Intentional Integrity: How to Drive Integrity into the Culture of Your Company
Tuesday 06/30/2020 02:00 PM - 03:15 PM Add to calendar
| Competencies: Ethical Practice, Global & Cultural Effectiveness

Trust is at an all-time low among employees globally, as leaders of companies are increasingly coming under fire for unethical, even illegal behavior. At the same time, the world needs companies to step up and take on greater responsibilities to solve the big, complex global problems. You can't be successful in the 21st century without leaders that demonstrate integrity and build an environment of trust with their workforce and the communities where they operate. Come hear from Airbnb's former General Counsel and Chief Ethics Officer, and the author of the new book "Intentional Integrity," to hear how Airbnb has taken on these challenges in a unique, human way that has its employees excited and proud of their commitment to integrity. Hear about the things your organization may be doing that probably aren't moving the needle, and what low cost steps you should be implementing this year to send the right messages about your workplace environment. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn the science behind why employees "fudge" and do things in their own self-interest rather than act ethically...and how you can get them on track.
  • How can you "reach" employees in an era of canned video training, form codes of ethics and compliance posters.
  • Learn how to talk with employees, and get them to talk to you, about practical integrity issues that come up in the workplace every day -- alcohol, romantic relationships, hugging, vendor gifts, and using office resources for personal benefit. 
  • How to think about your company's stakeholders -- do you think about, or even care about, stakeholders other than your investors?
