover:

  • Develop a fresh awareness of the meaning of all employees’ accountability and culpability in the workplace today.
  • Internalize the use of their personal Ethical Priority Compass®.
  • Learn how to minimize the factors that can lead to unethical behavior in the workplace.
  • Identify key components to establishing an ethical environment.
  • Adapt crucial guidelines to maintaining The Ethical Workplace.
  • Discover how to better navigate through ethical dilemmas before, during or after they occur, while learning ways to provide leadership to help others do the same.
  • Examine all aspects of harassing behaviors – 1) how to prevent – react – respond to disrespectful behavior - and 2) how to help create and maintain a safe environment.

You will acquire a better understanding of how to help employees navigate their way through an awkward and often potentially damaging situation and do so by also maintaining their integrity and still keeping their jobs, their credibility, and optimism (much less out of court, hot water and harm’s way). Everyone wins.
