Description“The unleashed power of the atom has changed everything save our modes of thinking. Thus we drift towards unparalleled catastrophe.”
-Albert Einstein, 1948
The most important obstacle in every international security and humanitarian challenge is the inability to accurately identify all the critical issues undermining the effectiveness of policies, negotiations and strategies.
This shortcoming is the result of insufficient levels of conscious awareness which to one degree or another we are all subject to.
When foreign policymakers and other officials are struggling to resolve their challenges, their insufficient levels of conscious awareness results in [a] vital information bypassed, [b] objectivity diminished, [c] the actions of adversaries or allies are assessed in negative or counter-productive terms, [d] the validity of positive and alternative views are bypassed and [e] negotiations repeatedly fail.
Special Assistants support our ground breaking OIC Foreign Relations Breakthrough Project. The project is a global commitment to advocate that important officials in several governments utilize ontology based group programs. They have been used mostly in the private sector for 45 years. They have an extraordinary track record of consistent success. They can make it possible for officials to produce unprecedented major breakthrough results.
They expand conscious awareness dramatically. This makes it possible for program participants to accurately identify where their efforts are off track, where they have undermined their conflict assessments, why their policies and negotiations fail and all other issues which preclude successful results.
Failures in foreign relations means that millions of people die and are injured needlessly. It means that national, regional or global security are compromised.
Failures in relating with nuclear armed states led by dysfunctional leaders could bring about a global catastrophe. Failures in addressing counter-terrorism challenges today means that these same issues and the mayhem they create continue and spread globally.
Being a Special Assistant is to be part of history in the making! They support our efforts to recommend the use of breakthrough ontology based programs to foreign policymakers, negotiators and related officials worldwide.
