Ethics, Tech, and Teams:
Shaping the People & Products that are Shaping the World

Description and Details (click "View Details" on next page):

Ethos* = Retention Growth
Employees. And then Customers.

When it comes to ROI, company culture might be the best investment you can make. But building a great culture is difficult at best. And these days there are all kinds of new, complex ways morale is getting kicked in the gut. Hard.

  • backlash by the general public against a "Silicon Valley mindset"
  • misuse, and illicit use, of products and services
  • harmful, unforeseen effects of technology innovation

These don’t just cost you customers and market share. They cost you employee satisfaction and turnover.

*Ethos is a precursor for cultural norms. It includes things like purpose, values, and relationships.

We do Fitness for Team Health

You need an organizational ethos that yields a robust culture and robust teams. And one that additionally produces products or services that build trust and do right by your customers.

In both cases, it turns out the answer lies in Ethical Theory.* Not the kind of check-boxes, good-bad-right-wrong, esoteric-out-there ethics. But the improve-relationships-and-enhance-outcomes-through-behavior kind.

Ethics can feel daunting. Working with us is simple.

*A lot of great research on this topic. Let us know if you want to talk and get nerdy with us.

Ethos Practice makes Product Progress

Our framework, Etho-design™, builds ethics agility through practices integrated with your existing processes. We partner with you to deliver real ROI:

  1. cultivate better products and teams
  2. prove to the market you care (ie build trust)
  3. and preempt public push back (the right way).

We offer a variety of interactive training options including seminars and workshops. And we are available for coaching and consulting to target specific needs and outcomes.

Ready to explore the next step that’s a right fit? Let's find time to schedule a video call.
