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 China, Europe and South America.
Before you reprint or distribute either of the UBC articles (normally no cost), please request permission by emailing larry[at]this website address, or make your request in the comments section at the bottom of this page.
You can also request generic course materials incorporating Larry’s principles-based approach to ethics education. These can be adapted for your own use, and will soon to be available here as downloads. Sample handouts and participant manuals reflect Larry’s collaborative teaching style, which is based on dialogue and peer-based education – an approach he developed over ten years teaching corporate ethics as an adjunct for the graduate schools of business 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.
