College of Management and Technology
Over the past 52 years in the work place, first as an engineering professional (retired), then as faculty in higher education (active), and more recently as a civil court case volunteer mediator (active), I have been guided by the following self-reflective questions.
As a Registered Professional Engineer (1973 - 2015): “How can I best apply my skill at conceptual thinking, scientific inquiry, and collaborative mind-sets to help transform and resolve complex challenges (technical problems) so others can more easily learn the technology and enhance their performance?”
And: "How might I best contribute to the quality and safety of design and construction of facilities that enhance the performance of others in the marketplace?"
As faculty in Higher Education (1997 to date): “How can I best help others (adult students) "learn to learn" at an accelerated level?” And: "How might I collaborate with my academic peers in providing improved quality and value in higher education?"
As volunteer trained practitioner in (non-criminal court case) mediation (2010 to date): "How might I remain neutral in the presence of drama and upset in such a manner that brings peace into the room and allows others to see new possibility for dispute resolution?" And: "How might I collaborate with mediator peers as we strive to advance the field of alternative dispute resolution (ADR)?"
These questions guide how I strive to show up as contribution and service to others. Please feel most welcome to contact me to begin a conversation for possibility and to explore how we might move your projects forward? What is your focus and engagement for positive social change?
