We're excited to welcome Dr. Todd Conklin, Senior Advisor to the Associate Director,
emphasis in Organizational Development and Human Reliability, at Los Alamos National
Laboratory. He has served in the Human Resource and Reliability Management and Training
arena for the last 15 years. His Book: Ways to Revitalize: Simple Revolutionary Acts and
Your Workplace
helps one, in a fun way, become a positive deviant in the workplace. His most
recent book, Pre-Accident Investigations, provides an introduction to organizational safety. 

National Public Radio has hosted him as a guest on “All Things Considered” and
“Morning Edition.”  Dr. Conklin speaks on Workplace Humor and Friendships; Workplace
Violence; High-risk Conflict Organizational Development; and Training for Recognizing Unusual
Behavior in the Workplace. This expertise results in a broad spectrum of courses which include
Appreciative Inquiry; Organizational Development, Conflict Management and Team Building;
Hostage Negotiation 101 and training for Recognizing Unusual Behavior in the Workplace; and
Violence in the Workplace. The Appreciative Inquiry model helps groups of people make decisions
based upon the past success of the individual members to build lightning fast consensus from groups
that often are unable to have agreement around difficult issues. Conflict Management and Team
Building is for facilitated sessions to help teams realize a more full potential, create a more positive
sociological environment, solve problems, plan ahead, and create new understandings or definitions
of scope, schedule, and cost.  Hostage Negotiation 101 training teaches the ins and outs of successful
negotiation with a hostage taker and is highly specialized for law enforcement and security corporate
personnel.

Recent presentations include ideas on how to make changes in companies from what is considered the
traditional views of safety concerns, which are becoming outdated and ineffective, to the new Human
Performance Safety Theory.  This theory invites administration, management and workers to come
together to look at systems that lead to  accidents and make changes before the accidents occur.

 Dr. Conklin has his BA in Communication, Southwestern College, Kansas, MA in Interpersonal
Communication, Fort Hays State University, and a Ph.D in Organizational Communication, University
of New Mexico.  He currently has his residence and office in Santa Fe, New Mexico and travels
worldwide doing consulting and training in organizational development and Human Performance Safety.
