Here’s a description of my most requested program this Fall. Let me help you add another dimension to your ethics training!
Research tells us that this is the first time in American history that we have four generations in the workplace at the same time. There are, then, a number of different challenges, perspectives and beliefs based on the culture in which each grew up.
To better understand each generation’s view of values, ethics and work, is of great importance in order to create a work environment where each generation is valued for their insights, values, experience and wisdom. We will take a look at a number of cultural issues that formed each generation from a value based, ethics perspective. With that knowledge, then, strategies, techniques and insights will be shared to help develop a work environment based on creating an ”ethical framework” by which each and all generations can understand, work with and embrace.
YOU WILL LEARN:
• What are the cultural influences that formed each generation’s view of values and ethics that each brings into the workplace
• Strategies to help develop a common “ethics framework” to their jobs.
• Foster a positive attitude regarding each generation’s journey to where they are now.
• To focus on creating an environment in which the words, “right and wrong” are not “set in stone,” but to focus more on the values and reason, rather than just the behavior.
• Learn definitions of ethics by which all generation can “buy into”, thereby creating a common “ethical foundation.”
Like you, business ethics and ethical leadership expert, Frank Bucaro has seen the challenges and problems of corporate leadership, particularly over the past few years in regards to poor decision-making, SEC violations, and record breaking financial settlements in a number of different industries.
With over two decades of executive training, speaking, writing and with real life experiences, his view and approach to ethics in the workplace is uniquely different. He emphasizes that ethics is a moment-to-moment choice and has little to do with position, titles, personalities or education. Ethics is everybody’s responsibility from the top down.
His goal is to help organizations to:
a. Strengthen their ethics training initiatives in order to significantly decrease the odds of an ethical/compliance violation.
b. Energize, train and motivate employees to understand the value of consistent “high road” behavior as a business advantage.
c. Support individuals and thereby the organization by contributing to its success by quality, ongoing values based leadership development.
Frank is known for his very practical, slightly irreverent, yet somewhat humorous approach to ethics and leadership development. His conversational style and real life stories connect with his audience in a personal, intense and practical level.
Companies such as Bayer Healthcare, BP, ReMax International, EnMax Energy, Danone, etc. have partnered with Frank when they want to proactively stress the message, tools, insights and practical applications that good ethics IS good for business!
