New Book on Master Teachers – Conversations with Great Teachers – Profiles Interaction Associates Senior Consultant Michael Ansa

A new book profiling master teachers in business and across numerous fields, Conversations with Great Teachers, profiles Interaction Associates senior consultant Michael Ansa about his role as a developer of business leaders, coach, and former school teacher.

Interaction Associates is a 40-year innovator of advanced methods for developing facilitative leaders, who have a unique capacity to engage others in solving intricate, challenging problems.

“It’s an honor to have Michael as a featured interview in ‘Conversations…'” said Linda Dunkel, President and CEO of Interaction Associates. “Michael develops leaders all over the world — from Singapore to London, Syria and China, and even Dallas, Texas. He has a lot to say about how leadership can be fostered in businesses around the world.”

In his chapter, Ansa describes the three capabilities he believes are essential for people working to develop leaders. “One, the ability to ask really good questions. . . Two, the ability to listen. And three, the ability to move from abstract to concrete back to abstract again,” said Ansa in an excerpt from his interview published in the book.

Conversations with Great Teachers, by Bill Smoot, is published by Indiana University Press and includes wide-ranging interviews with people who teach everything from high school curricula to racecar driving to law enforcement.
