Teaching Interests and Areas of Expertise
I teach courses on The Practice of Self-Management, a
challenging curriculum that cultivates human capital by developing
positive qualities necessary for sustainable and effective professional
action. The course develops the skill of mindfulness, a focused and
deliberate moment-to-moment awareness. Mindfulness is a powerful tool
for short-circuiting destructive cycles of stress and irrational
emotional actions that debilitate performance. With practice, it
enhances clarity, focus and judgment, enables more skillful
decision-making, improves communication and interpersonal relationships,
and fosters greater quality of life.
Current Research Interests
I am currently writing about long-term mindfulness
practitioners and the effects practice has on positively transforming
their personal lives and enhancing their professional commitments.
I co-founded the Quality of Life Research Center, located at
the Drucker School, in 1999. Currently, in addition to teaching, I am
in private practice using mindfulness-based tools with individual
professionals and organizations to develop their managerial capacities.
