About Dallin

Dallin Cooper has owned and operated businesses of all sizes for nearly a decade. Teaching the same principles of ethical leadership that led to the success of his own businesses, Dallin is the speaker for any business group, association or organization looking to develop a culture of trust.  Ethics generally gets a reputation of being a boring and stuffy topic. Dallin strives to subvert that reputation by crafting speeches and trainings that don’t feel like “ethics training.”  Instead, audiences will learn about how their actions impact their relationships with others as well as themselves in such a way that they yearn to behave more ethically not because of compliance, but because of the benefit that behavior brings to their lives.

 Typical audiences for Dallin’s presentations range from businesses looking for ethics education to schools or organizations seeking to teach their members how to improve interpersonal relationships.

Get On The Bull

Dallin’s new book, Get On The Bull, explores time-tested leadership principles through the unique lives of professional bull riders. The entertaining stories and examples throughout the book transform well-known concepts like “Honesty” and “Grit” into actionable steps to improve as a leader.

Get On The Bull provides the tools needed to be not just a better leader, but a better person. Those that are familiar with Dallin’s presentations will recognize his unique voice as he brings these one-of-a-kind stories and lessons to life.

Get On The Bull was a great ride! It’s built on a fascinating metaphor that makes this quick read all the more interesting, and makes its lessons all the more accessible. You have something to learn from these insightful and intense stories-and you’re going to enjoy it.”

Presentation Topics

Ethics For Humans: Respect, Trust, Freedom, Peace

Ethics and compliance have a major branding issue. If you have to preface your trainings with the word “mandatory”, you aren’t in a great spot. But that’s exactly how most ethics trainings are introduced. They use fear (you’ll get fined!) or guilt (it’s what a good person should do), in an attempt to change behavior. Those tactics create a sense of obligation, but without any motivation. Ethics For Humans moves the conversation away from lists of unacceptable behavior and cautionary tales about lawsuits. Instead, it’s focused on the benefits of ethics: respect, trust, freedom, and peace. This motivates participants to change behavior not because they’re supposed to, but because they truly want to. It creates a lasting change and ignites a passionate advocacy for ethics in participants that continues long after the presentation ends. And when every employee is an advocate for ethics, compliance practically takes care of itself.

Key Takeaways
  • How culture, ethics, and compliance interact and why we should care in the first place

  • Using ethics to increase sales, productivity, employee retention and more!

  • The transformational power of moral development in our personal and professional lives

Get On The Bull: Developing Attitudes & Behaviors for Successful Leadership

Bull riding is one of the most extreme sports in the world. But each day, leaders face challenges that are just as intimidating as a 1600-pound bovine. Based on Dallin’s book of the same title, Get On The Bull gives leaders of all types, whether they be parents, teachers, or CEOs, the skills they need to lift, inspire, and transform the lives of those they lead. These principles of ethical leadership do much more than just creating better leaders. Those they lead are happier, more productive, and more innovative because they know they have a leader who truly has their best interests at heart.

Key Takeaways
  • How ethical leadership transforms people and shapes cultures

  • Embracing mistakes: Building trust through accountability and transparency

  • Improving communication and morale through consideration

The Morality Matrix: Understanding Ethical Decision Making

We often learn about ethical decision making in a nice little prepackaged “ethical dilemmas”. But unfortunately, real life doesn’t label the difficult moral questions we face everyday as ethical dilemmas so we can apply all those handy decision making skills we learned in our ethics training. It doesn’t matter how good you are at resolving ethical dilemmas if you never even realize there’s a problem that needs solved. While still fun and entertaining, The Morality Matrix is a highly educational presentation that digs deep into providing participants with the hard and soft skills required to habitualize ethical behavior.

Key Takeaways
  • Understanding ethical fading and how it affects our decision making

  • Using the Morality Matrix, and innovative framework to make better decisions

  • Retraining your brain so your biases work for you, not against you

The Trust Vortex

The Trust Vortex is part ethics training, part marketing instruction, and part culture development. Despite technology that constantly connects us, people are getting more and more socially isolated.  If you want a better relationship with someone, you need to trust them more and you need them to trust you more. Unfortunately, people don’t come with a handy Trust-o-Meter that displays trust levels and outlines all the benefits of increased trust, which is why we need The Trust Vortex.

Key Takeaways
  • Four easy to apply principles that will build trust with virtually anyone
  • Shifting Momentum: Rebuilding damaged trust

  • The lasting impact of trust in your organization
