I was recently asked about the objectives and values of the “H2O” (or, Help to Ourselves/Others) educational approach.  Here are some of the primary objectives of the H2O for Education approach (Part I) and the values represented by the objectives (Part II):

by Dr. Brian Higley | Add comment

I just read an article by a friend of mine who is one of those rare people that is truly concerned with helping others change in ways that genuinely enhance their ability to be a “trusted advisor” to others, Jack Malcolm.  For a rock-solid list of ways to make changes that can increase your own credibility while also helping to spread what I call a “Culture of Sanity,” I highly recommend Jack’s article, “Content is Still King–Long Live the King.”
