Passion for Planning
I have a passion for planning. As a system thinker, I help leaders strengthen and grow their organizations through strategic planning.
For the past twenty years, I have been applying principles of behavioral systems analysis to create impactful strategic plans.
After completing a degree in architectural engineering in Germany, I moved to Texas in the 1980s. After several years, I realized that I enjoy interacting with people more than creating building plans on the computer. Exploring a range of counseling and psychology programs, I 'discovered' behavior analysis. Its focus on the interaction between the environment and human behavior was the perfect fit for me.
Education in Behavior Analysis
I received my Ph.D. from Western Michigan University with emphasis on behavioral systems analysis. At WMU, I have been appointed as adjunct faculty with the Department of Psychology. I received my M.S. in general behavior analysis from the University of North Texas.
I often get asked how I found my way into strategic planning. While at UNT, I worked at the Denton State Supported Living Center as a behavior therapist and curriculum developer. It was there that I became interested in organizational systems after attending a talk by Rick Saunders at a TxABA conference.
After learning about strategic planning while at Western Michigan University I have worked with executives and managers to create compelling mission, vision, values, and strategies in a wide range of industries and sectors.
