memories

As a doctoral student at MIT, I cross registered for Richard Hackman's graduate seminar in group dynamics at Harvard. What a marvelous and unique experience that was. Professor Hackman’s knowledge of the field, analytical mind, enthusiasm, and refreshing personality fueled wonderful discussions. Over the years, I kept track of his research and saw him speak at several conferences. We also collaborated on a project to improve the management of symphony orchestras. Richard Hackman's work has served as the foundation in group processes for my own writing, teaching, and process consultation. To experience Richard Hackman’s soul in this existence was a blessing. He will be missed, but his insights and contributions live on ………………………………………………………….. My condolences to his family.
