    Professional Ethics: A Preventive Maintenance Approach

    SHRM Olympia is proud to present Chris Bauer, Bauer Ethics Seminars.   His program will provide participants with helpful, immediately applicable tools for spotting potential ethics problems both quickly and easily. Attendees will also learn effective skills for dealing with those potential problems when they see them, the essentials of confronting others on ethics concerns, who is most at risk to violate the ethics code and why, how to keep the ethics code clearly in mind in the course of day-to-day decision making, and much more.  


    Christopher Bauer is a clinical psychologist by training with over thirty years of experience as a
    trainer, speaker, author, and consultant. Between coaching, speaking and consulting, he has
    worked with front-line workers to senior executives and everyone in-between. Clients of Dr. Bauer
    have run the gamut from small and medium sized businesses and organizations to every level of
    staff and management at Fortune 500 corporations.

    Dr Bauer’s articles on how to build and maintain great professional ethics have appeared in such
    journals as CEO Refresher, CFO Magazine, and many other print and online media outlets. The
    latest edition of his book, "Better Ethics NOW: How To Avoid The Ethics Disaster You Never Saw Coming” has been a business ethics Top Seller on and he publishes a free “Weekly Ethics Thought” read by thousands of subscribers worldwide.

    Because of his unique contribution to the prevention of ethics problems, Dr. Bauer has been
    recognized with the Certified Fraud Specialist designation by the Association of Certified Fraud

    Dr. Bauer is a professional member of the National Speakers Association and has received their
    Certified Speaking Professional designation.



    Program Information:

    Goal:  Provide Human Resource professionals with immediately applicable ideas and tools to
    recognize often unseen or ignored risks for professional ethics difficulties in themselves as well
    as their colleagues, co-workers, and organizations. The emphasis will be on helping attendees
    learn how to develop and implement strategies to prevent ethics problems before they occur
    rather than – as is more typically done in most organizations – paying the price for catching
    problems after they have already occurred.

    Outcomes:  Participants in this session will be able to:
    1. identify at least four common but often unseen or ignored ‘red flags’ for ethics risks in
    themselves and others.
    2. articulate four areas of departmental and organizational focus required to build and
    maintain a culture that supports ethical behavior
    3. articulate both the strategic and financial value of developing and maintaining effective
    ethics and values training for all employees.
