chrisosborne.jpgChris Osborn, the cofounder and principal of ReelTime CLE, an international provider of interactive educational workshops and professional development training programs, will be the keynote speaker at Catawba College’s Thursday, November 9th Community Forum.  This forum, which is free and open to the public, begins at 7:30 p.m. in Tom Smith Auditorium of Ralph W. Ketner Hall on the Catawba campus.

Osborn will speak on the topic of “Ethical Trainwrecks and Other Avoidable Disasters: Practical Steps to Heading Off Misconduct Before It Happens.”  Through viewing and discussing a series of film clips from “Changing Lanes,” the legal film thriller starring Ben Affleck and Samuel L. Jackson, Osborn will help attendees explore the various forces and factors that can affect ethical decision-making.  He will also share some behaviors to avoid that seem always to get employees in trouble, such as: “Don’t falsify company expense reports.  Don’t create fake checking and savings accounts for people who did not order or authorize them. Don’t accept gifts or perks from vendors.  Don’t seduce the attractive young intern.  Don’t vent about specific customers on social media.”
