He is CEO of Group Harmonics and author of Make Work Great (McGraw-Hill, 2010) and Four Secrets to Liking Your Work (FT Press, 2008). Both books won Awards of Excellence from the International Society for Performance Improvement. He is a leader in the application of analytical models to group and organizational effectiveness and output, including whole-group intervention, simulation, facilitation, and instructional design.
