Gov. Andrew Cuomo is Covering-Up Sex Crimes against Children

Gov. Cuomo must be held accountable for covering-up sex crimes and rapes of children with disabilities

Gov. Andrew Cuomo has ensured that almost all sex crimes and rapes of children within his mental health agencies are covered-up

Gov. Cuomo has made sure that most sex crimes within his agencies against children with disabilities disappear internally and are never reported to local police and county elected District Attorney’s.”

— Michael Carey – Civil Rights & Disability Rights Advocate

ALBANY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, June 24, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Governor Cuomo has a distinct history of not protecting children or ensuring children’s equal rights. Gov. Cuomo has made sure that most sex crimes within his agencies against children with disabilities disappear internally and are never reported to local police and county elected District Attorney’s. What is being brought to light is wide-scale obstruction of justice and human rights atrocities of epic proportion.

The Jonathan Carey Foundation which has a mission to help vulnerable children has been exposing Governor Cuomo for years, yet people that he has personally handpicked and appointed are doing everything possible to protect him. Agencies with authority that have the responsibility to protect children from crimes and hold their perpetrators and rapists accountable continue to look the other way.

Governor Cuomo guarantees the cover-ups sex crimes by circumventing the local 911 call systems. Cuomo has directed sexual assaults and rapes of children with disabilities to be reported internally to his totally controlled abuse hotline which was set up to cover-up.

The New York Times Editorial Board called for critical reforms over four and a half years ago, but Governor Cuomo has ignored them and other respected civil rights and disability rights advocates. Keeping reported sexual assaults from being reported to 911 has kept the police out of the picture for Gov. Cuomo and his fraudulent Justice Center to literally cover-up almost all sexual assaults and rapes of children.

Governor Andrew Cuomo’s system is called “a predators dream” by one caught and jailed sexual predator and pedophile that was thankfully ensnared in a federal child porn sting. Stephen DeProspero was a state employee that worked within Cuomo’s State agency that was sexually assaulting the young disabled boy where he worked for an extended period of time. This story will sicken you, but you must read it. Make no mistake about it, this sexual predator and pedophile would still be sexually assaulting children today, if it were not for the feds. Gov. Cuomo's mental health agencies are rampant with sexual abuse as documented in State records obtained through FOIL and are the perfect place for sexual predators and pedophiles. Criminals that prey on our most vulnerable within Cuomo's agencies know they will be protected and shielded from criminal prosecution and that their victims in most cases cannot speak and tell anyone that they are being raped.

https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/crime/2017/02/20/predators-dream-ny-pays-3m-family-molested-boy/98154714/

"The lack of supervision there made it easy to do what I did," DeProspero said in a handwritten affidavit obtained by The Associated Press. "I could have stayed in that house for years and abused him every day without anybody even noticing at all. It was a predator's dream."

Currently, astronomical numbers of children are victims of rape and sexual assaults within Cuomo’s mental health agencies every year. Only a tiny percentage of what is really going on behind closed doors is ever reported according to a very reputable report and study called “Prevalence of Violence” which claims approximately 3% of sexual assaults against the developmentally disabled will ever be reported.

Federal criminal and civil rights investigations have been requested of the US Department of Justice surrounding Governor Andrew Cuomo’s direct involvement for years in covering up massive numbers of sexual assaults and rapes and for violating the civil rights of children. The main motive behind these crimes is a massive Medicaid fraud scheme. The sexual predators that prey on our most vulnerable children are very sick individuals, but those that protect and shield these criminals from prosecution are far worse and far more dangerous.

• Children continue to be preyed on by sexual predators within Cuomo’s mental health care system, hardly any pedophiles are ever held accountable and prosecuted
• Children that were raped by priests are still not being helped because Cuomo has not made children rape victims a top priority
• Children, countless children, that are New York State residents are in extreme danger right now under Governor Cuomo and his administration

The national attention is on children and sexual assaults, yet Gov. Cuomo still has ignored our most vulnerable children’s equal rights and safety. Governor Andrew Cuomo just ensured that the 911 Civil Rights Bill was blocked from passage. The 911 Civil Rights Bill S4736D/A6830C would have ended decades of discrimination against children with disabilities, would have finally provided children swift emergency assistance, would have apprehended sexual predators of children and it would have saved countless children’s lives.

