Replying to LO24627 --


I have developed a number of organizational models/interventions based on
mythological figures and/or the mythological journey. Some of these have
been published and some not. I can tell you more about these if you are
interested. I'm an old armchair cross-cultural mythologist---have been
worjking these themes for over twenty years, so by the time I became
involved in Oragnizational transformation work it seemed a natural to
integrate the two.

Rainy skies,
