The Human Side of Ethics: Making Great Choices Not Because We Have to but Because We Want to
Has Your Company Bridged the Gap Between Human Values and Ethics, and Why Does It Matter?
While most other business ethics speakers focus on legal and compliance issues, Chuck uses his personal experience to expose the truth about emotions and ethical behavior. With pinpoint accuracy, he brings to light why we do what we do and how to change behavior. When companies can help their management and employees understand the human side of ethics, the road map to success becomes much easier to follow.
What causes an otherwise intelligent person—a person who knows the difference between right and wrong—to make a choice that will negatively impact themselves and their organization? You’ll find out in this fascinating presentation on human values and ethics. With a unique perspective gained from his own past experience, Chuck sheds new light on why we do what we do and how to influence behavior.
Most business ethics speakers’ presentations and training programs focus on compliance and legal issues—as if ethical choices are either legal or not. The reality is, ethical choices have far more impact on a company long before the issue of “legal or illegal” comes into play. 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.
It’s time to take ethics training in a different direction. No longer is a two-hour compliance speech going to change behavior! Chuck will pull back the curtain to reveal the truth about ethical behavior and how we shape a new direction in ethical leadership.
Expect to leave this presentation with the ability to:
- Understand specific human dynamics when it comes to ethical decisions.
- Identify key components involved in making ethical choices.
- Review the phases of “The Unethical Continuum.”
- Establish a road map to keep employees’ behavior between the ethical lines.

Be The Difference: Recognizing and Preventing Sexual Harassment in the Workplace
Harassment is not a sexy subject and ethics are more than words. “The times they are a changing” and that’s more than just song lyrics – it’s reality in our twenty first century workplace. What was once tolerated (although illegal), is now covered in the media daily and creating more workplace disruption than could have ever been imagined just a few years past. Unethical activity including sexual harassment is front and center in workplace training and needed because of the negative impact that harassment has on both the employer and employee in today’s workplace.
This memorable program will raise awareness regarding harassment and explain the do’s and don’ts of creating a respectful workplace for everyone. North America’s #1 speaker on the subject of ethics takes an inside look at the ethics of harassment issues and how destructive they can be. Chuck’s program educates on “sexual harassment” in the workplace, providing guidance on how to define, recognize and prevent workplace harassment in general.
In addition to the time and expense of a potential complaint, harassment can impact the workplace in a negative manner by causing lower employee morale, increased absenteeism, lower productivity, and decreased commitment to the employer, and decreased motivation. Sexual harassment prevention training may also provide an affirmative defense for employers if a complaint is filed against them.
Program Content Includes:
- What motivates people to participate in harassment?
- How do people recognize harassment in the workplace?
- What can be done to prevent sexual harassment from occurring?
- How to create simple steps to prevent harassment in the workplace
