For those who are doing class projects or are just curious, below is a summary of my life and work. I have never made much of a distinction between the personal and professional. (I was lucky to be a partner in a consulting firm where we supported each other in balancing work and family.)
At present I am co-director of the non-profit Future Search Network (FSN), which Sandra Janoff and I founded in 1993 to engage consultants and local leaders in voluntary social change. We have served as unpaid co-directors since. The Network has members on every continent, collaborating to help people improve their lives in the arts, business, communities, education, environment, health care, social services, technology, and other sectors. We have trained more than 3000 people in Future Search and managing large diverse groups–in Africa, Asia, Europe and North America. Sandra and I also manage Future Searches and consult with anyone who wishes to make a difference in their community or company. I intend for this web site to further the work of FSN.
I am an emeritus member of the European Institute for Transnational Studies and a fellow of the World Academy of Productivity Science. Since the 1980’s I have been a resource faculty member in the Organization and Systems Renewal Program, formerly at Antioch University in Seattle and now housed at Seattle University. I also participate as visiting faculty in the doctoral program in Organization Development at Benedictine University, Lisle, IL.
