Ethical Intelligence Workshop & Holiday Luncheon
Location: Four Points by Sheraton, Navigator Room, 1496 Hollis Street, Halifax
09:00h - 13:00h

Ethical Intelligence and the ANTE-up Methodology for Changing Corporate Culture and Annual Holiday Luncheon

 

No matter how much it is talked about and regulated, ethical collapses continue to plague organizations across all sectors. Culture is the DNA of every organization and changing is hard. It's doubly challenging when the organization and its people lack a sense of ethical intelligence.

Throughout this ½ day workshop, you will learn how to think differently about ethical dilemmas using ethical intelligence. Understanding ethics is not complex, but practicing it in all we do is the challenge. Ethical decay happens almost subconsciously and left untended can lead to perilous situations involving fraud, reputational loss, and personal embarrassment. You will explore ethics from both the perspective that good ethics protects and safeguards, but more importantly how ethical intelligence leads to better managed businesses.

Finally, you will move beyond personal ethics to how ethical intelligence can be embedded in organizational culture. We will look at cases throughout the course that illustrate ethics at a personal and organizational level. A culture that is based on Authentic leadership, Nimble workforce, Transparent information, and Ethical conduct. It's time to ANTE-up!

Workshop Leader: Blair Cook, CPA, CA CPA (III) MBA (see bio below)

Who Should Attend: All financial and non-financial professionals can benefit from a higher level of ethical intelligence. FMI sessions are open to all interested parties, both public and private sector.

NOTE: This session will qualify for 3 CPD Hours of ethical requirements for CPAs.

Topics Ouline:

  • Identify the signs of a toxic corporate culture and identify ethical dilemmas
  • The principles that guide our ethical mindset, also referred to as Ethical Intelligence
  • Work through the ANTE-up features of culture to reinvigorate culture and ethical behavior
  • Develop a step-by-step approach for changing your corporate culture
  • Answer the question of whether the ethical enterprise can become a point of competitive advantange
