I have always enjoyed creating through the written word. I was thrilled when Dr. H. James Harrington invited me to write a draft for Book 2 in his Little Big Book Series, which is in the category of business and management. Our book was targeted to high performance teams while being applicable to all other communication in a profit or not-for-profit setting. Please see my work with CRC Press!

Biography

I spent a career in the Baptist denomination as a pastor and denominational executive and formally retired in 2006.

Since the mid-1990's I moonlighted as a consultant. I started with non-profit management issues in local churches and camps. In one of the congregations I met Dr. Ken Lomax, who worked as a colleague of Dr. H. James Harrington. I was recruited as part of their team in doing consulting with not-for-profit organizations as well as mid-sized to small cap companies.

Areas of Research / Professional Expertise

    As part of my doctoral studies I did a project designed to reactivate lapsed and inactive church members. I trained four teams to visit a cross-section of about 30 church families who had been out of church for several years. The training included how to listen to the families. It required 5 visits with objectives for each visit that built on one another in a progressive way. The results were that an astounding 70 per cent of the families began attending services again.

    During my career, I continued studying communication. In particular, I sat under 200 hours of workshop training with Dr. John Savage, who at that time was founder and director of L.E.A.D. Consultants.
