Finding the Ethical Edge Seminar
Canisius College

Are ethical business practices the foundation on which your organization operates?  Could more be done, so everyone who interacts with your employees leaves feeling they were treated fairly?  These and other questions will be answered in a seminar entitled Finding the Ethical Edge, on Wednesday, September 27th from 7:30 am to Noon in the Richard E. Winter Student Center at Canisius College.

This distinctive educational opportunity will provide leaders and decision makers an opportunity to participate in an interactive, skill-building experience designed to strengthen their ethical practices.  The program will be led by Peter DeMarco, President of Priority Thinking, a leadership coaching, organizational consulting and ethics education company.  A unique feature of the event includes pre-seminar reading material, with a survey and a post-event follow-up that reinforces what has been learned.

This seminar is guaranteed to have a strong and lasting impact on your organization.  Please see the enclosed description for a more detailed explanation.  I hope you and key members of your team can attend this unique organizational development opportunity.
