Interested in a free monthly newsletter focused on city ethics? Use the form to the right to subscribe to "Municipal Ethics Tips and Trends". Each edition will briefly cover one practical 'how to' topic related to building and maintaining better ethics for municipal officials, employees, and contractors or provide commentary on an emerging trend related to local government ethics. The focus will always be on keeping the information practical! (Your email address will never be shared or sold!)
Each week I publish the free "Weekly Ethics Thought" covering the general areas of business and professional ethics as well as values-driven business initiatives. Though it is not focused exclusively on local government ethics, most of the ideas provided can be easily adapted and adopted by those in municipal government. Like to give it a try? Just enter your email address to the right and hit 'submit' to start your free subscription. (Your email address will never be shared or sold!)
Business and professional ethics commentary and links to other online ethics resources can be found by following Christopher Bauer and Bauer Ethics Seminars on Twitter. (Twitter name is "@ethicstweet")
Want a book that will provide the essential basic concepts and tools needed to start building and maintaining great ethics. "Better Ethics NOW: How To Avoid The Ethics Disaster You Never Saw Coming" was written to immediately help improve individuals' and organizations' self-monitoring skills for many types of ethics risk that normally go unseen or unaddressed. It also provides the basics of how to respond to and reduce those risks. As with my keynotes and seminars, "Better Ethics NOW" is intentionally short on theory and loaded, instead, with simple, practical, and immediately applicable ideas and tools.
