Recognizing Often-Overlooked 'Red Flags' For Ethics, Compliance, And Accountability Problems

A One Hour Course In Applied Behavioral Ethics | taught by Christopher Bauer, PhD, CSP, CFS

Course description

We all like to think that we're well-attuned to risks for ethics, compliance, and accountability problems. Yet, there is a whole world of frequently overlooked or ignored red flags for problems that are actually ''hiding in plain sight' right in front of us. Start being able to see them!

This brief course will stick with simple and immediately-applicable ideas and tools you can use to recognize more of those risks right away.

What you will learn:

  • Three ways to re-think how you think about ethics that will help you spot more ethics risk.
  • Four areas on which you and your organization need to focus if you want to do a better job of assuring a culture of ethics, compliance, and accountability.
  • Six easily-spotted red flags for ethics problems that you and your organization are probably missing but can't afford to overlook or ignore.


There are no prerequisites for this course. It is suitable for all levels of experience.

The format is video segments with written study questions following each module. There is a test at the end of the last learning module which is required only if you would like a certificate of completion of this one-hour course.

Dr. Bauer’s ethics courses are very insightful and thought provoking, with takeaways I can immediately apply on the job. With the convenience of this web based curriculum, I can learn at my own pace and no longer have to wait for him to schedule classroom training in my locale.

Highly-effective Ethics Training

by Robert Eitel
Chris Bauer presents ethics training in a highly-effective manner that gets right to the heart of the subject matter and gives students the tools to not only to understand ethics but how to apply solid principals to everyday issues. The training heightened and sharpened my awareness of common key phrases that may be an early indication of problems that have not been brought to light. This is one of the best training courses I've taken over the course of my career. I highly recommend it!

This course was easy to understand. I enjoyed the easy way the lists were shared. If you are even a little interested in ethics, this is a great course to take and for every level of person in your organization. Brenda Southam, CAE Executive Officer Real Estate Institute of BC

Excellent course!

by Daniel Smith
Excellent course! This course was simple, but got straight to the point. I am a big fan of classes that cut out the fluff and discuss the issues. The pace of the course was great - not so fast that points were missed and not so slow as to put the listener to sleep. The interim review questions and the final exam questions were clear with straight-up answers that did not require reading between the lines or interpretation. I enjoyed taking this course.

Excellent Content - Highly Recommended

by Marina Mueller
**** Content is excellent. Instructor very knowledgeable, and clearly communicates material. While I'd like to see addition of graphics to emphasize points, which is my only reason for giving the course four stars instead of five, the material is superior. I highly recommend.
