"For the past eight years, I have been a professor at Westminster College in Salt Lake City, Utah. Prior to becoming a full-time academic, I owned and operated my own Organizational Development consulting practice for 24 years.

My philosophy of teaching is that learning can--and ought to be--a joy. I don't mean "fun" in the rib-tickling sense, but joyful in the sense that satisfaction stems from working hard to master a complex and difficult challenge. My job is to find the right level of intellectual challenge to extend to my students; not enough and they grow bored; too much and they give up; the right amount and they learn and take joy in the learning. I strive to help students identify and capitalize on their own particular genius.

I'm the author of three books and editor of two more. I also serve as editor of an annual peer-reviewed academic journal. After more than 30 years in business, I have concluded that most managers and senior executives spend more time writing and speaking than they do crunching numbers. Leadership, in short, is more about communicating with other people than it is about analyzing financial performance.

My favorite courses to teach have been those that are designated with a "Writing Emphasis" for undergraduate college students. I've also coached upper-class undergraduate students and graduate students to become better writers. I've served on three dissertation committees. Writing and public speaking go hand-in-hand. Both require clarity of thought and clarity of expression. I've given keynote presentations across the U.S. and internationally. I was selected as a speaker for the past two years' Westminster Thinks Big event.

To paraphrase two of my favorite role models, George Herbert Palmer and E.B. White, I will do my best to help you to "write with care so that your reader may read with ease." I'm on your side. I'll meet you where you "are" in terms of your current proficiency at writing and will work with you to improve and to take pleasure in the process. Please contact" less...
