Frank Bucaro

Trust issues, leadership missteps and ethics problems can threaten any organization, impact market value and cause irreversible damage. Frank C. Bucaro helps leaders and individuals at the best and most admired companies skillfully navigate the high road to success.

His unique career path from the classroom to the board room began a number of years ago when a succession high profile media reports captured his attention. While still an instructor of moral theology, he became increasingly aware that problems relating to unethical practices in the marketplace seemed to be on the increase.

Believing that ethics and values had the power to increase business success rather than impede it, Frank left teaching and formed a business partnership offering keynotes and seminars. The transition to business owner was nearly seamless with the introduction of his first keynote entitled HOW DO YOU SPELL SUCCESS? E-T-H-I-C-S!

Word spread about his entertaining and humorous approach to the serious subject of ethics and soon large and small organizations, Fortune 500 companies and associations in the USA and Canada were contacting Frank about his programs. Participants continue to be inspired by Frank's high content, humorous and practical programs which serve as encouraging reminders of the power of ethics and values-based leadership. His programs are a natural fit with organizations interested in reinforcing their commitment to ethics and values and reducing vulnerability to costly ethics and compliance problems.

He is a business owner and author of the book The Trust Puzzle: How to Keep Your Company on the Ethical High Road. His articles have been published in a variety of industry publications and in ethics and compliance magazines such as Compliance & Ethics Professional, Corporate Compliance INSIGHTS, and ETHISPHERE.

A member of the National Speakers Association, he has earned their designation of CSP which stands for Certified Speaking Professional and he was also presented with NSA's prestigious CPAE Speaker Hall of Fame Award for excellence and professionalism.

The Trust Puzzle

How to Keep Your Company on the Ethical High Road

Trust issues, leadership missteps, and ethics issues can threaten any organization, impact market value and cause irreversible damage. This program focuses on the critical role of ethical behavior for those in leadership positions and will assist leaders, and their organizations navigate the high road to success.

Program highlights:
• The difference between positive and negative ethics and the workplace impact of each

• Moral awareness—a critical dynamic for building company trust

• Leadership virtues that are necessary to keep the company culture values-based and principle driven

• Two factors to consider in making business decisions, and why

• Techniques that are different but compatible when it comes to learning approaches to compliance and ethics

If Good Ethics is Good Business - Then What is the Problem

Does it seem that media reports of companies or individuals being fined, or accusations of unethical or even illegal behavior seem to be just about a daily occurrence? We may also find ourselves asking “how” or “why” ethics problems are still an issue with so many organizations touting their ethical culture.

Most folks would agree that ethical business practices are desirable and good for business. So what is the problem? This program will explore five challenges that can threaten the good name and reputation of any organization and will offer tools to help keep the focus on solid values while continuing to travel the high road to success.

Program highlights:

• The need to understand the difference between compliance and ethics and the impact on the workplace.

• Moral awareness: what it is and how crucial to creating an environment of trust.

• “Shades of gray” ethical thinking: Insights into the need for applied ethics for business clarity.

• The death of bland training: True education only happens when learning links up to people’s behavior. Everything else is bland and of little use.

• The leadership quagmire: What are the ethics issues that stymie leaders and how to resolve them

Taking the High Road
How to Succeed Ethically When Others Bend the Rules

Making the right decision when it comes to ethics might not seem like the most challenging task in the workplace, and most of the time, in the best organizations, making the right decision is automatic. However, the good name and reputation of any organization can be vulnerable to a poor decision made by one leader, a small number of employees or even one rogue employee.This high energy presentation contains easy-to-understand definitions of ethics, guidelines for tackling difficult decisions, practical examples, and a generous sprinkling of humor to illustrate that in the best organizations high road behavior is valued, considered the norm, and contributes to steady growth and profitability.
