Grappling with the GrayEngage the Power of Ethical Leadership


Do we really have to​ choose between honesty and success?

Do we really have to​ choose between honesty and success?

Sometimes it feels that way.  But is it true?

With half a trillion dollars in productivity lost every year in the United States because of employee disengagement and workplace conflict, isn't it obvious that our assumptions about success might just be all wrong?

You don't need to reinvent the wheel.  What you do need is to learn the 3000-year-old secrets to build trust, spark initiative, and drive productivity.

The truth is, success depends on creating a culture of ethics — which starts with recognizing the power each of us has to influence our environment:

  • Do we inspire confidence or suspicion?

  • Do we expect as much from ourselves as we expect from others?

  • Do we seek to place blame or find solutions?


Awareness of the impact we have on others enables us to forge healthy relationships, promote productive collaboration, and transform a group of individuals into a cohesive team.


This keynote will provide:

  • A guide to foster a culture of cooperation and engagement

  • A strategy for holding ourselves to a higher standard of personal responsibility

  • Entertaining stories and real world examples of ethical conflicts


The true ROI of Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion: 

Forge Unity Through Ethical Intelligence

Have you ever wondered why opposites attract?  There’s a reason why we dream of exotic places and find fascination in fantasy.  But when the unknown gets too close for comfort, enchantment quickly turns into anxiety.

It doesn’t have to be that way.  The differences between us provide endless opportunities for successful collaboration.  Explore how changing our mindset toward differences can change our fortunes and our future.

Little Tweaks Yield Big Payoffs Through Ethical Communication

We all know that small problems eventually turn into large problems, that benign neglect is rarely benign, and that the more any behavior becomes part of a culture the harder it is to change, no matter how corrosive it may be.

But if little problems grow large, why can’t little fixes turn the tide?  Sometimes all we need is to be reminded to do the things we know we should be doing already.  Practice becomes habit, and good habits are the harbinger of real positive change.
