Bob is a thoughtful progressive thinker who strives to balance innovative thinking with the practical work of people and organizations in communities. Bob has a unique ability to pay attention to emergent themes within group conversations; this ability requires patience, trusting the process, adaptability, and being responsive to what and who is in the room. If you are interested in having a conversation that is framed with compassion, non-traditional notions, commitment to social justice, and integrates the human spirit you will want to be in contact with Bob.
The Berkana Institute has helped us connect with a whole community of like-minded workers in different parts of the world who see many of the same possibilities we do to build healthy and resilient communities. We know there are others who are also working in communities to help people see and build on their strengths as they envision a better world for themselves and their families. Bob's way of being in the world – his deep curiosity and mischievous habit of challenging our thinking with a good question, has helped our work beyond measure. He showed us the basics and connected us to like-minded folk in different parts of the world, then stepped back to let the work unfold. A kind and generous soul. Thank you!
