Description of Scot's Endeavors
In an effort to share my interests with others I created this personal webpage. My main work is serving as a teacher and organizational change leadership consultant. I currently teach as an Adjunct Professor at University of Maryland University College (UMUC). I specialize in the areas of: developing human potential, sustainability, energy conservation/ efficiency, climate change mitigation and Human Resource Management. I am in the lifelong process of mind-body-spirit integration and mastery. This site is a window into many parts of my life. I like to use each moment of my life as a moving meditation. I enjoy helping people connect to their own soul or spirit, and serve as signpost to help people guide themselves on their own life path. Each day I look to serve and support others. If you want to connect with me, please use the contact form on this website or access my other websites via links on this site.
Change Tactics: Change Tactics, LLC is my consulting business. I use tools and techniques based on the science of organizational change to solve organizational challenges. I focus on energy, sustainability and climate change mitigation issues. On every project I work to develop human potential within the organization I am supporting. To learn more see my website http://www.changetacticsllc.com
Writing: I write mainly about organizational change leadership, sustainability and energy. I have written two books, a book chapter and several articles. I am contributing writer to the GreenBiz blog, Thomson Reuters Sustainability blog, and The Green Tie blog (National Association for Environmental Management). Most of the writing I do is unpublished due to being in the form of deliverables for clients. See my "Writing" tab/page listing of publications for more details.
Visual Arts: I personally best think and solve problems when I can visually represent the ideas and their relationships. Some of the media I use for creating visual cues are (1) photography, (2) painting and (3) by creating graphics in presentations (usually in powerpoint).
TaiChi/Qigong: Since 1999, I have practiced qigong, neigong and tai chi. I am certified by B.K. Frantzis through Energy Arts to teach "Energy Gates- Level 1" qigong (more specifically is neigong), and am listed on the Energy Arts website as an instructor.
Leather Craft: For 3 years I have been learning how to make handmade leather crafts using the old English style hand-craft leatherwork including dying leather, burnishing, applying coating to leather, adding decorative edging, adding metal fittings. I have made flute cases, wallets, belts, document cases and many other items.
Bansuri: Since 2014 I have been making bansuri flutes in the North Indian style (as in India). The bansuri is a transverse flute of South Asia made from a single hollow shaft of bamboo. The 2 main sources of inspiration for me are my flute teacher Deepak Ram and the flute maker simply named Anubodh.
