For more than two years I have respectfully declined multiple invitations to seriously consider applying my “conflict as opportunity©” philosophy and skills specifically within public K-12 school settings.  I believed I had “more important” business consultation engagements to pursue in the private sector. Volunteer Work Can Often Be So Precious I decided last November to […]

Personal peak performance interests you, no? You can now draw upon our STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematical) understandings of human performance to guide you.

“Conflict as opportunity” requires respect. No?

Disrespect

I recently completed a personally time-consuming review and deeper analysis of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) understandings related to human performance. My STEM analysis included examination of how our Central Nervous System (CNS) hierarchically triages its finite resources automatically.  These automatic responses are faster than thought and are dependent upon our immediate interpretation of circumstances […]

My family taught me to be responsible, to work for my accomplishments, and to constructively consider others in the process.  I was particularly interested in math and science, taking all the courses I could in high school, and I performed well.  I was […]

Our company is re-branding! “Peace of Mind for Peak Performance” amidst “Differences as Opportunities” and “Bridges to Business Culture Advantages” (Part I). I (Norman) have recently come to recognize the “silver thread,” well, actually, more like the “silver–copper–gold–fiber-optic braid,” that best defines what I have been doing for 25+ years professionally, when in my own […]

“Thinking like an owner” is structural as well as attitudinal/behavioral.   The vast majority of private entrepreneurial companies in North America and elsewhere are closely held.  This means that only those people who actually gathered their resources for the specific purpose of founding the company, often putting all they had on the line — or those […]

I have, over the course of the last two years, experienced an incredible “Ah, ha!” understanding! This follows 25 years professional experience as a psychologist and as an interest-based, conflict resolution consultant, facilitator, and trainer in the private and public health sectors. –  As a result, I have, over the course of the last two […]