Almost all reported sexual assault and rape cases of children within Governor Andrew Cuomo’s mental health care system are being purposefully kept from local police and county elected District Attorney’s. Governor Cuomo’s fraudulent abuse hotline is protecting sexual predators from criminal prosecution. Extremely vulnerable children with all sorts of different kinds of disabilities are not being protected.

The 911 Civil Rights reform bill would have gotten these sexual assault and rape crimes against children to the rightful authorities, the local police for criminal investigations and to the county elected District Attorney’s for criminal prosecutions. The Larry Nassar’s within Cuomo’s mental health care system that are preying on and victimizing our most vulnerable children would have been finally rooted out, jailed and unable to continue to destroy vulnerable children’s lives. What kind of person protects sexual predators and ignores the safety of vulnerable children?

“I must shout it from the rooftops; children with disabilities are especially in extreme grave danger because Governor Andrew Cuomo refuses to defend and protect them. Vast numbers of sexual assaults and rapes of children with disabilities are occurring every year by known sexual predators within Governor Cuomo’s extremely dangerous mental health care system.” – Michael Carey

The FDA Moves to Restrict Sale of Bayer's Essure® Birth Control Device as Sales Continue to Decline

Essure on Facebook

The FDA is taking this step after becoming aware that some women were not being adequately informed of Essure’s risks before getting the device implanted

The FDA doesn’t provide any remedy whatsoever for the person who was harmed… The only person who can help them is an attorney experienced in dealing with potentially harmful medical devices.”

— Martin Schmidt

SAN DIEGO, CALLIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, June 21, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Sales of Bayer’s permanent birth control device Essure® are down 70 percent in the United States, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Those sales could continue to drop after the agency announced it would restrict sales of the device in the U.S.

The FDA announced in early April it would begin restricting sales of Essure® in the U.S. because women were still getting the potentially dangerous device without being fully informed of its risks.

“The FDA is aware that some women have received the Essure® device without being adequately informed of Essure’s risks,” reads the FDA’s announcement on its website. The regulatory agency said it would restrict sales of Essure® to only those healthcare providers who agreed to review and sign a patient-doctor checklist before implanting the device.

The FDA required Bayer, the maker of Essure®, to provide a patient-doctor checklist in 2016 after thousands of complaints poured into the FDA’s adverse events database regarding potential risks of the contraceptive device.

Risks of Essure® include severe abdominal pain, migration of the device, device breakage, perforation of organs by the device, and unintended pregnancy, among dozens of others.

On April 9, the FDA said only those healthcare providers who provide and sign the checklist will be able to sell Essure®.

“The FDA is taking this step after becoming aware that some women were not being adequately informed of Essure’s risks before getting the device implanted, despite previous significant efforts to educate patients and doctors about the risks associated with this device,” reads a press release issued by the FDA.

These “significant efforts” included implementing the patient-doctor checklist and adding a Black Box Warning—the FDA’s strongest warning short of a device recall—in 2016. The agency also required Bayer conduct post-market studies on Essure® to ensure the device was indeed as safe and effective as the manufacturer claimed.

According to the FDA, there has been about a 70 percent decline in sales of Essure® in the U.S. since the agency ordered the post-market studies and added the black box warning and patient-doctor checklist more than two years ago.

Will these sales decline even further when a new documentary about the unchecked power of the medical device industry and featuring Essure is available for millions of Americans to view this summer?

Attorney Martin Schmidt filed one of the first Essure® lawsuit in the state of California in 2015, spearheading the fight to get Bayer’s permanent birth control device off the market. Schmidt says filing an Essure® lawsuit is the only way to hold Bayer accountable and to help women exposed to Essure’s risks seek justice.

“The FDA doesn’t provide any remedy whatsoever for the person who was harmed by a drug or medical device that failed. The only person who can really help them is a plaintiff attorney who is experienced in dealing with potentially harmful medical devices and drugs,” says Schmidt.

Are PTSD Suicides Connected to Psychiatric Drug Treatment?

The Hidden Enemy: Inside Psychiatry's Covert Agenda

The Hidden Enemy: Inside Psychiatry’s Covert Agenda

CCHR Florida

CCHR Florida

CCHR Florida

CCHR Florida

Eighty percent of war veterans treated for PTSD are given psychiatric drugs and government agencies spend $9 billion a year on their mental health budgets.

