Developing "people skills" in managers has always been my forte. The majority of my clients were promoted to their positions because of their technical skills not their business or people skills. Over the years I have worked with many individuals and teams to maximize their contributions to the organization.
My work with organizations in Canada, the Far East and Europe encompasses a wide variety from the private for-profit sector to a variety of governmental environments including: federal, state and local governments; military; educational; health; religious; and not-for-profit organizations. At least 50% of my clients are from technical, scientific and/or research organizations.
I hold a Ph.D. in Organizational Behavior from Case Western Reserve University, M.A. from Bryn Mawr College in Comparative and Physiological Psychology and B.A. from Heidelberg College in Psychology and History. I am a member of the National Training Laboratories (NTL), the American Psychological Association, was a charter member of the Organizational Development Network and am on the Board of Directors of the Center for Youth as Resources.
My ability to coach, design strategic interventions, and deal with conflict, both personal and organizational are clearly my strengths. I use these skills in my consulting practice and have taught these same skills in courses at the University of Colorado, York University, American University, Antioch's Graduate Program and numerous training sessions.
I work hard and I play hard. I am an avid runner having completed several marathons. I have been downhill skier for 41 years and use to teach handicapped first and second graders to ski in Aspen. I enjoy racquetball, scuba diving and tennis. However, my real passion is watching the sunset over the ocean in San Diego with my wife.
