TBT: Geary A. Rummler 1981

I was there at MTEC the day this was video taped. April 1981.

I would officially join Motorola’s Training & Education Center the next week. I came in to our temporary location at the Gould Center in Schaumburg IL – with the Picasso out front – out there in this western suburb of Chicago, early – by one week – to see Geary.

I was working alongside his brother-in-law in Saginaw Michigan when this opportunity came up. From my boss and co-worker I had learned an ISD methodology at Wickes Lumber based on things Rummler and Gilbert had done at Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan in Detroit – where Geary’s brother, Rick, worked. Now I was going to get to work with The Man.

He was a friend of mine.

He was a business associate of mine.

 

Here he is wearing a CADDI hat. CADDI Inc. was my consulting firm prior to starting EPPIC Inc.

The time for ISPI’s Spring Conference is approaching.

So I have been thinking about him. A lot. Happens every spring. His birthday is April 16th.

So there are too many reminders. For someone who shared so freely. And had such an impact on me.
