Who I am
I am the principal of Sears Associates. My work of helping others build their ways started with a career in carpentry and over the last 45 years has evolved through the worlds of human services and construction management, to university extension and organizational consulting services. The thread continues to be one of “making hard stuff doable.” With a BS in Liberal Studies, an MA in Conflict Resolution, and years at Cornell University’s School of Industrial & Labor Relations as a member of the outreach faculty, leveraging big picture thinking into the immediate issue continues to be my passion.