Suicidal ideation is a black-box warning on psychiatric drugs given to our veterans. These drugs have never been shown to reduce risk or incidence of suicide. Shouldn’t this information be made known?”

— Diane Stein, President of Citizens Commission on Human Rights of Florida

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, June 21, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — June has been designated PTSD Awareness Month by the National Center for Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The purpose of this designation is to increase awareness of “a mental health problem that may develop after a person has been exposed to … traumatic events.”

Events that may prompt being labeled with PTSD include threats to one’s life such as assault, wartime combat, terrorism, natural or human-made disasters. The listed symptoms include “distressing dreams, persistent thoughts and recurring flashbacks about the traumatic event or events, numbing or avoidance of memories of the trauma and triggered emotional responses.” [1]

But according to some there is a dark side to the PTSD Awareness campaign, that centers on the issue of treatments, and whether some of these are in fact causing more harm than good.

Today, some 80% of veterans labeled with PTSD receive psychotropic drugs; 89% of these are given antidepressants, with 34% treated with antipsychotics – drugs so dangerous many of them are labeled with the strictest warnings issued by the FDA. All told, the Department of Defense and the Veterans Administration collectively spend $9 billion a year on their mental health budgets.[2]

Simultaneously with the drugging of our veterans, twenty American armed force veterans are committing suicide every day. In 2014, more than 7,400 took their own lives. And although military veterans make up only 9 percent of the population, they account for 18 percent of all suicides.[3]

In the past “PTSD” was called “shell shock” or “battle fatigue.” But psychiatric diagnosis has redefined the condition as a “mental disorder”, thus making the sufferers eligible for billable psychiatric drug treatment.

Concurrently, the epidemic of suicides among U.S. military has increased in parallel along with the diagnoses of PTSD and the prescribing of psychiatric drugs, many of which are known to cause suicidal side effects.

The increase of dosing U.S. military veterans with psychiatric drugs is unprecedented. In less than a decade, from 2005 to 2011, The US Department of Defense increased its prescriptions of these pharmaceuticals almost seven times. This equates to thirty times faster than the civilian population. Currently, one in six American service members are on at least one psychiatric drug.

Former US Army Sergeant Joel Kort had this to say about the PTSD-type treatment he received as a soldier, “I didn’t see the emergence of psychiatry in the Army until I suffered my own injury, and then it was like a flood. It was a flood of doctors and it was a flood of meds…. I know that I’ve been on Ambien, Seroquel, Paxil—that was one of the big ones. A very dangerous drug…called Abilify. It kind of puts whatever meds you’re on, on steroids.” [3]

Since 1945, military personnel have been subject to aggressive psychiatric experimentation. Over 73 years ago, psychiatrist and Brigadier General J.R. Rees observed: “The army and the other fighting services form rather unique experimental groups since they are complete communities and it is possible to arrange experiments in a way that would be very difficult in civilian life.”

American soldiers in World War II were subjected to psychiatric experimentation when electroshock, insulin shock and varieties of mind-altering drugs were tried out on psychologically wounded soldiers.

Today the mental “diagnosis” is carried out by a licensed psychiatrist for “a preponderance of the evidence” since there are no medical tests for the condition. The criteria and naming of the disorder is decided by committee vote for inclusion in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, so as to make it an insurable and billable condition.

“In Florida alone, two of our veterans commit suicide every day”, said Diane Stein, President of Citizens Commission on Human Rights of Florida. “Suicidal ideation is a black-box warning on the labels of psychiatric medications given for PTSD to military vets. These medications have never been shown to reduce risk or incidence of suicide – on the contrary. Shouldn’t this information be part of “PTSD Awareness Month?”.[4]

About CCHR: Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. It was L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology, who brought the terror of psychiatric imprisonment to the notice of the world. In March 1969, he said, “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health.’” For more information visit, www.cchrflorida.org

Cuomo Blocked Historic 911 Civil Rights Legislation that would have Protected Children

Governor Andrew Cuomo has failed to protect vulnerable children and women from sexual predators within his agencies

Gov. Andrew Cuomo has ignored the safety and equal rights of vulnerable children and women

What kind of person protects sexual predators and ignores the safety of vulnerable children and women? ”

— Michael Carey – Advocate for people with disabilities and their families

ALBANY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, June 21, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Governor Andrew Cuomo has refused to ensure that children and adults with disabilities finally receive their equal rights, equal protections of laws and equal access to 911 emergency medical and police services. Instead, Governor Cuomo is protecting sexual predators that rape extremely vulnerable children and women.

