Topic: Professional Ethics: A Preventive Maintenance Approach

Details: The goal of this presentation is to provide HR professionals with immediately applicable ideas and tools to recognize often costly but often unseen or ignored risks for professional ethics difficulties in themselves as well as their colleagues, co-workers, and organizations. The emphasis will be on helping attendees learn how to develop and implement strategies to prevent ethics problems before they occur rather than – as is more typically done in most organizations – paying the steep price for catching problems after they have already occurred.

Outcomes: Participants in this session will be able to:

  1. Identify at least four common but often unseen or ignored ‘red flags’ for ethics risks in themselves, others, and their organizations.
  2. Identify a minimum of two previously unseen personal risk factors for ethics problems and be capable of more effectively monitoring for further ethics risks over time.
  3. Articulate the practical, financial, and strategic value of effective ethics and values training for their organizations.

Presenter: Dr. Christopher Bauer

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 better able to recognize often over-looked or ignored ethics risks before they have the chance to turn into big and costly problems.

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 30 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 your entire organization.

Dr. Bauer publishes a “Weekly Ethics Thought” which is available at no charge through his website ( and the latest of his book, “Better Ethics NOW: How to Avoid the Ethics Disaster You Never Saw Coming” has been a business ethics “Top Seller” on
