Building an Environment of Trust

Trust is the glue of personal relationships and rewarding working relationships as well. The most trusted organizations in business today can be vulnerable to one poor decision made by a single employee. In this presentation Frank explores five elements of ethics training that will help participants understand the key role of trust a) for effective leadership b) for maintaining uninterrupted growth and profitability and c) for building rewarding relationships.

The Five elements:

1. The Power of Values-based Leadership

  • Values as the foundation for solid leadership
  • Three things leaders need to do well 

2. Commitment to "High Road" Behavior

  • Ethics vs. compliance
  • "You can't get there without a map" 

3. Trust and Transparency

  • How transparency relates to trust
  • Negative vs. positive ethics

4. Enhancing the Moral Compass

  • How do leaders use their moral compass?
  • Moral obligations of leaders

5. Reputation Safeguarding

  • The reputation you want
  • What you have to do to get it and keep it

High content, entertaining format, and humorous business ethics cases that will help leaders and the organization maintain and grow a high trust environment!

Good Company: Be the Organization That People Want To Work For, Partner With, Invest In and Buy From!

What is "good company"? What does it mean to be "good company"? It is the organization that people want to associate with — the organization that is successful and strong to the core.

Covered in this presentation:

  • Five reasons to operate a business in an ethical manner.
  • Five virtues for effective and profitable leadership.
  • Three ways to foster an ethical culture.
  • Five tips to help determine the right thing to do in challenging situations. 

Discover how doing the right thing, at the right time, for the right reason is not only wise, it is profitable. Examples, humorous stories, and hands-on ideas for maintaining an ethical culture are the focus of this presentation. 

This program works well for executive level employees and boards of directors.

Taking the High Road: How to Succeed Ethically When Others Bend the Rules

Problems and consequences attributed to poor ethical decisions can arise when ethical behavior is not defined, understood, or demonstrated.

Emphasizing the value of ethics training will help to foster an environment where:

  • Ethical behavior is valued.
  • Ethical behavior is considered the norm.
  • Ethical decisions help to contribute to long-term success.


This program features easy-to-understand definitions of ethics, guidelines for tackling difficult decisions, practical examples, and a generous amount of humor; the result is an upbeat look at a key factor in long-term success. 

Trust Me! Insights into Ethical Leadership

In a business climate where corporate leadership is often under the ethics microscope, leaders are increasingly being challenged to find ways to deepen trust, foster collaboration, and build customer loyalty. This program will help participants gain a clearer understanding of ethics, show how ethics is a key ingredient in business and personal success, and will provide practical ideas to help with difficult decisions.

Topics that will be covered include:

  • Two types of ethics and which will serve you and the organization best.
  • How to identify the "ethics gap."
  • Five virtues that will enhance an ethical and productive workplace.
  • Five key challenges to businesses and how to overcome them.
  • Four points to consider in making the best decision.


This presentation combines timely and useful material with humorous stories for an experience that is informative, practical in application, and entertaining in delivery. 

This program works well when the audience is made up of key leaders and managers.

All programs can be presented as a one-hour keynote or a longer seminar session of 2 to 3 hours.
