“My professional focus has been applying Bowen theory to non-clinical settings, including family enterprises, family foundations and families of wealth. I have learned a lot. I am getting better at being able to manage myself in highly complex emotional systems. But I still have many questions. I am looking forward to the opportunity, to hear how other people think about organizational emotional systems, and what it takes to navigate successfully in them as an advisor.”

“As first a consultant, then CEO of a national consulting and staffing company, I committed myself to developing a new approach to both consulting and leadership based on Bowen theory. Perhaps most useful to the company, I began teaching Bowen theory as a framework for leadership to all of our employees. This monthly Learning exchange offers me the opportunity to continue learning and to share with others how widespread use of Bowen theory helps drive the culture of an organization.”

“After 15 years leading and consulting to clinical organizations with Bowen theory as my base, it has been absolutely fascinating to spend the last decade working closely with senior executives and their teams, in a wide variety of for-profit industries and situations, in small to mid-sized companies across the US. I am looking forward to digging into challenging situations together, in a vibrant learning exchange.”
