Managing for the Wholes with Holistic Management
This month we learn from Kirk Gadzia about Holistic Management practices and how we get started managing for the wholes. Where do you start and what all should we take into consideration when trying to be holistic in our management approach? Kirk touches on each of these points in this month's training.
Kirk Gadzia owns and operates Resource Management Services, a training and consulting firm located in Bernalillo, NM. He is a Certified Educator with Holistic Management International and the Savory Institute. Kirk has over 30 years experience teaching the concepts of Holistic Management and has taught over 250 Holistic Management training seminars and workshops internationally.
The focus of his work is a holistic approach to agriculture and life, whereby land, animals, crops, wildlife and other resources are planned into the operation and financial picture. The model for making this work is mimicking natural systems and balancing life style with long and short term goals. The decision making process used to achieve this balance is called Holistic Management.
