Full day or ½ day Workshops and/or Seminars are available for any of the following topics:
Ethical behavior is essentially "doing the right thing".
- The critical issue is what standards and/or value system determines what is "right" and what is "wrong"
- Ethical standards usually evolve from long standing beliefs within a society concerning right and wrong behavior.
- Religion often plays a major role in establishing those standards for right and wrong.
- Tensions create discord when there is a clash or conflict between one's own personal standards and those of:
the corporate culture, the union,
a co-worker of a different background,
a neighbor, an elected body,
an enacted law or judicial decision,
a religious body, a political body or
the Code of Ethics of a profession.
- The presence of greater diversity in our society requires a careful look at how we ESTABLISH standards for ethical behavior and how we RESOLVE conflict that is exacerbated by different values.
- Conflict is inevitable. It is the handling of the conflict that determines whether the parties' experience will be positive or negative.
- It is important to understand the common causes of conflict, the different types of conflicts and the high costs (in terms of human and financial resources) of conflicts remaining unresolved.
- It is helpful to understand the ways in which individuals or institutions attempt, often unsuccessfully, to handle conflict..
- Effective communication is critical to resolving conflict.
- Depending on the situation, there are definable "steps" that can be followed to resolve conflicts.
- Anger, if uncontrolled, can easily escalate to violence.
- Recognizing the symptoms of anger is critical
- Discovering methods of acknowledging and managing one's own emotions/feelings can lessen stress and improve one's sense of well-being.
- The recent horrific, alleged "random" acts of violence bombarding society are but one consequence of "repressed" anger. Open discussions of anger can lead to greater understanding of this debilitating emotion.
- Prejudice and discrimination, on the basis of race, is a phenomena steeped in the history of the United States of America as well as many other parts of the world.
- Racism can be more effectively discussed and understood in an environment that is free of blame and recriminations.
- The discussion of racism within the context of diversity often helps to overcome the denial that racism still exists.
- The "success" stories of people in communities throughout the USA who have improved race relations can serve as models when there is commitment and good will.
