Robert Brown, Ph.D.
Consultant in Human Behavior
With a doctorate in psychology, over 50 years of experience and two dozen books, Bob Brown has made a substantial contribution to the lives of thousands of people. At age 17, he decided to find out why people did what they did, which he defined as "why do people get out of bed in the morning?" His findings led to his book, Personal Wisdom: Making Sense of You, Others and the Meaning of Life.
His career includes clinical psychology, behavioral medicine, sports psychology, teaching, leadership and organizational development, business management consulting, and Lean Thinking leadership. He has taught at the University of California, San Diego, the University of Washington, St. Andrews University in Scotland among others as well as numerous workshops and conferences on three continents. His books include business management, personal growth, golf, and novels.
Although now semi-retired, he is passionate about his new effort of creating online learning experiences targeting business leadership and people who want to live meaningful lives. Courses are informal and personal, with solid content, much of it unique to Bob. All of them created to make your life easier, more productive, more enjoyable and meaningful.
His courses are serious, a collection of the current best thinking for each topic. They are designed like graduate school courses, including how to succeed and why this way makes sense. You will learn how to apply your ideas, not just Bob's. He promotes hard work, caring and the joy of one more day.
His first set is on Business Management, including 1) Problem Solving and Decision Making, 2) Creating and Sustaining High Performing Teams, 3) Leadership 4) Change Management and 5) Communicating for Impact. Bob plans on at least 3 more foundational courses.
He then began a second set on Personal Development, Advanced Life Skills, 1) personal independence and freedom. 2) coping with your faulty senses and thinking processes 3) finding purpose, success and happiness 4) Controlling Stress and 5) Five Questions to Answer Before You Die. More courses will be forthcoming.
Besides Personal Wisdom, his 24 books include:
· The HST Model For Change
· The People Side of Lean Thinking
· Mistake-Proofing Leadership (with Rudy Williams)
· Transparent Management
· My First Ten Days in Heaven (novel)
· The Way of Golf
Bob lives with his wife and a few animals, wild and domestic, north of Seattle. Plans include finishing his 5th novel, spoiling his grandchildren and shooting his age at golf. Two out of three isn't bad.
