In 1998 or so by Mary Ann Zarrett I was invited to share my resources and contribute. Leadership and governance, dialog and decision cultures were my theme and so I was not only happy to share such links and collections, but help to bring forward issues around suspense and variety. As this immense work of Mary Ann is not available at Vanderbilt, and can only retrieved by the WAY BACK machine, I have collected here some pieces and hope you visit with me earlier pages. If VUMC or other sites are more comprehensive or build on the work below, please let me know.

Guidelines for Dialogue

Here is the Biography from 1999: I was not only proud to be included, but see a lot of treasures collected here which need to be saved and preserved. In review, looking back 10 years, I am surprised to see what multi-media treasures, audio and video have been already listed at that time, and I feel it would be much needed research to check the quality and width available over the years. Please consult the original pages.
