Randy Noe will discuss his personal journey navigating serious ethical breaches in the leadership of publicly traded companies and the consequences that followed for key stakeholders. He will address the conditions leading up to these crossroads, and the ethical dilemmas involved. His compelling story will take you through decisions made using only a moral compass while being faced with extreme corporate pressures. Almost 10 years removed from these events, Noe will share his insights regarding the significance of performing under extreme and unique factors in the business world.

You will hear:

  • What conditions create the climate where breaches of loyalty, trust, and ethical dilemmas occur
  • What to do when your own core values collide, or clearly separate from management
  • How to summon strength and courage to stand firm and make decisions under urgency, extreme pressure and duress
  • What it means to live with the consequences of your decisions and actions
  • How to recognize the opportunity for awakening transformational growth
  • How to help others equip and strengthen themselves to navigate and process similar circumstances
