As we approach 2020, the world is experiencing more change in one decade than in the three decades of the Industrial Revolution.

While change helps spur innovation and growth, too much change at such a fast pace incurs human costs and leads to heightened instability—impacting families, business, communities, education, and government.

Encompass Work & Family provides psychological consulting to alleviate the human costs of rapid change while encouraging the benefits of change in order to facilitate growth, learning, adaptation, innovation, resilience, positive relationships, essential knowledge transfer between the generations, and cultivate a meaningful legacy.

R.E.A.L. Solutions

REAL significantly improves work, family and individual functioning and remedies the adverse effects from rapid change.

One of the first solutions is to recognize what’s happening. That’s where I try to help. Naming the problem, or challenge, helps to illuminate the solution. After I identify the challenges, I work through people’s common defenses (denial, resistance, stress, fear, obsession, competition, shame, etc.) while implementing Resilient Education for Adaptive Learning (REAL), a solution-focused systemic methodology that facilitates growth, learning, adaptation, creativity, innovation, resilience, trust, positive relationships, meaning, and purpose.
