Organizational cultures, whether governmental, corporate,
professional or educational, are prone to confronting
their employees, at all levels, with ethical quandaries
and moral dilemmas.
Philosophical practitioners apply pro-active methods
to addressing moral issues in organizations, in real time.
Background on Dilemma Training
One such method was developed by Professor Henk van Luijk
at Nijenrode University (the “Harvard Business School”
of Holland), as part of a more extensive program involving
integrity issues in organizations, in cooperation with
the European Institute for Business Ethics.
Henk van Liujk and his group of trained philosophical
consultants have applied this method very successfully
in numerous private companies, professional associations
and government organizations in the Netherlands.
Subsequently, well-known Dutch practitioner and APPA Faculty
member Ida Jongsma has applied this method with success
across a similar spectrum of client organizations in Holland
and throughout Europe. Ida has trained a number of APPA-Certified
consultants in this method.
Lou Marinoff learned the Dutch method from Ida, and has
adapted it successfully to a similar variety of client
organizations world-wide, from the US to Europe, from
Latin America to South East Asia.
The Dilemma Training Program
The Program consists of two full days (9:00 a.m. to 6:00
p.m.), during which both the method and guidelines for
