  1. Dear APA team,

    For many years I have been a practicing psychologist. I’ve really loved the behavioural elements that permeate throughout every part of every business course I’ve taken, and my success to date, is most definitely attributed to my abilities as a naturally interested and developmental human psychologist.

    I would like to know how to best further engage myself within this wonderful field so I may guide more people and organizations to greatness.

    One of my thoughts had been to build a stronger academic foundation, even though I do teach in University Management Strategy and Facilitation & Negotiation programs.

    Thank you for your support,
