Bruce Weinstein - The Ethics Speaker

Bruce Weinstein - The Ethics Speaker

Enlightening, inspiring and entertaining, Dr. Bruce Weinstein, The Ethics Guy, shows leaders in business, health care, law, accounting, and education why character is the missing link to excellence and how to hire and promote people of high character. 

He writes an online column for Fortune twice a week and is the author of the books Ethical Intelligence: Five Principles for Untangling Your Toughest Problems at Work and Beyond, and Is It Still Cheating If I Don’t Get Caught?  

His latest book, The Good Ones: Ten Crucial Qualities of High-Character Employees, reveals how employers can find good people to work for them and why character is the missing link to excellence.  It also shows job candidates how to excel in their interviews by using a novel strategy: explaining how their high character has consistently delivered strong results.

An in-demand speaker, Dr. Weinstein’s clients have included the Montana Society of Certified Public Accountants (two years in a row), National Football League, the Investment Management Consultants Association, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, American Society of Pension Professionals and Actuaries, Northrop Grumman, the National Business Aviation Association, the colleges of business of Eastern Michigan University and the University of North Dakota, and over 300 other leading groups.

You have seen Dr. Weinstein on NBC's Today Show, ABC's Good Morning America, a wide range of CNN programs, Fox News Channel's O'Reilly Factor and Fox and Friends, Fox Business Network's Cavuto, MSNBC Live, and CNBC's Fast Money.

His work has been featured in USA Today, the New York Times, and American Airlines’ in-flight magazine.  He received a bachelor's degree in philosophy from Swarthmore College, a PhD in philosophy and bioethics from Georgetown University, and a National Fellowship in Leadership Development from the W. K. Kellogg Foundation in Battle Creek, Michigan.   

He lives in New York City with his wife, Kristen Bancroft.

Help your members learn how to hire & promote high-character people!

Keynote #3

ETHICAL INTELLIGENCE: 5 Principles for Making the Right Decisions Every Time


You wake up one morning with the flu.  Would you go to work or stay home and rest?

Jane, an employee of yours, has a terrible work ethic.  You’ve talked with her several times, but the problem continues.  Last month you fired another employee who slacked off on the job, but Jane is the daughter of a friend of yours.  Would you fire Jane? Give her one more chance?  Talk with your friend?

A colleague is driving you to lunch and begins checking his smartphone while you’re at a stop light.  The light changes to green, and your friend continues to read his phone but begins driving.  Would you say something or mind your own business?

You're at a restaurant, and the service isn't very good.  When the bill arrives, you discover that an item you had is not listed. Would you tell the waiter or keep it to yourself?

We often find ourselves asking, "What's the right thing to do in this situation?," but when the stakes are high, our emotions can get in the way of thinking clearly and making the best choices.  In this lively, fun and practical session, Dr. Bruce Weinstein, The Ethics Guy, shows you how five simple principles provide a framework for solving the above problems and many others that come your way.

The good news is that the principles that help you make the right decisions at work are the same principles that apply in your personal life, too.

Dr. Weinstein begins the presentation with a “What would you do?” quiz that is tailored to the needs of your group.  He then presents the five principles of ethical intelligence, and one-on-one exercises show the group how to apply these principles in their daily lives.  He concludes by revisiting the quiz and demonstrating how the five principles reveal which solutions are best.

A simple but powerful call to action gives every member of the audience the chance to put the principles into practice right way.

You've seen Dr. Weinstein on The Today Show, Good Morning America, Fox News, Fox Business, CNN, and CNBC.  Now your members can attend his engaging and inspirational presentation!  Who knew ethics could be so much fun?
