T&D: I Have Been Lucky To Have Such Mentors In My 1st 3 Years In the Biz

… And To Have Captured & Acquired So Many On Video

Most of the following 24 videos are mine – shot and produced by me. Some are simply in my possession – provided to me by the subject of the videos.

I have posted them in the order that I was introduced to them, and their work, between 1979 and 1982.

I was introduced to them and their work at Wickes Lumber beginning in August of 1979; then at the NSPI Chapter of Detroit beginning in September of 1979; then at the NSPI national Conference in Dallas in April 1980; then at work for Motorola beginning in June 1980; and then at the Chicago Chapter of NSPI beginning in 1981.

I share all of these that you might learn something about them, and from them.

Geary A. Rummler (RIP)

I was introduced to the work of Rummler in 1979 as soon as I took my job at Wickes Lumber in Saginaw. I then met him F2F at the NSPI Conference in April 1980. And then again one week before my official start day at Motorola in June 1981, when I attended his one day workshop (video below).

Tom Gilbert (RIP)

I was introduced to the work of Gilbert in 1979 as soon as I took my job at Wickes Lumber in Saginaw. His was the second book I was given to read about Human Performance- but it took me three attempts to get through it.
