Areas of Interest
For over 30 years, I've been lucky to interview lots of people and then passed on what I've learned through books, teaching and consulting. In 2005 I retired from the Minnesota Extension Service where I served as professor and evaluation leader and began a part-time position as senior fellow in evaluation studies in the Department of Organizational Leadership, Policy, and Development. In addition, I occasionally teach classes as an adjunct professor in the School of Public Health and Epidemiology.
I've been invited to go to interesting places to help others improve their listening. I have had opportunity to work with talented research staff at a variety of government agencies, universities, foundations and research centers around the world. I am a past president of the American Evaluation Association and also active in the Qualitative Research Consultants Association.
I have learned the most important skills as a child: listen, treat others the way you would like to be treated, be polite, and don't talk with your mouth full. I also love stories, hardware stores, newspapers, and motorcycles. If I'm not at the office, I'm probably out riding the cycle or fishing with grandchildren. So just leave a message.
