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 and highly interactive 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.

It doesn't matter if you are working alone or in an organization of thousands, this program will give you tools and techniques you can put to use right away to reduce ethics risk.
Although ethics and fun aren t words you normally hear in the same sentence, 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.
