Consulting and Mentoring
The best way to implement improvements
at your facility/classroom(s) may be to hire a consultant.
Rather than provide a formal workshop or
class on ethics, a consultant studies your system, observes, listens to
constituents, analyzes data and makes recommendations for improving the ethical
integrity of your institution. The consultant helps you plan and implement your
goals and objectives.
Key pieces of consulting are as follows:
1) information intake and analysis
leading to recommendations
2) helping constituents buy into the
3) serving as facilitator when glitches
or roadblocks develop
4) conducting an assessment of the
effectiveness of implementation
The Character Development Foundation

character-building classroom, as well as administrators of schools, colleges,
places of business and programs.

professionals in the area of ethics, the Character Development Foundation

The client and consultant meet and write
a contract specifying the tasks and timeline. The Character Development
Foundation houses the contract and sees that the obligations are met.
