Education

Ethical Conflict Consulting (ECC) educates people about applying practical strategies for success at work.  Our strategies to overcome obstacles at work include professional ethics.  Professional ethics is crucial for decision-making, building trust and working harmoniously.  It orients you toward certain priorities, such as improving relations by offering and making collaborations and reducing risks of conflict at workplaces.

The goal of professional ethics is to increase professionalism at workplaces.  This means increasing levels of safety, efficiency and fairness at work.  ECC offers educational services that allow organizations to raise the frequency and intensity of their levels of safety, efficiency and fairness at workplaces.

We educate individuals.  This requires you to analyze what you know and do not know about yourself and your current situation at work.  We ask you to share with us what your answers are to questions related to all types of work that you do or intend to do in the future.  We will educate you confidentially and offer evidence-based suggestions for taking action, inaction or waiting for timing strategies to increase the probability of success at your workplace or at a place of work you have in mind.

For these goals, we offer questionnaires with automated feedback, allowing you to assess your work conditions and obtain strategies for your work-related situation (e.g., for getting promoted, preparing for a termination agreement to leave your employer professionally and for settling issues with employment contracts).  Email us at info@ethicalconflictconsulting.com for more information.

 

Alternative Education

We know that an alternative education is necessary for humanity at the present moment.  The reasons for this are that schools generally teach values that are nationalistic rather than international.  For example, war is morally blamed on others. Also, the mass media is owned by overly wealthy elites (billionaires and a few other major stockholders) who are overly concerned with protecting their short-term best interests and corporate strongholds.  In America, several corporations get a large portion of their funding from governmental contracts, especially for war-related activities, technologies, goods and services.

Universities have been overrun with administrative workers, public relations spokespeople and other corporate obligations because funding is given and directed toward these means.  Political think tanks are also undermining the abilities for universities to hire people and teach values of sustainability, international collaboration, safety, efficiency and fairness at workplaces.

We consider the ideal university to be one that teaches both life skills for survival, sustainability, conservation and maintenance of resources as well as critical thinking (logic) and research skills with ethics via habitual practice. The ideal university teaches people how to think instead of what to think.  For example, it teaches: If A, then B.  If B, then C.  So, if A, then C.  That is, the arguments it teaches are valid, and the university focuses less on the facts that vary in their importance in order to allow learners and teachers to form their own opinions about the varying levels of priority that certain facts have.

Ideally, the university is a place that is mutually beneficial for the natural environments that surround it.  It should use natural materials with geothermal properties that allow for rooms to be cooled by the earth (e.g., through earth tubes) and from the materials themselves that cool down overnight for summer months and heat up the rooms during the day for winter months.

An ideal university is one where each student can express any idea, whether it is ethical or racist or sexist or ageist or intelligent.  The reason for this is quite simple.  Any racist, ageist or sexist should be able to express the ideas so that others know what he or she thinks and so that the person can then be avoided or shunned and face the consequences for his or her immoral discrimination.  When people discriminate in immoral ways and feel the need to hide their thoughts, others are placed in danger.

The ideal university grants access to all of its library sources and seeks to gain and distribute more via technologies.  This entails students being given electronic libraries with MILLIONS OF BOOKS and articles that are ordered in ways that facilitate research.  Unfortunately, this practice has not been implemented and most universities only grant access to their materials through business organizations that profit immensely from expensive journals and books, although the writings and much of the editing was submitted to them for free.

The ideal university is one that discourages excessive consumerism and materialism and replaces these ideologies with sustainability, cleanliness in nature, conservation and maintenance.  Such a university works toward the production of its own products for its own people, such as food, shelter and clothing with habitual sustainable practices.
