I am interested in the science and skill of helping others create desired lives, workplaces, and communities within a framework of social justice. In my research, writing, teaching and consulting, I cast a wide interdisciplinary net, integrating findings from the disciplines of intergroup dynamics, social identity, cognitive science, emotional self-management, planned change, barriers to change, systems theory, organizational behavior, social psychology, strategic management, community organization, and peace-building. My current focus is distilling this exciting and vast knowledge base down to a set of accessible skills and technologies that people may use to improve their everyday lives and their world.