The national attention is on children and sexual assaults, yet Gov. Cuomo still ignores our most vulnerable and allows the continuation of denying the disabled equal access to 911 medical & police services. The 911 Civil Rights Bill S4736D/A6830C would have ended decades of discrimination, would have finally provided swift emergency assistance, it would have apprehend sexual predators that have escaped justice and it would have saved countless lives.

The New York Times exposed wide-scale systemic rampant abuse and neglect through their “Abused and Used” investigative reporting series and yet the most basic step of mandated reporters being required by law to call 911 has been blocked by Cuomo. Calling 911 and swift local law enforcement involvement is critical to save lives and catch sexual predators.

http://archive.nytimes.com/www.nytimes.com/interactive/nyregion/abused-and-used-series-page.html

Currently, there are thousands of sexual assaults of children and women with disabilities within Cuomo’s mental health agencies every year. Cuomo has directed mandated reporters to report these sex crimes to his State abuse hotline and not to 911. Only a tiny percentage of what is really going on behind closed doors is ever reported according to a very reputable report and study called “Prevalence of Violence” which claims approximately 3% of sexual assaults against the developmentally disabled will ever be reported.

http://www.mass.gov/dppc/abuse-recognize/prevalence-of-violence.html

The critical 911 Civil Rights Bill that Governor Cuomo directly opposed and blocked from becoming law would have dramatically reduced the sexual assault and rape crimes against children and women within his agencies. This vital legislation would have changed everything; sexual predators that are escaping justice currently would have been swiftly rounded up and apprehended, many have been caught previously. Governor Cuomo has failed to lead to protect children and women and he did everything within his power to block 911 for the disabled to protect sexual predators.

On top of these sexual assault crimes, atrocities and the wide-scale obstruction of justice, staff not calling 911 regarding medical emergencies is known to be the number one reason for what are being called “untimely” deaths. In most cases these are criminally negligent and obviously preventable deaths. It is an outrageous injustice what Cuomo has done, as so many children and women with disabilities are victims of sexual assault or rape by caregivers or dying because 911 is not called. Almost all reported sexual assault and rape cases are being kept from local police and county elected District Attorney’s by Cuomo’s abuse hotline and it is the sexual predators that are being protected from criminal prosecution, vulnerable children and women are not being protected.

The 911 Civil Rights reform bill would have gotten these sexual assault and rape crimes to the rightful authorities, the local police for criminal investigations and to the county elected District Attorney’s for criminal prosecutions. The Larry Nassar’s within Cuomo’s mental health care system that are preying on and victimizing our most vulnerable would have been finally rooted out, jailed and unable to continue to destroy vulnerable children and women’s lives. What kind of person protects sexual predators and ignores the safety of vulnerable children and women?

I must shout it from the rooftops; children and women with disabilities especially are in extreme danger and Governor Andrew Cuomo refuses to defend and protect them. Thousands of sexual assaults and rapes are occurring every year by sexual predators within Governor Cuomo’s extremely dangerous mental health care system. – Michael Carey

The New York Times Editorial Board called for critical reforms over four and a half years ago, but Governor Cuomo has ignored them and other respected civil rights and disability rights advocates.

European Historian Dr. Karen Offen Ph.D. to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

WOODSIDE, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, June 21, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — In these remarkable times, the news happens so fast you can't even remember a week ago. In truth, history moves very slowly and always has. Historians relish analyzing change – or continuity – over time.

Dr. Karen Offen Ph.D is a historian and independent scholar, affiliated as a Senior Scholar with the Michelle R. Clayman Institute for Gender Research at Stanford University. Dr. Offen publishes on the history of Modern Europe, more specifically France and its global influence on thought and politics with reference to family, gender, and the relative status of women.

“History, especially comparative history, offers us a superb perspective on the human condition,” says Dr. Offen. “The history of people in other countries gives us the perspective we need to help us reflect on ourselves as Americans.”

As a historian of Europe, Dr. Offen is particularly interested in the history of women because it was neglected for so long. Her two most recent books The Woman Question in France, 1400-1870 and Debating the Woman Question in the French Third Republic, 1870-1920 explore the struggle regarding the place of women in France and their relationship to men over 600 years.

