Craig Wasserman

As a management consultant, trainer and lecturer for the past three decades, Craig Wasserman has left consultant-speak behind to focus in common sense ways on the uneasy, unfamiliar moments that managers encounter as they develop relationships with their employees. He helps managers explore their ultimate responsibility for making these critical organizational relationships work. He shows managers how to deal head-on with their internal apprehensions and external realities, how to master the tasks that are especially awkward for them, and how to perform as intelligent, practical leaders.

Craig earned his degrees from The American University in Washington D.C.: a Bachelor of Arts in Organizational Development, a Masters of Arts in Education, and a Doctor of Philosophy in Counseling Psychology.

He followed these studies with a year’s Post Doctoral Internship at the University of Maryland, and immediately cofounded Wasserman/Katz. He took a 2 1/2 year sabbatical from the firm to work as Vice President, Human Resources and Organizational Development at Browning Ferris Industries.

Today Craig lives in Steamboat Springs, Colorado with Kathleen, his wife of twenty seven years.

Doug Katz

For four decades, Doug has been advising managers on the most intelligent ways to steward their organizations and navigate their relationships with employees and colleagues.

In addition to his consulting work from California to Washington, DC, Doug is often retained to facilitate meetings and conferences addressing controversial issues affecting an organization or community. He has been involved in a fifteen year study of national labor and employment trends to help his clients prepare for emerging workforce challenges. He was a guest instructor on Business Ethics in the University of Maryland’s Honors Program from 2002-2006 and has served on the Boards of The Grauer School, the Pretrial Justice Institute, IDC Marketing, Inc., Red Shark Technology, and The Woolly Mammoth Theater Company.

JamArtz is a branding and communication design studio, an outgrowth of Wasserman/Katz that Doug launched in 1990. Having grown up in a New York City advertising family, and having worked as a fashion and product photographer in a New York agency, Doug uses his commercial illustration, design, and copywriting skills to serve the needs of some of Wasserman/Katz’s clients. The studio now stands on its own, creating identity systems, marketing copy and collateral, fundraising communications, poster art, signage, and editorial illustration for local, regional and national clients.

Doug earned Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts degrees in Clinical Psychology from The American University in Washington, DC. He was awarded an NIMH Clinical Training Fellowship and an NIMH Research Assistantship. He completed a clinical internship, upon graduation served as an editorial consultant with a publisher of academic texts, and soon after co-founded Wasserman/Katz. Doug lives in San Diego, California with his wife of thirty five years.
