Greater Cheyenne Chamber offers Cowboy Ethics

The Greater Cheyenne Chamber of Commerce is offering a half-day Cowboy Ethics workshop for businesses interested in a fresh, common-sense approach to business ethics.

The “Standing Tall in an Upside-Down World” workshop is part of the Wyoming Business Leaders Initiative, a joint program of the University of Wyoming College of Business and the Center for Cowboy Ethics and Leadership. The workshop is being marketed through the Cheyenne Chamber’s association with the Wyoming Chamber Partnership.

The workshop will be held at Little America on Tuesday, May 8 from 10:00 – 2:00 p.m. Class size is limited to 20 so call the Chamber to register as soon as possible. To register, call 638-3388 or visit

The cost is $250 and includes the DVD, The Code of the West: Alive & Well in Wyoming, as well as a certification of completion and lunch. A second employee from the same company will participate at the discounted rate of $175. The Wyoming Department of Workforce Services has grant money available to help defray the cost of this seminar.

“This is the most rewarding project of my career,” said Kent Noble, assistant dean at the UW College of Business. “The initiative took more than a year to develop and includes thought-provoking material as well as a number of professionally produced video segments. The participant feedback we have received has been tremendous.”

The workshop is designed to inspire business owners and managers to serve as principled leaders in their companies, industries, and their communities. Through the workshop, participants will be inspired to live their code each day; find tangible ways to put their principles into action; be a role model for principled leadership and give themselves in community service.

Many Cheyenne business leaders have already participated in the workshop, including Robert Harmon, general manager for the Holiday Inn in Cheyenne. “If we had more people adopt these ideals, the world would be a better place to live and do business,” Harmon explained.

“I thought this was an inspiring course that took many everyday ideals and compacted them within a logical order,” Harmon said. “The course maintained flexibility within the curriculum. If you wanted to change some ideals or add some, they still allowed you to customize the way you wanted to treat others, as long as it maintained the integrity and spirit of the Code.”
