Robert Brown, Ph.D.
Unique Insights for Personal and Business Success
I am a "focused" educator. Instead of wide-ranging 20-hour Master Courses, I create courses focused on the most important elements of a subject. To build a high-performing team, I teach you how to use the Four-Part Teaming Model; for solving problems, the five-step Harnessing the Speed of Thought tool. Of the life-skills I teach, some I created, others have proven themselves for over a thousand years. You will learn what you need to know.
I don’t necessarily teach the best known or most popular method either, but based on my experience, you will learn the best method. After 50+ years, I know what has value, what works and what doesn’t work. I began teaching adults in 1969 and business consulting in 1971, earned a Ph.D. in psychology in 1973 and have helped people achieve success ever since.
My career includes clinical psychology, behavioral medicine, sports psychology, university teaching, leadership and organizational development, business management consulting, and Lean Thinking leadership. I've taught at the University of California, San Diego, the University of Washington in Seattle, and St. Andrews University in Scotland among others as well as numerous workshops and conferences on three continents. My twenty-something books include business management, personal growth, golf, and novels.
Although now 77 and mostly retired, I am passionate about my new effort of creating online learning experiences targeting business leadership and people who want to add value to their lives. My courses will make your life easier, more productive, more enjoyable and meaningful.
