Pikes Peak Chapter September Program

"What Crayons can teach us about ethics."

by Les Kodlick
Brig. Gen., USAF. Ret.
Corporate Communications Consultant
 

Increasingly, the moral compass of companies and organizations is being questioned and the "C Suite" is under fire as they find themselves embroiled in investigations or facing accusations of mismanagement and malfeasance. What keeps some businesses on the right path while others waver? Leadership from the top is paramount, especially when the company's reputation is on the line. The Public Relations professional serves a vital role providing advice and counsel to corporate leaders and quickly communicating the facts, corrective actions, and the way forward to the public. It requires courage, candor, creativity, and conviction. It's called doing what is right... and most of us learned about that when we were young.

Les Kodlick is a corporate communication consultant, motivational speaker and guest lecturer.  Prior to his current position he served as the Director of Public Affairs for the United States Air Force.  Working in the Pentagon, he advised the Secretary of the Air Force, Chief of Staff, senior commanders and staff on public affairs matters.  He was responsible for developing and executing the Air Force’s global, strategic communication enterprise to build understanding and support for the Air Force.  General Kodlick led a headquarters staff of 120 and was responsible for the entire public affairs career field providing guidance and support for 5,500 active duty, Guard and Reserve Airmen and civilians.