“In the wake of the #MeToo movement, it's amazing to me that the French have been talking about such issues for 600 years, and in print!” says Dr. Offen. “It's essentially about how the relationships between women and men should be restructured. It started out with questions about whether women were inferior, questions about the laws concerning marriage, questions about women’s education. Then came the economic questions. Should women even be in the paid labor force? The right-to-work and equal pay for equal work, reproductive freedom, protests again male misuse of their power and privilege: those ideas are all on the table by the later 19th century.”

Dr. Offen says as she’s gone further in her analysis, the issues get more and more complex, or difficult to resolve. A case in point is that of achieving reproductive freedom; another is sexual harassment. She argues that in order to take apart and restructure the existing gender system, you have to understand its construction. That's where history comes in.

“Mutual respect is very important to this whole discussion,” says Dr. Offen. “Masculinity and femininity have been constructed in relation to one another in a particular culture, but each sex has been defined by very different functions and very different privileges. My sense is that every generation has to revisit the resulting problems of how men and women relate to one another in the context of the particular time and place. The “woman question” doesn't seem to go away.”

It was once believed women's history couldn’t exist because (some said) there were no sources. Dr. Offen and her colleagues have certainly proved that argument wrong. Sources abound; one just has to know how and where to look for them.

“When you study long periods of history, as opposed to five or ten years, you necessarily develop a long view,” says Dr. Offen. “And the long view is actually rather comforting. As concerns the woman question, the countries of Europe and North America have actually seen considerable progress toward sexual equity, despite many setbacks and periods of severe backlash. Studying the woman question provides deep insights into how societies actually work at the most fundamental level.

CUTV News Radio will feature Dr. Karen Offen in an interview with Jim Masters on June 25th at 2pm EDT.

Listen to the show on BlogTalkRadio.

US Congress Considers Human Rights in Sri Lanka – Sri Lanka Monitoring Accountability Panel Submitted a Statement

WASHINTON, DC, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, June 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ —

Today, 20 June 2018, the Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, Global Human Rights, and International Organizations of the US Committee on Foreign Affairs heard evidence on “Human Rights Concerns in Sri Lanka.”

The Sri Lanka Monitoring and Accountability Panel (MAP) submitted a written statement to the Subcommittee to provide information useful to its task. The MAP pointed out to the Subcommittee that:

“The GSL has been proceeding in bad faith with respect to Resolution 30/1. The latest MAP report, dated 7 March 2018, emphasized the GSL’s lack of meaningful progress to date; highlighted the government’s continued obstruction; suggested alternative avenues for redress and accountability; and set out the MAP’s renewed and additional recommendations going forward. The report calls attention to the fact that, while the GSL and international actors have dithered over the implementation of transitional justice mechanisms, serious violations of international law, including torture, have continued in Sri Lanka with impunity."

The MAP made the following recommendations for the US Government:

1. The US should urge the UNHRC to condemn in strident and detailed terms the failure of the GSL to fulfill: (i) its commitments under Resolution 30/1 and (ii) its legal obligations to victims;

2. The US (as well as the United Kingdom, India, and other concerned governments) should dispense with purely rhetorical pressure and exercise available diplomatic and economic pressure on the GSL to comply with its obligations under international law and the UNHRC Resolution;

3. The US should fund investigations into international crimes committed by the GSL and support the use of universal jurisdiction to prosecute them;

4. The US should lobby the UN Security Council to refer Sri Lanka to the International Criminal Court;

5. The US should provide funding only for non-military uses in Sri Lanka including social justice projects, health related projects, medical and psychosocial support for victims of international crimes.”

***

The MAP provides independent monitoring, advice, and recommendations, focusing on the effectiveness of accountability measures from a victims’ perspective. The views and recommendations of the Panel will enable victims and other stakeholders to participate more effectively in the process and thus enhance the legitimacy of the measures.

Citizens Commission on Human Rights Fights Baker Act Abuses in Florida

Averaging almost 80 calls a month from people whose friend or loved one has been Baker Acted, CCHR finds all too often the victim did not meet the criteria.

In the 2015/16 annual period, over 194,000 people were Baker Acted, of which over 32,000 were children. These figures have more than doubled since 2001.”

— Diane Stein, President CCHR Florida

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, June 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — “Every day in Florida someone is held for involuntary psychiatric examination (Baker Act) for the scantiest of reasons.” This is according to Stephen A. Talmadge, PhD and a Diplomate of the American Board of Forensic Psychology.

