Chris's Keynotes, Seminars, and Workshops
Would you like your meeting attendees to know the essential information about building a better company with better profits, all while building better ethics at the same time? Would you like to help them learn how to effectively and immediately reduce their personal ethics risks as well as those of your company as a whole? Give them a speaker who can provide this critical information while entertaining, educating and motivating all at the same time!
My most requested programs are:
Professional Ethics: A 'Preventive Maintenance' Approach. A hard-hitting yet surprisingly humorous program that will show attendees the ethics risks they never even knew they had as well as what they can do right now to make sure those risks don't turn into costly ethical problems on the job. This program is perfect for everyone from the front lines right up through senior management. This is my most requested keynote and is now also available as a seminar of up to four hours. (This program is available as a 60 -100 minute presentation, a three to four-hour highly interactive seminar or as a 60-100 minute general session program followed by one to three additional hours/concurrent sessions for folks who would like to dig more deeply into the material. The book, "Better Ethics NOW: How To Avoid The Ethics Disaster You Never Saw Coming" is recommended as reading to follow-up this program. Please see the "Store" page for details on this book and feel free to contact me to arrange a significant discount on bulk orders for your attendees.)
Becoming The Company Everyone Can (and Should) Trust. Ultimately your company will live or die based on the degree to which your customers and potential customers trust your ability to persistently, effectively and efficiently keep your focus on your mission and stated values. This program will provide your attendees with the essential ideas and tools necessary to do exactly that. (This program is available as a 45-100 minute presentation, a three to four-hour highly interactive seminar or as a 60-100 minute general session program followed by one to three additional hours/concurrent sessions for folks who would like to dig more deeply into the material.)
Managing Ethics for Maximum Impact. Ethics and compliance can't possibly be assured until your managers know exactly how to promote and reinforce them. This essential 'quick-start' program will give them all the basics they need in a high-impact, highly interactive three-hour program. ("Better Ethics NOW: How To Avoid The Ethics Disaster You Never Saw Coming" is recommended reading to follow-up this program. See above.)
The Incredible Power Of Your Values Statement. At the end of the day, a well-written values statement may affect your business every bit as profoundly as your mission statement. Yet most companies either don't have a values statement or don't have one designed for maximum impact. This high-powered program is designed primarily for management teams and boards and it will take you through the essential steps of creating or improving your values statement. It will then provide key ideas for harnessing the amazing power of a well-constructed values statement for creating business-maximizing initiatives in management, leadership, customer service, and branding. This is a 'must-do' process for companies and yet it is one that is simply overlooked by far too many businesses. (This program is available as a 60-100 minute presentation or as a two to three-hour intensive 'hands-on' workshop.)
Building A Culture of Ethics. 'Tone at the top' is merely a starting place for building a culture of ethics. This 1-2 day intensive workshop will walk your management team straight through the foundation steps of building a top-to-bottom culture of ethics in your company. It doesn't matter where your company is now - this program will help you take it to where it needs to be! Building A Culture of Ethics can be easily combined with customized pre-program assessment packages and after-program coaching and consultation for maximum impact. If your clear goal is a company driven by absolute integrity, this is the program for you. (This program will be highly customized to your specific needs and is available as a half-day, full-day or two-day program.)
