I developed my interest in communication and the use of language by studying the findings of the Palo Alto group lead by Watzlawick, systemic thinking, Neuro Linguistic Programming, Erickson’s indirect language, the strategic approach to human problem solving and by adopting a Psycho-Social approach to understand organizational dynamics.
