The Use of Self and the Breath
As consultants, we know that the models, tools and techniques that we employ are secondary to the primary instrument in our consulting engagements, that is, our Self. Most, if not all, MSOD graduate programs have a course entitled, “Use of Self” that speaks to this. But what does this really mean? How does this “Self” come to be developed?
Join us for an experiential evening to inquire into these questions and to have a breath experience designed to connect you more deeply to your Self.
Alan graduated from Tufts University in 1971 with a degree in Chemical Engineering. He worked his entire career at Armstrong World Industries in Lancaster, Pennsylvania in various technical management roles in R&D and manufacturing. Alan came to OD beginning with his bottom-up implementation of a largely self-directed work team in the laboratory he managed. Such efforts were encouraged since Armstrong was committed to company-wide Total Quality, in pursuit of the Baldridge National Quality Award — which it won in 1995. In this supportive atmosphere, Alan’s OD education over the last 15 years included numerous NTL labs in Bethel, Maine, Barry Oshry’s Power Lab, and the MSOD program at AU/NTL. Alan retired in from Armstrong in 2008 and is now involved with various business “hobbies.” Alan’s primary business “hobby” – actually a calling – is as a breath work facilitator. He is certified in Integral Breath Therapy, a developmental and healing modality that he has been involved in for 15 years. Alan facilitates breath work for individuals and groups.
