2Ways of Knowing
A framework for accessing the power of linear AND circular thinking.
My career path has been anything but linear. It has been consistently fascinating to me, and somehow everything has become related. I began as an exploration geologist working in Eskay Creek camp, northern BC, Hemlo Camp Ontario, NWT and various places prospecting and optioning properties in the Yukon. Then Yukon Land Claim negotiations caught my interst and I worked as a Federal Land Negotiator during the completion of the UFA and fist four Final Agreements. For a while I was a member of the Yukon Water Board and Chair of the Land Use Planning Council. I also worked as a consultant for several Yukon First Nations over the past few decades. All this experience came together when I was given the opportunity to be a Fellow at SFU Centre for Dialogue. I had noticed a pattern of two ways of knowing that I had experienced working for the mineral industry, Federal and Territorial governments and First Nations. SFU gave me the opportunity to explore this interest in a deeper way. Furthering the 2 Ways of Knowing Project has been the most exciting part of my career so far. I love it when things come together.
I live in the Yukon, with my dog and two daughters.
The 2 Ways of Knowing Framework has wonderful potential for fostering leadership for the 21st Century, supporting cross cultural engagement, expanding options in conflict situations, organizational development, personal growth and transformations of all kinds.

Politicians once lied to hide facts that made them look bad. They knew it was wrong but they played the odds against getting caught. Reagan said his administration had not traded weapons to Iran to secure the safe release of hostages. They probably did a cost-benefit...