The Baker Act mental health law allows Florida citizens, including children, to be sent against their will for involuntary examination at psychiatric wards known as Baker Act Receiving Facilities and held for up to 72 hours during which time, they may be drugged without their consent if ordered. [1]

In the 2015/16 annual period, over 194,000 people were Baker Acted, of which over 32,000 were children. These figures have more than doubled since 2001.
Furthermore, according to this Act, the Receiving Facility may apply to hold a patient for much longer than 72 hours and bill Medicaid for doing so. [1]

Hospitalizations of children are sometimes used as stop-gaps for school systems or parents unable to care for difficult children. [2]

In 2017 the Florida chapter of the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) helped secure the safe release of nearly 300 people being unjustly held for involuntary psychiatric examination.

CCHR is a non-profit mental health watchdog organization established in 1969 jointly by the Church of Scientology and noted psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz to expose and eliminate human rights abuses in the field of mental health.

CCHR maintains a hotline for Baker Act abuses and has helped large numbers of people secure release when unjustly restrained under the Act. An article on Baker Act violations has prompted a stream of intermittent responses over a 5-year period. One such entry stated“I’m covered in bruises, was given multiple injections without my consent, and all of this to be told that ”actually, you don’t fit the criteria to be Baker Acted; we’re releasing you”. [3]

“Our Psychiatric Abuse Hotline averages almost 80 calls a month from people calling about a friend or loved one who has been Baker Acted and unfortunately all too often the victim did not meet the criteria under the law and should not have been taken into custody and sent to a psychiatric facility,” said Diane Stein, President of CCHR Florida.

CCHR Florida Hotline help is available at (727) 442-8820.

About CCHR: CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. It was L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology, who brought the terror of psychiatric imprisonment to the notice of the world. In March 1969, he said, “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health.’” For more information visit, www.cchrflorida.org

Dr. Richard N. Knowles PhD of Nagele, Knowles & Associates to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

ST. PETERSBURG, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, June 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Our work experience affects our home life. Our home life affects our work. But when a workplace becomes a hostile environment, people can't be the best they can be, the organization cannot grow, and in some unfortunate cases, an incident of workplace violence may occur.

Dr. Richard N. Knowles PhD is co-founder of Nagele, Knowles & Associates, a consulting firm specializing in the full-spectrum of workplace violence.

“Workplace violence manifests in several ways. It can be psychological where somebody's being bullied or disrespected, which can snowball over time to somebody coming in with a gun,” says Dr. Knowles. “Our focus is to bring all the skills that we have in leadership, safety, HR to help the people in organizations learn how to be respectful. It is so critically important, not only for productivity, but for the people to become the best they can be.”

Because people often feel quite isolated in organizations, they tend to create turfs and cliques with insiders and outsiders. According to Dr. Knowles, it all begins with a lack of respect. Dr. Knowles and his associates utilize a propriety tool that helps people to engage in focused, disciplined conversations to identify the problems, solve them, and build the connections they need with other people.

“If they decide to work together to build trust and interdependence, tremendous energy and creativity are released,” says Dr. Knowles. “It can all happen quite quickly, in a day. Then we teach them how to sustain it.”

According to Dr. Knowles it all begins with the critical role of leaders. Leaders need to promote a culture that encourages people to speak openly and honestly about problems.

“Leaders must have a fundamental belief that people are trying to do the best they can,” says Dr. Knowles. “Everybody is trying to get a good day's work in; we need to work together. When we can do that, new possibilities become available. People begin to have the courage to step in and make the differences.”

When that happens, says Dr. Knowles, people within the organization become "leaderful.” When somebody sees something that needs to be done, they step forward and take initiative.”

Nagele, Knowles & Associates are generally brought in when a leader recognizes that their workplace is not working well, has become a hostile environment and wants to do something to rectify that—an intervention is needed. They also can be brought in following an incident of workplace violence. It might be some kind of newspaper article about sexual harassment or a bullying case or even a murder.

“These are tough things for businesses to deal with. Everyone loses. But if we can bring people together to work in a way that builds interdependence and trust, the people get much better. All it costs is for leaders to get out of the offices and connect with their people. That's where the effort is needed.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Dr. Richard N. Knowles in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on June 22nd at 10am EDT and with Jim Masters on June 29th at 10am EDT.
