ETHICS WILL SHAPE THE FUTURE OF BUSINESS.

During 30 years of working with clients in Australia and overseas, it has become increasingly clear that strong ethical foundations are critical to high-performing cultures.

Whether you are looking to establish your organisation’s purpose, values and principles as the bedrock of quality decision making, or seeking to understand why day-to-day behaviour is out of line with your aspired culture, The Ethics Centre is a world leader in diagnosing these issues and helping to build leadership capabilities and culture.

Complementing our consulting work are award-winning leadership programs, which include workshops, keynote presentations and webinars. These programs explore issues ranging from the foundations of business ethics and conflicts of interest, through to bias, ethical literacy, leadership, data ethics and more.

OUR SOLUTIONS

EVEREST

The Everest program enables organisations to understand their current culture and identify gaps between their ideal, and what’s lived. It highlights misaligned systems, processes and behaviour, and provides a practical path for improvement.


ETHICS FRAMEWORK DESIGN

Many organisations focus on technical expertise, but forget the underlying competencies that can help them thrive – their purpose, values and principles. This process helps organisations develop or revitalise their ethical compass.


POLICY CALIBRATION

Policy Calibration provides an independent analysis of new or existing policies, codes, procedures and decision making frameworks. The process ensures an organisation's systems support, rather than hamper, their strategic goals.


ETHICS & DECISION MAKING

Ethics & Decision Making is a training workshop to refine your decision making capabilities. Get a practical framework for quality decision making, understand what drives the choices you make and learn to slow down your thinking when facing complex decisions.


EVERYDAY ETHICS FOR FINANCIAL ADVISERS

Our new textbook, a practical guide for financial advisers in ethical decision making, will be released in March 2020. Based on the FASEA Code of Ethics, it supports advisers in obtaining their compulsory new certifications.


ETHI-CALL

Ethi-call is a free, independent helpline available to all. It provides expert and impartial guidance to help people make their way through life’s toughest challenges, when there’s nowhere else to turn. Sessions are a private one-hour call with a trained ethics counsellor.


ETHICS COUNSEL

Ethics Counsel supports professionals who have transgressed at work. It provides a confidential and independent space for reflection, and aids growth by building skills in ethical awareness and capacity for ethical decision making and leadership.


SPEAKER ENGAGEMENTS

If you’re holding an event, writing an article or looking for an expert to speak at your conference or business, The Ethics Centre has a range of experts on hand who are ready to offer their insights on a huge range of issues across ethics, leadership and decision-making.


HOW WE WORK

When providing consulting, leadership or counselling services, our solutions are tailored to your needs. Grounded in 30 years of practice, our work ranges from end-to-end projects to one-off interventions. However, there are four arenas to consider:

  • 01

Current State Culture Assessment

We begin by asking questions about your organisational culture: what issues are you dealing with and what, if anything, is your burning platform? Using our Everest process, we assess the degree to which the culture, systems and processes of your organisation are aligned with your Ethical Framework.

  • 02

Ethics Framework Design or Review

Through Ethics Framework Design, we work with you to elicit or refine your purpose, values and principles. Ethics Frameworks set the basis from which people across an organisation make decisions and from which governance, business systems and culture develop.

  • 03

Leadership Programs

We deliver leadership programs in culture management, and decision making to build capability and drive the desired culture from the board to the front line. We help to unpick the systems and policies that create the conditions forbad decision making; we innovate with clients to create stronger, ethically aligned systems.

  • 04

Future State Design

We work with you to develop a desired future state and map a path to get there. We provide specialist support for ethical decisions. We facilitate a process to navigate complex ethical issues, using our good decisions pathway and your ethical framework.

Let’s discuss what’s possible together.
