Kotel™️ Ethics Roundtable
weekly
Wednesday, 4-5p EST

Simply stated, a business culture driven by profits at the expense of values is destined to fail. Research shows that companies ranked highest for ethics grow faster than companies that aren’t. Work environments are more pleasant. Employees are more satisfied, engaged, loyal, passionate, and productive. Turnover costs are less. Brand image shines. Cultivating a culture of ethics is the time-tested formula for spectacular success.

A culture of ethics emerges naturally from an ethical mindset. And an ethical mindset is acquired by contemplating ethical dilemmas that defy easy answers. Ultimately, the problem is the solution: by grappling with theoretical problems we train our minds so we are prepared for the real ethical challenges that will inevitably rise up to meet us.

Each week we will confront a different thought question or case study. Through group discussion and discourse, we will develop the ethical mindset that enables us to see the bigger picture, engage in civil debate, and work effectively toward consensus. Raising our ethical awareness ultimately produces a culture where compliance laws take care of themselves and a workforce that feels empowered, appreciated, and invested in a common vision that accelerates success.

The Kotel Business Community (KBC) is a community for collaboration, not a referral network.  KBC members are welcome to refer clients to their fellow members, which is a natural and common form of adding value, however, collaboration is a categorically more powerful method for delivering services.  Collaboration is a form of teaming or partnering where members join forces and resources to solve a client problem based on unique skill sets, which are informed by a common set of KBC ethics and change agent methodology.  The purpose of C4C monthly meetings is to learn about the unique capabilities and serves that are offered by fellow KBC members, to develop collaborative go-to-market plans and strategies, and to continuously improve KBC.  Participation in The Change Agent 101 course is a prerequisite.

Conversations-4-Collaboration Triad

The Change Agent (TCA)
monthly cohorts

Participants will learn the language and logic that describe and explain the origin of chronic human problems that resist conventional methods and interventions, for businesses and individuals. Participants will acquire a fundamental understanding of the paradoxical nature of the human condition in general, free will and ethics in particular, and how to begin applying these skills for diagnosing and solving chronic client problems.

The duration TCA 100 ranges from 10-12 consecutive weeks, one hour per week, depending on the size of the cohort and engagement level of the participants.

TCA 100, 200 and 300 level courses are open to all KBC members.  TCA 400 and 500 level courses are open to KBC members who are candidates for Kotel Change Agent certification.
