It's been a good run!
I started working in organizational conflict management in 1976 when I was elected President of my local teacher's union of 300 members, and went directly into contract negotiations. Since then it has been my honor to negotiate hundreds of labor contracts, mediate and arbitrate too many cases to count, trained negotiators, mediators, and facilitators, installed internal conflict management and mediation systems, and spoken on conflict management all across the United States.
The time has finally come to do something else. I have accepted the full time position of Dean of Academic Affairs at a small Christian liberal arts college here in town, starting immediately. As of today, Puls Conflict Management Associates is dissolved.
