Profile Information

Please tell us a little about yourself and/or your area of adult learning practice/interests.
After 15 years as a mechanical engineer in the aerospace industry, I ventured into contract training and consulting. That was almost 20 years ago, yikes! I have trained and master trained in 15 countries and a wide variety of industries. My portfolio is broad and expertise slim, which may be an asset these days of innovation where we are all looking at new ways to "rearrange our puzzle pieces."

Three areas of particular interest to me are leadership, project management and innovation/inventing. I am constantly drawn to HBR and the exploration of leading others and leading yourself; I admire those who can inspire well, serve those they lead and draw them to volunteer their best to move a vision into reality. I see how important leadership is in managing projects; I recently received my PMP designation and enjoy teaching for S2insight and helping their clients launch projects effectively. Finally, innovation and invention feed my love of surprise! I've been teaching a theory of creative problem solving known as TRIZ for over 10 years to people around the world. TRIZ and other approaches to learning have helped my brain break out of the negative aspects of engineering/analytical training; and I'm not there yet!

And, for those of you that didn't catch my side remark at the first conversation, I "married" into DePaul through my wonderful wife, Peggy St.John. (I told her "Hi!" from you, kate!!)
Do you have a website to share?
