Monday 06/18/2018 04:00 PM - 05:15 PM Add to calendar
1.25 SHRM PDCs | Competencies: Leadership & Navigation, Ethical Practice, Business Acumen | Intended Audience: Midlevel
Workplace Application:
You will learn how to provide effective leadership in a world where one ethical misstep can create disastrous consequences. 

What motivates human behavior? What can you do to prevent an ethical problem before it happens? While your Ethics Code of Conduct might meet all the standards required, the missing piece for most companies is the ability to help management and employees understand the human dynamic associated with conduct management. This session will pull back the curtain to reveal the truth about ethical behavior and how we shape a new direction in ethical leadership. This session will show you:

  • Ways to help managers and employees prevent and mitigate ethical violations.
  • How to engage employees to reframe their concepts of identifying ethical issues and learn ways to dramatically reduce the risk of behaviors that could lead to fines, penalties and imprisonment. 
  • The three key behavioral issues that form the foundation of unethical employee action. 
  • How to build a culture of ethical awareness that motivates employees to act ethically – not because they have to, but because they want to.
