Hi, David!

I'm starting to thread into the management field myself. My Chancellor in
my university back home in the Philippines (University of the Philippines
Mindanao) has just offered me a challenging post in our School of
Management. It looks like we can be fellow venturers, a construct I
am learning first hand from a master pcp theorist himself -- Professor
James Mancuso. He is a roaring wave who is letting me take a surfer's
view from the crest of his scholarship. It has been one slot-rattling joy
ride for me since he received me in his home and his university,
the University at Albany. It was'nt like tectonic construal shifts you
experience when a master and a venturer create a dialectic -- you give
birth to narratives upon narratives woven around your Self and the
elements in your life. I only have shorter than a couple of weeks to
interact personally with Professor Mancuso. And I'm anxious (fearful?
threatened?) to take that job because all this time I have only been
venturing in criminology, development communication, sociology and
psychology. What would you ask Professor Mancuso if you were in my
place?//Antonio G. Moran, Visiting Researcher, University at Albany, State
