Orientation Programs, FYE Programs, Peer Support/Mentoring Training
"Decisions, Decisions: How to Make the Best Possible
Choices About Living, Loving & the Real World"
are all faced with a bewildering range of choices about who to be and
how to act. Not only that but it's not even enough just to figure out
what the right thing is to do. You also need to have specific,
effective, easily implemented strategies for how to make better choices
and stick with your values. This program gives audiences exactly that in
a conversational and interactive sixty to ninty minutes.
Want a team-building experience for your group? This program is also
available as a two to four hour highly-interactive workshop that will
help your attendees work towards developing common goals and shared
strategies for building and maintaining effective, values-driven
decision-making skills both individually and as a group.

"Professional Ethics: A Preventive
Whether preparing your student
government participants or business students for the ethical challenges
facing them today and in the world of work - or as a program for getting
your campus staff or professional association chapter members on the
same page with how to recognize and respond to often overlooked or
ignored ethical and legal challenges on the job - this is the program
This won't be a review of the ethics code, case
studies, or case law! Instead, it will be a unique program designed to
help assure that your attendees are able to more easily 'walk the talk'
of great ethics. This often-humorous program will show attendees ethics
risks they never even knew they had and what can be done right now to
make sure those risks don't turn into costly ethical and legal problems
on the job. They will also learn how even a slightly changed approach to
ethics can significantly build any organization's bottom line. (This
program is available as a 60-90 minute keynote or classroom program as well as also being available as a highly interactive seminar of two to four
hours. In the extended seminar format, attendees can dig far more deeply and broadly into
strategies for building and maintaining cultures of both personal and
great seminar! It gave me a good, original outlook on ethics and
decision-making." - Matt Johnson - student - Bradley University
"Christopher Bauer is is a great presenter! The ideas in this program are simple but their impact is profound." - Rachel Lyday - staff - Pennsylvania State University
"Ethics and Leadership"
It's a given that great ethics are an essential part of great leadership. How are you going to be sure that you fulfill that promise, though, and what can you do to build a culture of ethics among those you are being asked to lead? This program will provide you with a wide range of simple and immediately applicable ideas and tools for assuring that your own ethics are 'leadership quality' and, in the workshop format of this program, you will also learn how to be sure that you are building and maintaining a culture of ethics and values in your organization. (This program is available as a 60-90 minute keynote or as a workshop of anywhere from 2-4 hours.)
Programs for Faculty
For Academic Faculty:
"Building Ethical Reasoning Skills Into Existing Curricula"
of which department you're in or what your course descriptions might
be, every classroom is exploding with opportunities to help students
develop better decision-making skills and to recognize and rise
appropriately to real-world ethical challenges. This
roll-up-your-sleeves interactive workshop is designed to help you
generate ideas for building lessons in ethical reasoning into whatever
else you're teaching. No didactics or theory spoken here - just
exciting, facilitated peer discussion and active exercises to move your
teaching efforts in this area to the next level.
