‘Building a Moral Culture’ Webcast

“Set an Ethical Tone: Building a Moral Culture Through Communication” Webcast Offered by Aptima and the Human Capital Institute

Webcast Scheduled for December 1, 2010, 3-4pm ET

Washington, D.C., November 29, 2010 – Aptima, Inc. and The Human Capital Institute (HCI) announced today Steve Motenko, Personal Development and Leadership Coach, of Path Forward, will be the featured speaker during the next “Set an Ethical Tone: Building a Moral Culture Through Communication” webcast.

The presentation is the latest in HCI’s Leading Ethical Organizations learning track which was developed in collaboration with research and training conducted by Aptima. The webcast will explore the impact of ethics on building client relationships, talent management and retention strategies and an organization’s bottom line.

While companies typically have formal policies that denote general ethical behavior across the organization, leaders often differ in how they envision people carrying out ethical standards. Leaders themselves vary in demonstrating behaviors that convey ethical standards, so it’s not surprising that people experience mixed messages. Efforts to create strong norms for ethical behavior across workgroups are most successful when the leader can clearly communicate his or her personal ethical expectations for every member of the team, group, department, or division. This webcast explores how leaders at all levels in your organization can articulate and encourage others to adhere to a common set of ethical standards.

Steve Motenko, PCC, is a Harvard-educated leadership trainer and a certified leadership coach. Co-owner of Path Forward Leadership Development Services, Steve is co-author of “Land On Your Feet, Not On Your Face: A Guide to Building Your Leadership Platform.” Steve has facilitated management training experiences at Boeing, Microsoft, and in government agencies, nonprofits, community organizations, and educational institutions across the country. Through his work with the nonprofit Center for Ethical Leadership, Steve has introduced a values/integrity approach to building ethical cultures in organizations of all types.

Top companies worldwide now recognize that ethical behavior isn’t just a moral and legal obligation of its executives, but rather a way of conducting business that delivers true competitive advantages that shape its culture and impact the bottom line. “Set an Ethical Tone” is the 4th in a series of eight quarterly webcasts to be held in 2010-2011 on “Leading Ethical Organizations,” presented by expert practitioners from top ethical organizations sharing cutting-edge research and organizational best practices for building ethical workplaces.
