Replying to LO5995 --

You know the hardest part of Total Quality Management or The Learning
Organization is a psychological shifting from X to Z, letting go of
control. Our abilities to trust others by changing from managing to
serving is really very hard. As a professor, I find it arduous to let go
of teacher talk. Managers manage as they have been managed. Changing
experience -- not preaching change -- is key. Slogans and pontificating
hortative language is not effective Deming observes.

Alexander Lowen, a student of Wilhelm Reich, developed a set of
educational tools known as bioenergetics. Bioenergetics deals directly
with experience where learning is felt in practice, not taught in theory.
Dramatic changes happen fairly quickly with these methods.
