Larry Colero is best known globally for two articles he published on the University of British Columbia’s Centre for Applied Ethics website. A Framework for Universal Principles of Ethics has been used by governments, corporations, institutions, hospitals, post-secondary educators and professional associations across North America as well as in Europe, Russia, Africa, the Philippines and the Middle East.
Larry’s Corporate Integrity Checkup was profiled in Newsweek shortly after the Enron scandal, and his second article on the UBC site, Five Questions Corporate Directors Should Ask was translated and republished in journals across Europe, China and South America.

Generic course materials incorporating his principles-based approach to ethics education can be adapted for your own use (soon to be available here as downloads). These handouts and participant manuals reflect Larry’s teaching style, which promotes peer-based education, an approach he developed over ten years adjunct teaching corporate ethics at the graduate and executive level at both UBC and Simon Fraser University. Larry also taught UBC’s first Strategic Alliances seminar series and was Moderator for the first two years of their Summer Institute in Sustainability.
Larry is the past owner of Crossroads Programs Inc. As a consultant for more than 30 years, he provided advisory, educational and facilitation services for corporate ethics, governance, strategic planning and Project Partnering. Clients included major corporations, governments, institutes and associations across more than twenty distinct sectors of the economy in Canada, the US and the Caribbean.
As a professional facilitator, Larry created his Project Partnering process for the engineering and construction sector, but it has frequently been applied to alliances in general. Sessions are open forums, allowing project team leaders to anticipate problems through accelerated trust, collegiality and a unified vision for early project teams. Project Partnering sessions have been designed and facilitated for Women’s College Hospital (Toronto), Kelowna and Vernon Hospitals, the Sea-to-Sky Highway, the Government of Barbados and six major expansions to the Vancouver Airport.
